Trying to think of a good band to blab about every Monday morning, without having a repeat, is getting quite difficult. It gets even harder trying to think of a song after a band has been decided. While I was scanning through my Facebook stuff, like most of the planet does every 5 minutes, inspiration hit me across the face like a cold, wet, fish. A great friend of mine posted the first few lyrics to a song that I can’t believe has taken me this long to use. It comes from a band whose lead axe-man originally started out in a once great thrash band, now corporate marionettes, called Metallica…you might’ve heard of the guy. He has gone down in history as “the dude Metallica woke up from a sound sleep, only to kick him out of the band, and hand him a bus ticket back home.” They call him Dave Mustaine….front-man for MEGADETH.
MEGADETH: Peace Sells
Over the years, I have noticed a gargantuan rift in the metal comunity conserning MEGADETH. Each person that I’ve talked to about the band has either been a die-hard fan, or hated Dave Mustaine with the same passion Ray Stantz had towards the pink slime (if you don’t get that referance, you are a dumb). I could never understand this great divide, being on the supporting side for Mustaine like I am. What is it about MEGADETH that causes so many of my metal brethren to shake their fists in rage? What could be the terribly aweful, no-good, very bad thing that has sparked a plethora of heated debates? This situation reminds me of the old tootsie-pop comercial…”The world may never know.”
