Dave Mustaine Talks Santorum, Satanic Bands

Dave Mustaine

Dave Mustaine is a tool who needs to keep his mouth shut, and focus more on not making the same record again. There, I said it…again.

In a new interview I read on Blabbermouth, Megadeth’s Mustaine sat down with noted right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, and the two talked a lot.

Mustaine talked about Rick “The Dick” Santorum: “Well, it’s no secret I’ve been writing songs about not being happy about the way that the peasants are treated in the valley. And being one myself, the lyrics in ‘Peace Sells’ talk a lot about what my beliefs are: I go to work when I have to, I go to court when I have to, I pay my bills, I believe in God. You know, all the things our founding fathers would have been proud of, you know what I mean!? And I was talking and doing an interview with this guy and innocently enough, he asked me what I thought about the candidates, and I went through the Republican candidates and I said what I thought of each one at the time.

“Because it was during that horrible, embarrassing smear campaign that they were all waging towards each other — I mean, seemingly like that. Everybody was just fighting instead of saying, ‘He may have done this, but I believe this, and I’m gonna fight against Obama.’…And it’s not even going after Obama, it’s going after the ideals that America was founded on…We have a constitution. I saw a joke the other day. Someone said that, I think, Syria was writing a new constitution and that they could have ours ’cause we don’t use it anymore. But to get back to the point, I was just talking about politics, like I did when I did Rock The Vote and the second person who picked up the story said I endorsed Rick Santorum.

“And I put out a press release after that that said I never used the word ‘endorsed.’ I said that I liked the guy because he jumped off the campaign trail to go be with his sick daughter. Now that, to me, whether you’re a football player or an astronaut, if you put your family first, you get kudos in my book.”

Dude…that is what you are supposed to fucking do when you have a family. To quote Chris Rock, “What do you want, a cookie?”

Mustaine also talked about performing with Satanic bands and gay people.

“When I got ‘saved,’ I told my agent, ‘You know what?! I have to kind of take this slow, because my arms hurt and I don’t know if I’m ever gonna play again [after my arm injury]. If I do play, there’s certain things I kind of wanna veer away from.’ I don’t wanna play with any Satanic bands. I’ll play with bands that have darkness in them, because we all have a little darkness in us or we wouldn’t be human. But guys that are confessed Satanists, I don’t really have time for that…I can control my emotions, because I know it’s not the sinners, it’s the sin. It’s like that whole thing about me being against gay marriage. I have the same position that Hillary Clinton and Obama have towards the gays. Look it up. I’m a Christian, I’m a heterosexual man. It’s like me worrying about cat owners. I don’t like cats. I don’t have anything against them, but I don’t want one. I know that’s a really crazy connection…I’m a born-again Christian, but I don’t push that on anybody. I had to tell the guy in Seattle, ‘I’m a Christian. Stop asking me these questions, dude. Gay stuff is not part of my life.’”
