DAVE MUSTAINE - "Half These Little Farts Wouldn't Say This To My Face Cuz They'd Piss Their Pants If They Stood In Front Of Me" Page 2

While Mustaine may have disconnected with a portion of his thrashing fan-base, his Cyber Army (the name of Megadeth's official fan club) marches merrily-along. But there's no question that the band's latest mental collision is very groovy, very rhythmic and very song-oriented. It's not an album to beat your head against the wall. Despite the fact that mature may be the best way to describe Super Collider, some fans might be saying 'should we revoke his Big 4 membership card?
"(Laughs) Yeah, but that's a handful of trolls Tim, you know that. Our real fan-base respect what we do, they know that Megadeth isn't limited to just thrash nomenclature. We've never fit within those parameters, and anybody that has ever asked us what our music is like I've always said we're just Megadeth. Like a jazz, classical, punk-influenced band that plays all different kinds of songs. We're the guys that wrote 'Black Friday', but were different. We're not like AC/DC, we're not like MOTORHEAD, our songs aren't really similar, straight-forward rock songs. It's straight-forward metal. Some people like 'em, some people don't, but I think with the internet, you can have a guy with a hundred email accounts talking smack on these bottom-feeder websites. People read that and think 'this guy is real' and he's not real, there's two or three people that their whole campaign is to talk shit about everybody. Not just Dave Mustaine, not just Megadeth, they hate everything. Half these little farts wouldn't say this to my face cuz they'd piss their pants if they stood in front of me."
But Megadeth seem to be on their own 'Devil's Island' of sorts! Puns aside, you ask anybody in radio, a successful tune will make you swing, tap your toe, snap your fingers and maybe even snap your neck! And that's the feeling with Super Collider.
