Dave Mustaine: 'God Could Have Used the Big Bang Theory to Create the World'
Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine recently discussed the group's current release "Super Collider," calling it "a little bit of a departure" for the band. During an interview with Rockline Radio, the singer/guitarist focused on the title track and the clash between his religious beliefs and the big bang theory. "It's associated with trying to determine if the big bang theory is correct," Mustaine said, "and [because] people know that I'm a Christian they're going like 'What are you doing now, Dave?' Trust me, I didn't pick that for controversy sake, I just thought it was cool." When asked directly on whether the theory is in conflict with his beliefs, Mustaine commented: "No, not at all. God could have used the big bang theory to create the world, who knows, I don't really care. I'm here and I'm happy [with] who I am, I'm happy [with] what I believe, I don't push my beliefs on anybody." The frontman continued, "That's one of the things I think really suck about people who claim to be Christians they try to tell other people how to live, it's like a nearly sober drunk no one wants to hear that. It's better to just kinda live it." Mustaine then focused on all the hard times he had in his life and overcoming such obstacles, saying, "I'm still victorious, I'm still successful, having a No. 6 record after many people in the liberal press have come after me. The public have spoken, they love me and they love what I stand for. For as many people don't like me, that's cool, I still have love in my heart for them." "Super Collider" was released on June 4 via Universal-powered label Tradecraft as the fourteenth Megadeth studio effort. With 29,000 copies sold in the US within the first week, it peaked at No. 6 on the Billboard 200 chart.
