Dave Mustaine: 'The Cowardice on the Internet P-sses Me Off So Bad'

Dave Mustaine has been talking with Juice TV about his frustration with cowardice and anonymity on the internet.

As the Megadeth frontman notes, "there's a lot of cowardice and anonymity on the Internet."

"The stuff that people say about you, they would never say to your face ... You can't be a living, breathing human being without having a Facebook page or Twitter account where someone is saying "you suck." Someone needs to invent a send button with an exploding email, where you send the e-mail and it blows a pile of turds up in your face."

Mustaine also discussed the band's latest album, "Super Collider," noting that many of the album's darker lyrics were inspired by his mother-in-law suffering from Alzheimer's:

"It's influenced by what goes on in my personal life. If my mother-in-law wasn't dying from Alzheimer's then I imagine it probably wouldn't be as sad as it is. 'The Blackest Crow' and 'Forget to Remember' are about her. My mom died like that. She was here and then she was gone. My mother-in-law has been like my surrogate 'role-mother' for the last 23 years, and to watch her die from Alzheimer's ... I don't know if you know anybody that has Alzheimer's, but it's a terrible, painful thing to watch. Easiest way to say this is it's like watching an ice sculpture melt in front of your eyes.

"I find it really disingenuous when artists act like they suffer for their art. "I'm so confused" ... no, you're such a poser! Be real, tell people who you really are, and then they know what they're getting ... I like to be genuine, I like to tell the truth."
