Dave Mustaine Is Crazier Than Billy Corgan, Experts Agree
In an interesting showdown, Megadeth mastermind Dave Mustaine faced Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan to determine an interesting question - who's crazier?

Both known for eccentric statements and decisions, the two frontmen were dubbed strikingly similar in a latest Decibel Magazine feature. In fact, such similarities were the main reason for the ridiculous competition to happen in the first place.

After five excruciating rounds, Dave took home the title, beating Billy 3:2. Details below.

Round One: Questionable Investments

Billy owns a regional wrestling promotion, Dave owns a tiny pony. Dave wins.

Round Two: Religion

Billy wrote an album about Jesus and rock, started a "Mind-Body-Soul" integration website and is into psychic mediums. Dave's Christian outbursts are very well known, but interestingly enough, Billy wins.

Round Three: Music

Billy's "massive underground vault of unreleased material" turns the score to Corgan's advantage, it's 2:1 for Billy now.

Round Four: Statements in the Press

Billy: "The Pumpkins, as a business, is a creative enterprise that's constantly generating new waves of energy, through music, through cultural f--king-with ... through the Tarot."

Dave: "There's so many houses without a dad that it's just terrible. I mean, you know how they used to say there should be a license to have a baby? Well, as far-fetched as that sounds, I really think that, if the parents aren't going to stick together, they shouldn't make that kind of commitment to life. I watch some of these shows from over in Africa, and you've got starving women with six kids. Well, how about, you know, put a plug in it? It's like, you shouldn't be having children if you can't feed them."

It's 2:2 now.

Round Five: Conspiracy Theories

List of conspiracy theories Billy Corgan believes in: Chemtrails, the New World Order, the TSA as Gestapo, HAARP, Genetically Modified Foods, "criminal wars," mind control, all news as propaganda.

List of conspiracy theories Dave Mustaine believes in: Chemtrails, the New World Order, birtherism, FEMA camps, global government, basically anything involving Obama taking away our guns/freedom

After examining the two singers' stage rants, Dave won the final round, earning him the title of the crazier one.

Apart from making some genius music, Mustaine and Corgan clearly made a few questionable moves and statements throughout their career. It's all in good spirit of course, but do you think Dave is indeed crazier?
