CKY guitarist/vocalist Deron Miller has slammed Megadeth mainman Dave Mustaine for threatening to cancel any shows where "full-on Satanic" bands are also scheduled to appear (read story on UG). In a statement sent to Blabbermouth.net, Miller wrote, "reading that Rotting Christ has to cancel shows because of Dave Mustaine's recent and absurdly sudden Christianity is one of the most obviously ridiculous dramatic newslines in music. This from the guy that wrote 'Wake Up Dead'.

"Dave, I love Megadeth, but join reality. Metallica was more succesful...so what?! Get over it. And now all of a sudden Christ is your savior... How weak. Take some credit for your own accomplishments.

"Remember in the '80s when the parents of your fans insisted that you were Satanic? You have turned into them. Stop creating drama. Your music is suffering and the fans have noticed. You've given Rotting Christ the 'Hook In Mouth'!!!!!!! Don't ruin your legacy for the longtime supporters."

    The man has the right not to want to be involve with such things. It is a free country. Everyone else should get over it.

    1 - Im not even sure Rotting Christ was confirmed. From what I understand, someone at the Deth boards made mention that they were a full on satanic band that were on the cards to open for em, and Dave replied that he'd look into it. 2 - Dave also said that he didnt want for them to cancel, and that hed reschedule the Deth concerts. 3 - Its not as though Dave goes out of his way to harp on about his experience with Metallica. For several months hes been closing threads and asking people not to bash Metallica. Whenever people hear his comments opposite to that effect, its usually as a result of an interviewer pushing the point, goading him. Bu then againg, he should heve the nerve by now to just say hes not going to answer those questions. The same goes for Deron Miller, Kerry King and others who seem to feel the need to rag on Mustaine. 4 - Its Dave's choice (as its his band) to choose who opens for him. People haven't gotten the facts straight, and ended up shooting their mouths off and looking like complete morons, making this molehill into a mountain. Let it stop.

    cky sucks, end of story. rotting corpse? with a name like that, how good can they possibly get? worlds being done a favor with them not playing...
    Steeze_it_up
    k.... Put it this way, Deron - Skater Rocker Dave - Metal God No contest in my mind.....
    Hey, CKY idiot: When you get as skilled, famous, or brilliant as Dave Mustaine, then you can talk. Until then, shut the *** up and let real musicians decide what they want to do.
    ^a little late but, props for that.

    Look, Dave Mustaine rocks and CKY sucks, but Dave is being an ******* in saying that. I mean, just because you want to be a pussy doesn't mean everyone else has to pay for it.

    Mustaine is a f**king droog. Sure hes awesome and S*** but hes been ruining his music.Cky does sucks. But anyway back to the topic why should rotting christ have to cancel their show becuase dave is a sellout? every week i read about Mustaine whining or b***ing about something he needs to suck it up and stop being a f*G

    Funny how people let the a person's past define his or her's *present* choices as hypocrisy. The CKY singer referred the 80s. Mustaine became a Christian not too long ago, relatively speaking. He had a change of heart and he's sticking to it. You can't let anything before the change of heart be a part of judging a person's present character.

    mustaine is right if he wants to pretend being christian he can because he is mustaine and CKY sux who is Deron Miller to diss mustaine
    rrjackson
    at least dave has the balls to stand up for what he belives in and im a huge megadeth fan but it is bull shit aboutwhats goin on p.s CKY sucks
    gunsn'pjs
    whoever said being christian is dumb is an ******* i mean come on...that is ignorant dave is a great musician and i think its cool that he is standing up for what he believes in.
    sctblr
    he has the right to stand up for what he believes in, but that is the same as saying that someone decides that they dont like jesus and send P.O.D. home cuz they have a belief in jesus christ, i mean, you have to look at it in both ways, someone has the right to believe whatever they want to believe and if they choose to feel upset about it than they should take of the problem themselves, dave mustaine really didnt take care of his problem, he more or less jus pushed it away, which in my opinion is the worst thing to do in the world, if you choose to be upsetened by somethin, confront it and be a MAN about it, dont be some whinny lil boy and push it away from you, it will come back to bite you in the ass one day

    Wake up dead!?!?! WTF does that song have to being satanic. Deron is a raisin-balled, Jesus hating, nazi-communist piece of s***.
    pvpredator5682
    devon needs to stop with the cock and relies that mustaine could just be a bitch and take it or stick up for himself for his believes(like he did). P.Sjesus rulesP.P.SSo does metallica rules too.

    I dont think anybody here should make the argument that CKY are nobodies who shouldn't have a place to make an opinion and bash them for doing so. Because really, who are any of us to make that opinion, its pretty hypocritical (being nobodies ourselves) isn't it? Just the same, its just Derons opinion, if Dave really cared that much about his cause, he wont give a shit about what Deron has to say. Although.. he really seems to care about what other people thing with the whole Rotting Christ thing.

    Deron Miller must be a very retarded man or something, because I don't think he took the time to read Dave Mustaine's statement before blasting him out of the water. Rotting Christ is not being forced to do anything. Mustaine is simply pulling Megadeth from that tour. Rotting Christ will be playing as usual. To Deron Miller - Get your facts straight. Don't hate on Dave because you don't have anywhere near his amount of skill.

    he said in an interview he wouldnt sing some of his 80's stuff like good mourning/black friday. but meh its his choice
    MetalUpTheAss
    I'm not Christian, but Deren Miller can *** hismelf. Dave Mustaine will smoke him in guitaring or singing any day, and if he wants to be a Christian I don't give a shit. He's still kicking ass.
    fauth
    oh ya fauth and i think its safe to say that you cant shred
    I never said anything about shredding in my post. I quoted someone else who was talking about shredding. Asshole. Dave Mustaine is an attention *****.
    Metallica
    i belive that everyone has a right to religion or non religion. but i know that nobody should be aloud to, in any way, try to influence others to being a certain religion. everyone should find religion on their own, or choose not to be religious.

    dave is going to take that crap from a bunch of skaters?

    CKY is not being barbaric and slanderous, they didn't say that they were agreeing with rotting christ, they were just stating that dave mustaine all of a sudden changes to christianity at the drop of a hat and that he should quit bitching about metallica(which i agree with). Plus, i think their fans thought they were satanic cause of some of their music and he wore inverted crosses onstage(i've seen pics)

    If he were a real Christian, he would extend his love and respect to all of God's children. I am not a Christian or religious in any way so maybe I see it differently but if everyone would drop the whole holier than thou attitude and just play the ***ing music we'd all be better off.
    Thats one of the stupider things Ive heard today. "If he were a real christian" (which he apparently is) he would not help support bands that are anti-christian. And he didnt turn Christian at the drop of a hat, its just that he is finally standing up for what he believes in. Makes sense to me.....
    Clarkinator
    Its Dave's tour, he can play with whom he wants. And he didnt say he was kicking Rotting Christ off, he said they could stay and Megadeth would play elsewhere or another time. Also, Deron slamming Dave for being a Christian is really immature. This coming from a guy whos band only has popularity cuz their drummer's brother made it big skateboarding and doing dumb shit on TV
    BulopMylo
    For fu*k's sake... this is meant to be about the fu*kin' music! Not politics or religion or squabbling or even record sales, it's music! Leave the rest alone, it's what war (justified or not) is for.
    TheAmazingRando
    Mustaine is refusing to play with(and ultimately support, since he would be drawing a much bigger crowd than them) a band that blatantly opposes and mocks his beliefs. How is there anything wrong with that? I can't imagine Rotting Christ would want to have a Christian band opening for them.
    ibanez666
    i say. let them play. so what. just because rotting christ is against religion doesn't mean anything. its just the type of music they play. it will not kill anyone.

Dear idiot, THe shows cancelled are in greece, which clearly is NOT a part or territory of the United States of America. Dave is a ***ing hypocrite and the guy is right, he shouldn't be such a douchebag.
    utsapp89
    Dave's been a dick but I don't see a point in slamming him for being Christian.

    Also... hey ***ass, jesus loves everyone EVEN IF THEY DONT LOVE HIM BACK. Thats one of the Christian teachings. LEARN YOUR FUCKING SHIT BEFORE YOU SPEW IT ON THE INTARWEB YOU MORON.

    Mustaine is one of the greatest musicians of all time. His guitar is insane.
    I think its safe to say that Deron Miller is twice the musician Mustaine is or ever will be. Not only does he play very good guitar riffs, he SINGS over those riffs. Mustianr shreds, anyone can shred.
    are you ***ing retarded?
    Wylde
    you agree with me??? hahah pull your face out of your ass... megadeth blows youre f*cking head off... is that what you meant to say??? i think so
    anty
    Ok with megadeth withdrawing from that tour its going to leave alot of pissed of people, and the blame will obviously focus on rotting christ. Dave is a great guitarist, as is deron from cky. But if Dave is not going to play a concert because a band believes somethign different to him is showing him in the light of an *******. This is basically saying you better believe in Jesus or I wont play. That is not what the bible originally teached, until some big headed ***ers decided to cram it down our throats. Come on, Mustaine lived one of the most anti christian life styles and I think it is good that he has something to hold onto now. But it doesnt mean he should deprive fans world wide because a satanic band (which is mainly for the gimic anyway) is playing the same festival, its not like its a co headline or they are being forced to collaberate. If dave cannot handle the fact people do believe in other things that have nothing to do with christianity. A knife in the throat provided by his own willpower is well deserved.
    CKY_Alliance
    WOW,some of you sound like you think that CKY is a satanic band....well they are far from it...i guess Deron thought soemthing needed to be said so he said it.~~dotn like it get the *** over it.
    FLESH_INTO_GEAR
    CKY are not gay you retarded jumped up wannabe gangster! and CKY aren't skaters so all of you saying that get your ***ing facts straight or how can you expect anyone to take you seriously
    dub_1211
    can't we all agree that CKY has no talent and bam can suck my margera??? greasy little twit. he chokes on cock nightly.

    im not mental: first head, now mustaine. what's next, dani filth?
    yep, dave mustaine went back in time after head became a christain just so that he was a christain first. you really got that one right. retard.

    dont be a dumbshit. Deron wasn't bashing dave, he was telling him he's taking it too far. about that last part, since when do you have to have tons of skill to use your freedom of speech? ***ing idiot.
    GNR4EVER
    ^ That's not what happened at all you idiot, That band wasn't just Non-Christian it was satanic and ANTI-Christian. He wasn't refusing to play with them because they didn't believe the same things as him, they were openly opposing and insulting the things he believed in
    I think its safe to say that Deron Miller is twice the musician Mustaine is or ever will be. Not only does he play very good guitar riffs, he SINGS over those riffs. Mustianr shreds, anyone can shred.
    lol I actually laughed at that WOW! He can play riffs AND sing! Well F ucking Hell, Randy Rhoads and Jimi Hendrix have been reincarnated as the one person! play some sh itty CKY riffs AND Sing! WOW! call the F ucking papers on this one! Dave Mustaine Rules
