Gwar Frontman: Dave Mustaine Should 'Keep His Mouth Shut'
41
According to Blabbermouth.net, GWAR frontman Oderus Urungus has slammed Dave Mustaine for his controversial political views, saying that the Megadeth mainman should "keep [his] mouth f--king shut". During an interview with Turbo from RSU Radio and the Metal Meltdown conducted this past Wednesday, March 28 (see video below), Oderus noted that both he and Mustaine have been in the press a lot lately. "Yeah, but see, the difference between Dave Mustaine and Oderus is that Dave Mustaine, every time he opens his mouth, he makes a f--king idiot out of himself," the GWAR frontman said. "You know what?! Keep your mouth f--king shut, Dave Mustaine. Play your f--king guitar, all right?! Maybe keep it to the lyrics of 'Peace Sells'. Anything else... We don't wanna f--king hear about how Obama was born in Africa and how Rick Santorum is your man; he hates f--king heavy metal. Shut the f--k up, Dave Mustaine. Shut the f--k up, you God, cock-s---ing f---ot." Mustaine recently made headlines when he told Canadian television and radio personality George Stroumboulopoulos that he is certain that President Obama "was born somewhere else than America." "I have a lot of questions about [Obama], but certainly not where he was born," Mustaine said. "I know he was born somewhere else than America." When Stroumboulopoulos pointed out that this school of thought made the musician part of the so-called "birther" movement, Mustaine countered, "I'm not calling a question to it, I just, you know, it's a point. How come he was invisible until he became whatever he was in Illinois?" Stroumboulopoulos tried to further challenge Mustaine on his claims, causing the Megadeth frontman to attempt to change the subject. "I don't want to talk about my president," Mustaine said, before going on to admit that he was going to "have to do some more homework on where Obama came from."

    You know you're in trouble when a guy named Oderus Urungus is right in telling you off.

    Mustaine's comment may have been uninformed (read: stupid), but this seems like an awfully strong response... I think, as a general rule, when you call someone a "cocksucking faggot" or "Jesus's dirty ****ing shitprick", you tend to sound like the bigger idiot in an argument.

    It's Gwar you goofs, don't get all riled up over this. Oderus is always exaggerating things.

    Dave's music has always made it sound like he opposes tyranny, oppression, and corruption. Which is why it makes NNNOOO FUCKING SENSE that he's also a Christian republican.

    Hypocritical musician is hypocritical... And what political views AREN'T controversial? No matter what you think, there is always someone who doesn't agree with you.

    That's not fair, *****. I don't like GWAR either, but let them have their fanbase. Intolerance at it's finest. As for this, I agree. It needed to be said, and if GWAR had to do it, so be it.

    I know how to solve this, Dave VS Oderus - guitar battle, and the show will be free. Dont care who wins, they can figure that out, i just want a show.

    Being familiar with the band, I would have been shocked if this was coming from Dave Brockie, not Oderus Urungus. While Dave's sentiment would find itself partly in an Oderus statement, Oderus was the same person who threatened to rape Corey Taylor some good years back for implying other bands don't work as hard at their craft than Slipknot.

    Wow you people missed the point entirely. Look at how he's dressed, he's a goddamn SHOCK ROCKER. Exaggeration is what he's about. And Dave Mustain should just shut up. because his opinions about who should be president, gay rights, and where Obama is born are all objectively wrong. And he just keeps making an idiot out of himself for it.

    Thing is it's not like Mustaine is just saying it for no reason, he's being asked these questions in interviews and giving his honest view on it, obviously people will disagree but calling him an ***** for being honest is stupid.

    I don't think you understand what controversial means, having different views isn't controversial it's when the different views cause dispute. i.e. I could have a different opinion than you about taxes that wouldn't make either opinion controversial but if I say abortion should be illegal that would be controversial as there is an amount of debate about the issue.

    Seriously, every one of us has to take a GOOD long look in the mirror, that's where it ALL starts.

    Dave Mustaine is an a**hole. He backs Rick Santorum, a man who has INTOLERANT views towards gays and a womans right to choose an abortion. In this day and age in your country its extremely ignorant to back ideas like repealing "don't ask, don't tell" and outlawing abortion rights. Rick Santorum and every other Republican right now are right wing, extremist christian fundamentalist, most of them also believe in elevating the war in the Middle East and choosing conflict with Iran. Anyone who supports these a**holes are ill informed and have very skewed views on "freedom" Most of them don't believe in taxing the Rich even more, so of course Dave likes them...

    It's hard to take someone seriously when they're telling someone to shut their mouth, while also running theirs.

    Wait... Are you trying to tell me that a man who has spent the entirety of his adult life dressed like a monster is looking for attention? Something doesn't add up...

    President Obama's mother was an American citizen. Even though he was born in Hawaii, it doesn't matter if he was born in Antarctica, Australia or the moon, he'd still be an American citizen. During the '90s, the Gingrich-led Republicans claimed Clinton was a socialist as well, but they never questioned his birthplace. There is a very obvious and abhorrent racial component to the GOP/birther agenda toward President Obama. One that's rooted in the GOP's infamous Southern Strategy of using fearful propaganda to pull the strings of easily-riled and ill-informed poor white folks and lead them to the ballot boxes to vote against their own best interests. "It's just a little bit of history repeating..."

    So we are supposed to take "Oderus Urungus" seriously? He is the logical, stand up citizen?

    As opposed to what? Democrats? Green Party? Socialists? Independants? Show me one person talking about political things that doesn't have a steady stream of BS coming from their mouths.

    Oderus probably took it too far, but should anyone on this website be surprised? He's in GWAR. And oh yeah, just wanted to say the name: Stroumboulopoulos

    Well I disagree with you thinking that someone will disagree with him today. But I disagree to agree, of course.

Maybe you should read a book, or at least a newspaper/magazine article, before you try and shoot down what someone else has to say. Please elaborate, dear historian. I can tell from your post that you are obviously well read.
    Nazis and the crusades are a good place to start.

    Some people here obviously have never seen any of Gwars other interviews or comments. They are always over the top and exaggerated, it's their schtick, and enough people like it so they keep doing it. Although he may be serious in his intent, the comments are obviously meant to be semi humorous.

What does Urungus know anyway...hes like a dumb kid feeling tough cuz hes wearing a monster costume..freakin bozo
    I'll admit Mustaine is a better guitarist than me and a better singer, but based on what he's been saying I must be smarter than him.

    Yeah the best way to counter Mustaine's views on gay marriage amongst other things is with homophobic insults... I truly hope this idiot is trying to be ironic

    I love GWAR, they put on the funniest, most brutal show ever! They always have someone to pick on and make an example of. Its how it always has been, the people who are seriously offended obviously don't know what GWAR is about, or any of the things they've done in the past because this is really rather minuscule. I mean, they made fun of their own dead guitar player. .

    Absolutely. They are the American Taliban. It's the duty of every American citizen that actually cherishes freedom to keep these regressive theocrats out of power, from the local level all the way to the legislative, judicial and executive branches of the U.S. government.

    So basically this reads, "I'm in a very shitty band and no one gives a shit about me, so I'm going to trash talk real musicians/people who are actually talented because I have nothing better to do with my time."

    If I cared to hear what Gwar says, I'd visit the local VFW where they will be performing.
