Megadeth Respond to Super Collider Controversy: 'Half These Little Farts Wouldn't Say This to My Face'
Dave Mustaine and David Ellefson have been responding to the controversy surrounding the band's latest album, "Super Collider," and criticisms that the record wasn't metal enough. Speaking to WikiMetal, Ellefson noted that the record still features classic Megadeth songs: "It's definitely been one of our more controversial records. Traditionally you would lead a Megadeth record with a track like 'Kingmaker,' which is heavy, which is very traditional. I think a lot of the hard thrash fans kind of went 'Oh my god, what happened to Megadeth, they're turning into a pop band' ... but you listen to the album, and there's 'Kingmaker,' 'Dancing in the Rain,' 'Built for War,' 'Burn,' these are songs that are classic Megadeth riffs and classic Megadeth songs." Mustaine meanwhile, has told Brave Words that it is "a handful of trolls" that have a problem with the record: "Our real fan-base respect what we do, they know that Megadeth isn't limited to just thrash nomenclature. We've never fit within those parameters, and anybody that has ever asked us what our music is like I've always said we're just Megadeth. Like a jazz, classical, punk-influenced band that plays all different kinds of songs. We're the guys that wrote 'Black Friday,' but were different. We're not like AC/DC, we're not like Motorhead, our songs aren't really similar, straight-forward rock songs. It's straight-forward metal. Some people like 'em, some people don't, but I think with the internet, you can have a guy with a hundred email accounts talking smack on these bottom-feeder websites. People read that and think 'this guy is real' and he's not real, there's two or three people that their whole campaign is to talk sh-t about everybody. Not just Dave Mustaine, not just Megadeth, they hate everything. Half these little farts wouldn't say this to my face cuz they'd piss their pants if they stood in front of me."
