Today in Dave Mustaine Dumbassery


VH1 recently asked Dave Mustaine, “Why do you think metal continually doesn’t get the respect it deserves?” Here was his response:

“You’ve got to look at a lot the participants in it. To their own demise, a lot of heavy metal performers act stupid. You know, ‘Hey bro, duh.’ It doesn’t further our cause any. If you want to be treated intelligently, then act intelligent.”

In case you’ve forgotten, here’s some more sage advice Mr. Mustaine has offered over the course of just the past couple of years:

“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?”

“I don’t believe in evolution, I believe in creation, so science only goes so far with me.”

“I have a lot of questions about [Obama], but certainly not where he was born. I know he was born somewhere else than America. . . I’m not calling a question to it, I just… How come he was invisible until he became whatever he was in Illinois?”

“Back in my country, my president is trying to pass a gun ban so he’s staging all of these murders. The ‘Fast and Furious’ thing down at the border. And Aurora, Colorado, all the people that were killed there. And now, the beautiful people at the Sikh temple… I don’t know where I’m going to live if America keeps going the way it’s going because it looks like it’s turning into Nazi America.”

“When you go home tonight, I want you to do me a favor, I want you to look up online the word ‘secede,’ because right now, right now, there are 47 states in the United States of America that wanna secede from the United States of America… Did you hear that the people that make Twinkies today are going out of business after 82 years? Hostess. No more Twinkies!”

On whether or not he supports gay marriage:

“Well, since I’m not gay, the answer to that would be no.”

On having a kidney stone:

“[The doctors] gave me an IV, and analgesic, and an anti-inflammatory injection… all of my friends were praying for me… and I truly believe it was the prayer that got that stone out of me.”

On chemtrails, which are not a real thing:

“Shame on the pilots spraying the grid lines in the once beautiful skies of San Diego.”

If you want to be treated intelligently, then act intelligent. Yup yup.
