The Megadeth Album for Which Dave Mustaine Wants to Be Remembered is…
Just kidding. It’s Dystopia!
Mustaine tells Metal Hammer:
“In terms of pushing my playing and songwriting, and the re-acquaintance of David Ellefson and myself, and with Kiko being such an un-fucking-believable guitar player, I would have to pick ‘Dystopia’ [as the Megadeth album for which I want to be remembered] at this point. But now Dirk Verbeuren’s in the band, I’m really looking forward to what’s next. When we get into the rehearsal room, warming up for the shows, and we hear Dirk playing some blast beats, I’m questioning what Megadeth is going to sound like when we make the next record and we have those skull-numbing beats going on, it’s gonna push my playing to otherworldly limits. I’m excited because I can do the fast metal stuff, but having the chops and musical depth that Kiko has and with Ellefson holding down the fort, I’m really looking forward to the next record. I started thinking about it the day we left the studio after making ‘Dystopia.’ That’s just how I’m wired.”
It’s understandable that, as an artist, the work of which Mustaine is most proud is his most recent. Of course, we all know that’s not how history works, and it’s very unlikely that Mustaine will be remembered for Dystopia.
He’ll much more likely be remembered for his brief tenure in Metallica.

On a semi-related note, everyone remember that Dave Mustaine implied that the next Megadeth album will have blast beats on it so we can all bust his balls when the next Megadeth album has no blast beats on it.
