Dave Mustaine Called Out a Pair of Drunk Hecklers By Saying They’re What Happens “When Cousins F*ck”


During a recent show in Stockholm, Sweden, Megadeth frontman and ex-Metallica member Dave Mustaine had enough. Apparently a pair of concertgoers were really drunk and trying to heckle the hell out of the 61 year-old shredder. And while he may be advancing in age, ol’ Dave can still fight back.

In between songs, Mustaine was filmed playfully giving the hecklers the finger before telling them to shut up in an increasingly annoyed tone. Eventually, he warns that if they keep it up, he’ll have them escorted out of the venue. That seems to have calmed things down, but Mustaine wasn’t done. That’s when he dropped a bomb on ’em:

“See, this is what happens when cousins fuck.”


Oh snap. And then to add to the level of “don’t give a fuck,” Mustaine got back to work and flew into “Holy Wars…The Punishment Due.” Talk about putting an exclamation point on a big ol’ fuck you.

Though the interaction was originally posted on the Megadeth subreddit, someone closer to the person in question uploaded their point of view on YouTube, which you can watch below. Good on Mustaine. After all, if you’re not having a good time we all now know he’d be okay with you throwing shit at him.

If you want to get a chance to see Megadeth live and possibly get Mustaine to make fun of your lineage, be sure to check out the European dates they’ve got going right now. You can find those below the video.
