Megadeth Lead Singer Endorses Rick Santorum

NewsFeed

Update, 2/16 11:06 AM:Mustaine sent out a press release noting that although he supports Santorum, the endorsement isn’t official. “What I did say was that I hope to see a Republican in the White House.  I’ve seen good qualities in all the candidates but by no means have made my choice yet.” See the original report below.

Conservative presidential candidate Rick Santorum has received an endorsement from an unlikely source: Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine.

A pioneer of the American thrash metal, Mustaine was famously expelled from Metallica in 1983. He went on to form Megadeth, which rose to international fame along with Metallica, Slayer and Anthrax in the “Big Four of Thrash.” While many wouldn’t equate thrash metal with politics, from music censorship (“Hook In Mouth”) to the environment (“Countdown to Extinction”) to the effectiveness of the United Nations (“United Abominations”), Mustaine has always injected political themes into his songs.
