I fucking love Megadeth. Saw them live in Cleveland on the American Carnage Tour along with Testament and Slayer. And to answer the question...Yes, He was in Metallica.

Hey not cool.  Don't make Metallica jokes about Mustaine.

Posted by Jost1

Also Megadeth is a better band.  I don't see even this as a topic for debate.

Posted by Mordi

Dave Mustaine is awesome.

Posted by lyricalmastermind

I'm not sure if they expect us to take this game seriously or not

Agreed. In the 80's and 90's they were pretty equal, but Megadeth definitely makes better music than Metallica nowadays.

My friend will enjoy this, I'm sure of it.

Man, those new characters look awesome.

That song is definitely going to kick my ass. Guess I better start limbering up my fingers now.

Still don't understand people hating on this game. Grant it it's the same basic elements every time, but the formula has suited me well up until now and I don't see that changing anytime soon...Well, maybe it would if that game with the real guitar turns out to be any good.

Megadeth!

Hope I can just download the song so I won't have to play the game for some sweet Mustaine-action.

Mustaine got kicked out of Metallica because he drunk too much; way more than the other guys, and was an overall liability to the band.  
Even though he's successful with Megadeth, there doesn't go by a day that he does not regret that. 
The 'Some Kind Of Monster' documentary gives a little more insight into this issue. 
 
About GH... I never liked these kind of games really. 
If you want to learn to play the guitar (or any other instrument for that matter), pick up a real guitar and start practicing the beJesus out of it!

Took me a few seconds to realise that he wasn't a Wookie when I saw the thumbnail image for this video.

Megadeth!
Posted by DukeTogo

Getting kicked out of Metallica was the best thing that could have happened to him.  He made his own band that was much more about reality and our place in it than the fantasy that Metallica was more about at the time.  Both great bands that ended up going in opposite directions, but still survived the metal crash of the 90s - although Megadeth kept it's cred as a metal band while Metallica is sad shadow of its former self.

Posted by CHIEFMEGADETH666

He was in metallica but thank god they kicked him out and made a band a 1000times better then metallica!!!!
The fact they used a bunch of hes songs on kill em all and ride the lightning,Not one album but 2 albums shows how great he was...Megadeth are still Amazing! and metallica have gone down hill,i dont even know what to call there type of metal anymore...its just awful! 
metallica went so commercial that they just lost there way...they are so not thrash metal,and they must be tone deth with the detuned music they're coming out with.
Lars sounds like hes using a kids drumkit,they should of kicked out lars when they where going too all them 
years ago

The art style just makes me want to puke. Terrible, terrible style. Rock Band is much more up my alley.
 
Also, yeah, Dave Mustaine is a bad-ass, though a little strange in some ways. Megadeth is some true metal shit.
 
But it's okay. Rock Band has, last time I checked, 18 songs by Megadeth. And I own all of them (17 DLC, 1 on RB2).  http://www.rbdlc.com/showartist.php?artist=Megadeth

Ok but the fact he came on that doco and opened up to them,and for them to spit in hes face when Dave said"can you not put that in your doco"but they said fuck you dave and put it in the doco anyway.Cause they new people like me would go watch it just cause i saw Dave in the trailer...
Posted by Sedasys

I seem to be the only person who's actually looking forward to this game.

Edited by Tennou486

I can't wait to start learning this on a REAL guitar.

That was a big part of it, but another reason he got kicked out, according to a later Hetfield interview, was the clash of headstrong personalities.  James and Lars were already kind of butting heads with wanting to be in control, and adding Dave's as a third made it even worse.  So the incidents with Dave were a reason for them to lessen the stress of the band as well. 
Also, Megadeth, my favorite band of all time, was a direct result.  I couldn't be more happy with the outcome, so I don't really care about the politics of who was "in the right."
Posted by HarrySound

First we had Brutal Legend now we have Bitter Legend. 
Bitter as he may be, Mustaine is hostoric! 
Youth and countdown are amazing albums. 
O and cryptic :)

This. Actually, the only reason I clicked the link was to point this out. I don't care about Guitar Hero, but AFAICS it's receiving the classic Activision treatment of being squeezed for every last bit. Ask Tony Hawk how that works.
Posted by NowSayPillow

 Megadeth may be one of my all time favorite bands but I still wouldn't touch this game with a ten foot pole.

Posted by Everyones_A_Critic

If the track list wasn't so God damn bland I would be first in line for this. Unfortunately "Burning for You" and "Holy Wars" just aren't enough for $60. DJ Hero 2 on the other hand....well, that game looks fuckin incredible!

Posted by Myrmidon

I hate Dave Mustaine so much.

Posted by bjorno

i like dave but i dont like guitar hero
not that you cared!!!

Seriously, the caption for this vid is a blow below the belt.

Posted by TheGreatGuero

A customer that came into my work told me he thinks I totally look like Dave Mustaine. I don't think it's true, and have never heard it before, but I think it's worth mentioning. I've also heard I look like Kurt Cobain, and Lionel Richie.

Posted by Lind_L_Taylor

Megadeth was incredible. It was a true tragedy when he sustained that car injury that kept
them from playing/touring for several years.  Wonder if they've put out any new albums or
it was over for good after the accident.
 
All in all, I'd rather see a new Megadeth album than another Guitar Hero game.  Try as I
might, I'm just not interested in those silly toy guitars for a game when I can play one of
my 2 real guitars instead & actually learn something while bringing satisfaction in the
performance & listening.

@GunnBjorn:

interestingy enough he said he takes back everything he said in the documentary. seems like he did it as sort of a favor to maek the dvd story good. he's got several songs that adress the issue ( see mechanix, holier than thou, kill the king, king nothing, something i'm not, die dead enough, back in the day) also his book will hopefully enlighten us.

@Lind_L_Taylor:
lol duder there have been 3. and each one is the best metal ive heard in a while. The system has failed (2004) United abominations (2007) and Endgame (2009). Alot of it was actually inspired by games...well the war and violence in the settings anyway. he had to totally relearn guitar though his hand had forgottenhow to play.  he says god came to him or something or other and his and miraculously was functioning again after he believed. read it in the paper. good man.

Oh, Dave. What are you doing with yourself? There are already enough bands writing generic filler metal :(

RIP Cliff Burton
 
 
..wait, what are we talking about again?

As far as gameplay... seems just like the last few thousand games they made.

While Metallica used to be an overall superior band, and their classic albums were more, shall I say, solid than Megadeth's, they have aged much, much worse. Megadeth's three latest records are at the very least listenable, while Metallica's are not.
