Dave locks and loads his gargantuan tank in 'The Right To Go Insane'!

Megadeth have released the video for ‘The Right To Go Insane‘, their newest single off their latest album ‘Endgame’.

The video was released via the band’s record company website, Roadrunner Records, today and features nothing less than lead singer/guitarist Dave Mustaine driving a goddamn TANK through the streets.

That’s right, a tank. Carnage ensues in what is truly an insane video, but one based on entirely true events.

Last week the music blogging site Noisecreep had a sneak-peek on the latest video and outlined the events behind the video’s storyline:

On May 17, 1995, a U.S. Army veteran and unemployed plumber in San Diego, Shawn Timothy Nelson, snapped and stole an M60 Patton tank from a nearby National Guard Armory.

He drove down the highway, crushing cars, fire hydrants and an RV before he was stopped and killed by police.

The video follows the real-life events, featuring Dave Mustaine going crazy before stealing a military tank and running riot on the streets of California. In fact, the video even comes complete with a warning before the insanity begins:


The album, Endgame, is out now and available to buy online pretty cheap!


Greatest metal album of all time? Comment with your thoughts!

‘Rust In Peace’, Megadeth’s sensational and undoubtedly most famous record in their repertoire, has been award the title of ‘Greatest Metal Album of All Time’ over at The BNR Metal Pages website.

The site, a fan-run site which has been an online bible of heavy metal information since 1995, held a tournament-style poll which pit an array of heavy metal albums in one-to-one battles until all but two were eliminated for the final voting showdown.

Rust In Peace fought off such metal staples as Black Sabbath’s ‘Heaven And Hell‘ and Slayer’s ‘Reign In Blood‘ to face, in an almost comedic final choice, Metallica’s infamous ‘Master of Puppets‘.

Seems like Dave Mustaine can’t even escape his rivalry with Metallica in the polls…

In what was almost certainly a close call, and might be a controversial choice outside of the BNR community, Rust In Piece came out on top. While (the track) Master of Puppets is one of the most famous metal tracks of all time, does that make it better?

I think not. Rust In Piece deservedly gained its title in this poll, given that the album is a heavier, more relentless effort than MoP and just overall the more memorable metal album. Metallica fans can shoot me down all they like. This is simply my retort:

Rust in peace…
