Dave Mustaine Clears Up Megadeth Rumors

Dave Mustaine from Megadeth had this to say about the band's Greatest Hits album:

I wanted to clear up recurring questions about the Greatest Hits record.

1) It is supposed to come out this summer, in June, they say.

2) It will have 17 songs on it.

3) There will be a special edition of it with bonuses.

4) The songs are based on being EMI Publishing songs NOT Capitol or Sanctuary songs. This Greatest Hits record is being made by EMI; not Capitol.

5) The songs are songs YOU voted for.

6) 'Kill the King' and 'Dread and the Fugitive Mind' were on 'Capitol Punishment' and since 'Capitol Punishment' is out of print. I (with a capital frigging 'I') wanted 'Kill the King' on there. That was MY vote! 'Dread' may appear on a Sanctuary record, but it belongs to Capitol too.

7) 'Mechanix' is not 'The Four Horsemen'; 'The Four Horsemen' is 'Mechanix'. Get over it. Buy a calendar, learn to count, have a coke and a smile, and ST*U

8) 'Kick the Chair' was not possible for business reasons that you just don’t need to know. Saying, 'this is no good because 'Kick the Chair' is not on it,' is quite revealing of one's ignorance.

9) Since this is finished, we are now focusing on the DVD.
