Mustaine's Vision With Megadeth: Destroy Metallica

When asked by a fan on Twitter what his measure of success and vision was when starting Megadeth, he answered:

“My measure of success was if I ate that day or not, and my vision was destroy @Metallica and stop living in a van. Good thing I got over my animosity for leaving the band. I’m glad we reconciled… where’s the Big 4 shows???””

Mustaine was ejected from Metallica in the early 80s for his drug abuse. Mustaine and Metallica reconciled back in 2004.

King 810’s Video "Killem All" Banned By YouTube

King 810‘s music video for their track “Killem All” taken from their 2014 album “Memoirs Of A Murderer” was banned from YouTube after being determined to be “hate speech”. King 810‘s vocalist David Gunn took to Instagram to comment on the matter:

“Logged into @youtube this morning to this tragedy. Youtube claiming to encourage free speech but removing content they arbitrarily pin as “hate speech.” This is music and artistic expression. The song and video are social commentary. Youtube you would not even exist as a company if they removed all things anyone may consider “hate speech.”

We as a people have made this a very large very rich company. I understand this is a for profit company with a policy and an agenda but its a bit dangerous when giants like Youtube and @google censor information and art only to expose us to cherry picked pieces consistent with their own views. Especially when we rely on them from day to day. This is something people should be aware and concerned about. – @dkgunn”
