TMS Classic: Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine Takes Audience Mega-Questions

The thrash master sounds off on the Sex Pistols, his dream collaborator, and Megadeth's place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

From Season 4 of That Metal Show, check out Megadeth madman Dave Mustaine taking questions from the audience and revealing the ins and outs of being a heavy metal mega-star.

Dave sounds off on how jamming with the Sex Pistols’ Steve Jones involved “a hundred dollars for suction,” Johnny Rotten’s judgment of the vocals on Megadeth’s “Anarchy in the UK” cover, and the name of the one artist, living or dead, who Mustaine would most love to collaborate with musically.

TMS co-hosts Eddie Trunk and Don Jamieson have a great time, and Jim Florentine gets up to pose the most important question of all: “Does Megadeth belong in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?”

How does Dave answer? Watch the clip. Also check out our previous TMS treasures and come back every day in November for a fresh raid of the show’s headbanging video vaults—including tomorrow!
