Dave Mustaine, the frontman and guitarist of Megadeth, as well as one of the founding members of Metallica, declared to a New Jersey concert audience “we have the power” to resist the “tyranny” Americans are living under right now.
“Is there anybody here besides me who’s having a great f**king time?” Mustaine asked the crowd to which they responded with an affirmative roar.
“But I just wanna tell you how great it is — look around you guys, look to your right, look to your left, and look how wonderful this is,” the lead singer continued.
“We’re all here together, we’re not in fucking bags, you know? We’re not freaking out, and we’re not yelling at people: ‘Where’s your f**king mask?’”
“Where’s your mask, you loud cow?” Mustaine asked sarcastically, as the crowd began to shout, “USA! USA! USA!” and “F**k Joe Biden!”
Mustaine said “It starts with this kind of sensation that we feel right now, where we feel together, we feel like there’s strength in numbers. We feel we are invincible. People will not be able to stop us.”
“See, the thing right now that’s going on, is tyranny,” he added.
“This is called tyranny. Look it up when you get home. And tyranny isn’t only in government. Tyranny right now is in the schools, and tyranny is in the medical business,” he continued.
“We have the power, especially us — heavy metal fans — we have the power to change things,” Mustaine told his fans.
“If you look at what happened in the Middle East right now — I said it a long time ago with this next song,” he added, before playing Megadeth’s “Holy Wars,” which appears to be a comment on the military-industrial complex.
