Dave Mustaine Supports Rick Santorum For President

In a recent interview, Megadeth singer Dave Mustaine has thrown his support behind Rick Santorum for President. Why? — Because clearly only the best of the best of the best have the moral fiber needed to suspend a campaign for one day to be at their sick infant daughter’s side. As much as I love Megadeth’s music and have been a fan for years, the inanity of this weird endorsement just kills me.

Mustaine said, “Earlier in the election, I was completely oblivious as to who Rick Santorum was, but when the dude went home to be with his daughter when she was sick, that was very commendable.”

Using that logic, any Tom, Dick or Harry can be President if only he is a good parent. Isn’t that what all good parents do when their children are sick? What kind of douche would tell their kid, “Hey, I’m trying to campaign here! Suck it up!”?

The singer continued, “You know, I think Santorum has some presidential qualities, and I’m hoping that if it does come down to it, we’ll see a Republican in the White House…and that it’s Rick Santorum.”

Why are heavy metal singers endorsing political candidates publicly?

Activision rapes Kurt Cobain’s image

Kurt Cobain in Guitar Hero 5Activision has put Kurt Cobain in some rather unsightly poses in “Guitar Hero 5″ and he looks pretty silly. Ever thought Kurt would be jamming out to “You Give Love A Bad Name” by Bon Jovi? How about rapping along to Public Enemy’s “Bring The Noise”? Kurt was also seen getting up close to sing Megadeth’s “Sweating Bullets”. While all are pretty decent songs, should Kurt’s image be used like this?

The video game makers have really done a number on Kurt and he is probably turning over in his grave as I write this.

This would be something that I would normally blame Courtney Love for. She’s sold him out before, so this wouldn’t be the first time. Continue reading
