Dave Mustaine has had a relatively good year in terms of no bad PR. Looking back at our coverage of his lunacy, the only truly mind-boggling thing that he said this year was that he did not believe in evolution. Of course, there was that whole time last year when he said he wanted to secede from America and how he hates Obama, but Dave just wants to make one thing clear…
Dave Mustaine is not a republican!
In a new interview with OC Weekly, Mustaine was asked about how political current events affect his lyrics, and he wanted to set the record straight:
Well given the mercurial headlines that are showing up now every single day, whether it's our government or our interactions with other governments, there's a lot of crazy stuff going on right now all over the world. If I chose to go down that path, I have a lot I could say. But at the end of the day, I am very optimistic. I can turn the worst situation into something good. I think a lot of people misinterpret why I even say anything when it comes to this. I's not about what's wrong with stuff, I want stuff to be right, and I'm willing to help make things right. That's why I did the DNC for MTV. But you have these fools saying I'm Republican, which is wrong. I'm an Independent person, I voted for both Democrats and Republican in the past. The point is, I vote.
We're glad you cleared that up for us, Dave!
