Dave Mustaine Vs. Roadrunner Records

Recommended Posts

Seems that Dave Mustaine is a little annoyed with his current label (RoadRunner Records) over what he feels is their mis-handling of the new Megadeth album, ENDGAME (which debuted in the Billboard top 10 four weeks ago but is now somewhere around #105 and is dropping like a rock...) ... these are some rants he's posted about it on the Megadeth forum....

 

On the next single from the record:

 

if they can fuck it up, they will.

 

they already made us cut out my solo and Chris' second solo so the song will be short enough for radio.

 

i don't think if they had clout that i would have to do this.

 

On their current relationship with Roadrunner:

 

Droogies!

 

I don't know what to say.

 

How a record company could be presented with a Worldwide critically

acclaimed record, and that they can let it plummet down the charts in

just four weeks into the hundreds, is inexplicable.

 

I knew I shouldn't have done this. Why didn't I trust myself?

 

I regret a lot of things in my life, but this is the most regretable.

 

A very disgusted Megaman.

 

you have no idea how i feel, i can't put it into words or i imagine the FBI would be paying me a visit.

 

all i can do is not to give them another record, and sadly that means no more music for any of us due to the US label.

 

I can't believe that the owner of this label is this out of touch with his label in the states, and that doesn't even touch the tip of the iceberg.

 

the president of the record still has not called me to congradulate me on ENDGAME or our high chart debut.

 

but then again, this is the same person that came out last month to threaten my manager that if i don't resign with them, that they are going to stop selling ENDGAME.

 

well, it appears they have stopped selling it.

 

I am so sorry Droogies, I have made a terrible mistake signing with Roadrunner, and I am sorry.

 

i would suggest if you want the record, get it before the completely stop even manufacturing it.

 

WHERE THE FUCK IS THE HEADS OF WARNER BROTHERS WHEN YOU NEED THEM???

 

On the lack of promotion for ENDGAME thus far:

 

Roadrunner is doing this around the world.

 

it is happening in Japan too. the dunce from the label put up Slipknot

posters in the booth at Loud Park and there were just a few ENDGAME

posters, and i actually had to tell my tour manager to go tell him to

try to be a label just for a week, until we leave, and then they can go

back to fucking us over every-whcih-way they can come up with.

 

I have nothing against Slipknot, but for Smurf's sake, how stupid does

someone have to be to go to a festival, where your act is one of the

top bands on the bill, and PROMOTE ANOTHER BAND THAT DOESN'T NEED MY

HELP!

 

I am disgusted, and never in my almost thrity years have i ever seen such incompitence.

 

Yikes! :unsure: This looks like a situation to watch!!

Dave has been going off on everyone lately.

I almost think he's back on drugs or something considering his rants about this and his fight with that Norwegian Journalist about the Metallica questions. I'm a big Dave/Deth fan but damn all of his constant bitching and wining lately is really getting on my nerves. But then again if the label is really doing these things what was the point in signing Megadeth.

Why is he comparing the promotion for SLIPKNOT with the promotion for "Endgame"? Regardless of the fact that us old-school fans prefer the 'Deth, if you're a record label interested in profits then of course you're going to promote the 10th anniversary of a huge-selling band rather than the latest album in the dwindling career of a old-school band. Mustaine needs to remember that he hasn't made a good album since 1992, so to suddenly release an above-average disc and expect the record labels to put his face on billboards/magazines everywhere is ridiculous. He is a fuckwit.

As much as I like Endgame I don't think it's as good as United Abominations.

I like "Endgame" too, but no-one has given this album more hype than Dave himself. Most reviews have been around the 8/10 mark - which is pretty fair IMO. The new SLAYER album batters "Endgame" into the dust.

    • Defunding the cops was never the answer....there are a few cities where they are trying to make changes, such as adding an option to the 911 emergency number where you can choose 'a mental health issue' option which sends people (not cops) who are trained to deal with the situation....which frees cops up to do the work that they are trained for....
    • Yeah, that's why the entire BLM "Defund the police" movement was (and is) so fucking idiotic. The police need more assistance, resources, and training, not less.
    • The media and politicians are pro-police because the vast majority of the people they serve are pro-police and until that changes you will not see either group turn against the police....which is how it should be, the more difficult we make the job of policing, the harder it will be to get people to do the job so even if you are upset with how things are being done during the pandemic, maybe you should give the cops a little bit of understanding...
    • Pretty unlikely to get many fires this year with La Nina
    • I don't know how "firefighters" are defined or utilized in Australia vs. here in the USA, but presumably they are included because as first responders they may be called upon to rescue or render medical attention to people, and you wouldn't want the first responders to be giving Covid to them, or worse having a situation where either the recipient is forced into a position of declining medical assistance or the firefighters reluctant to render it. I actually agree with the mandatory vaccination policy in this case. 
    • In case anyone might have forgotten what a fucken dump Australia is right now, in a country that was ravaged by bushfires two years ago, volunteer firefighters are now required to be vaccinated to be able to provide their service. Many will not, so in an occupation where we were flying in firefighters from the US and Canada etc. at the peak of our issues to help out, we are standing volunteers down because they won't get vaccinated. Because christ almighty knows, that the last thing we want is for firefighters to be giving the fires they fight covid-19.  https://thewest.com.au/news/coronavirus/volunteer-fire-and-rescue-service-members-included-in-mandatory-vaccination-mandate-c-4564212 That story only covers WA, but I saw an interview today with a guy from NSW and as far as I understand it's a country-wide requirement?  I honestly just don't have the words to describe my thoughts on matters like this. Are we actually the dumbest fucking country on planet earth, or is shit like this happening in other countries?  Imagine honestly trying to excuse actions like this if we had fires like we did a couple of years ago and able-bodied, willing and experienced firefighters were sitting at home watching houses burn on TV because their stupid fucking cunt government thought that forcing a pointless needle into their arm was more important than the work these people do. Unbe-fucking-lievable.  
    • Here's my ability to read and interpret information. You say that you no longer teach your kids to respect police. You seem open in your statement "Fuck the pigs" You may say that in front of them. If you don't I'm sure they will pick up on it. Kids learn from their parents. I'm happy with my interpretation. It's sad that people can generalise so vigorously. I would put forward that a MASSIVE percentage of cops are good, if not great cops. we're looking at only a very few cops here who overstep and gain a lot of press. I know 3 people who have applied for the force. One got in, one didn't, one is in the process now. Their requirements are extremely high, and not adhering to just one part of the process 100% equals a fail. In the case of the person who didn't get in, she got through all the psych, fitness, etc, but didn't come across as confident enough in a phone interview, so that was it. Cops are legends.
