Megadeth mastermind Dave Mustaine spoke in an interview with Full Metal Jackie and explained that will he write political lyrics for Megadeth’s upcoming album. He said:
“It became clear to me several years ago that when you start talking about politics, you immediately divide your audience in half.
What in the beginning was quite tongue-in-cheek, kind of one-liner stuff started to, unfortunately, define me as a songwriter, and now people think that I’m a political songwriter, which I’m not.
We write about all kinds of different things. But looking at the landscape right now, these are really, really crazy… Look at the natural disasters, everything that’s going on, the inability for anyone just about anywhere to get along.
It makes you wonder, ‘How did we become so devolved?’ It’s like ‘The Decline of Western Civilization Part III’.”
