Megadeth is a Heavy Metal band formed in 1983. When their frontman Dave Mustaine was kicked from Metallica he decided to form Megadeth in response. Since then they are rival bands. Dave Mustaine is the frontman, lead singer, co-lead guitarist and the songwriter of the band. Lyrical themes were very Liberal, until shit hit the fan in 2002. In 2002 Dave has injured his left arm and doctors told him he will never be able to play again. However, his arm was healed and he retrained it so he could play the way he used to. He considered that a miracle, so he became... a Christian. That made his views more right wing than they used to be, however he did not become a Conservative but a moderate. He voted for Bush, but he also later said in an interview that was one of the biggest mistakes in his life.
