My interview with Megadeth last week didn't go too well. The honorable thing to do would be to admit that I was in the wrong and should have been better prepared. Or I could spell out a number of reasons why I'm not a total unprofessional screwup, therefore justifying myself to an audience that largely doesn't care about who I am anyway.

Or I could do something fun and petty.

With all of that in mind, I give you six reasons why Metallica is actually, in fact, better than Megadeth.

6. Dave Mustaine refuses to discuss whether he has found the Abyss Lord.

My friend Charlie Johnson (who demanded to be credited as a "Minneapolis heavy-metal legend" in order to release this story) told me about an encounter he had with Dave Mustaine at an in-store signing at a Best Buy in a city called Coon Rapids, Minnesota. This is that story:

"I asked him about hunting the Abyss Lord, from the song 'Five Magics.' I asked him if he ever found said Abyss Lord, because I had also been hunting him. He got super pissed. He said, 'Yeah man, whatever, go look for new jokes,' or something to that effect. He got really pissed when I played up that I wasn't joking. Then my friend Maria got super hyped up and screamed about how much she loved the Black album, and he got really bummed."

5. Dave Mustaine Calls People "Faggot" Onstage

And some other terms pretty demeaning to women. C'mon, man.

This must be the weakest article I've read in a very long time. The arguments are so weak and so thin, that you gotta ask yourself if the author has ever heard the music of the two gruops ever in his life, because he does not use their musical back ground in his weak reasoning. No valid points here, only trash.

6 Reasons why ANY journalist is better than Drew Ailes. 

6   Ailes works for the Village Voice instead of a good periodical.

5    Ailes writes an article attacking everything about Megadeth except the music of Megadeth, which is so good that all other criticism is ineffectual.

4  Ailes writes no better than a 13 year old ( Reference his other article on Megadeth)

3  Ailes fails to mention the Motorhead loves Megadeth and played with them in the Gigatour concert series.

2  Ailes cannot get over the ginormous success of his conservative Uncle Roger.

1   Ailes has a conflict of interest since he and Bob Rock (Metallica producer) are secret lovers.

Metallica blows goats for quarters ! They sold out and went soft commercial metal. Megadeth stayed true to who they are. Megadeth over metallica anyday !

Mustaine and Cliff made who Metallica was. Since garage days was released its been nothing but down hill with a few good songs here and there. F'ing Whiney sell outs. They will never be as good as Megadeth. Even when Mustaine is sober, his songs are better.
