Folk musician Robert Rolf Fedderson apparently penned this three-minute depression fest, “Dave’s Lament” (off Fedderson’s aptly titled new record, American Loser) from the imagined perspective of Dave Mustaine. Apparently, Fedderson got to know Mustaine when his then band, Loudmouth, toured with Megadeth back in the late 90’s. Fedderson wrote the song, which tells the story of one of messiest heavy metal partings in history, and how it might have made Dave feel. And, as you might well imagine, it’s fucking hilarious. I give you exhibit A – a few lines from Dave’s Lament…
“I’m a good writer / I play great guitar / But I can’t get over how farther they’ve gone / I’m staying sober / And trying real hard / But I can’t jump over this fence in my yard”
Oh boy. I never thought I’d say this, but even Dave Mustaine doesn’t deserve this. And the chorus isn’t helping Mustaine’s head banging street cred either…
“All of the success goes to Metallica / All of the accolades go to Metallica / All of the mansions and all of the money / And all of the good things and skies that are sunny”
So there you have it. If you need a few laughs today, listen to Dave’s Lament right here. Besides, we all know the real reason Dave got kicked out of Metallica…

Well, this is it! The last CB.com post of 2014. I’m sure I might post something random in a drunken haze over the next week or so, but who knows.
In the meantime, if you missed the 178th episode of the Movies About Girls podcast (aka – our endless obsession with Maria Ford), click here to listen in on all the good times that we had. There’s also a new, very special Christmas Down Under podcast that really brought the laffs, as well as a new Advanced Demonolgy starring Rape Goat.
I’ve also got a review of a new up-and-coming German black metal band, Mayak, and their completely bad-ass four song EP, over at Destroy the Brain. You can also listen to the entire thing on their Bandcamp page. Loudly, of course.
Lastly, I want to say thank to all of you who keep coming back, that leave comments and that help spread the word about the little metal blog that could. Balls to you all, man.
And now, here’s a bunch of metal things that happened last week. See you in 2014!
All I want for Christmas are these Necro-Zombie Flesh shoes! WOW
I really hate to be posting about verbal diarrhea that keeps flowing out of the mouth of Dave Mustaine, but Mustaine’s latest delusion-laden comments that President Obama “staged” the mass shootings in Colorado, and the Sikh temple in Wisconson in an effort to pass a “gun ban” in the US, even have me shaking my heavy metal head in shame. In case you’ve been living in a cave for the last week (like me), here’s what Mustaine had to say during a Megadeth performance in Singapore earlier this week:
“Back in my country, my president … he’s trying to pass a gun ban, so he’s staging all of these murders … Aurora, Colorado, all the people that were killed there… and now the beautiful people at the Sikh temple. … I don’t know where I’m gonna live if America keeps going the way it’s going.”
Now it seems that while back-peddling a bit with Alex Jones (groan), Mustaine said he could have been more “eloquent” when he accused the President of being a party to mass murder. All while patting himself on the back for being a “patriot”.
“I love our country and my whole thing with this is that I think we should just look into it… I just think that we deserve to know the truth – that’s it. I’m a patriot. I’ve always been controversial. I’m a political songwriter. And this wasn’t done to hurt any our, my, fellow countrymen. I think that it’s something that we really, really need to look into.”
Listen, the only thing that we really need to look into is WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED TO DAVE MUSTAINE? You know, this guy? Or this guy? And how about this guy? Remember him? Unfortunately, it looks like we’re stuck this Dave Mustaine. And that guy sucks.
Update 2/16/12: Very metal (not really) update: In an interview with Rolling Stone today, Dave Mustaine called everyone reporting that he had endorsed Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum, LIE TELLERS! Says Mustaine:
“Contrary to how some people have interpreted my words, I have not endorsed any presidential candidate. What I did say was that I hope to see a Republican in the White House. I’ve seen good qualities in all the candidates but by no means have made my choice yet. I respect the fact that Santorum took time off from his campaign to be with his sick daughter, but I never used the word ‘endorse.'”
I don’t want to nitwit this thing to death, but short of the word “endorse” here’s the direct quote from Mustaine’s interview with Music Radar that started this whole mess:
I’m hoping that if it does come down to it, we’ll see a Republican in the White House… and that it’s Rick Santorum.”
In case you missed it, read on for our take on Mustaine’s controversial remarks, and a link to his interview in Music Radar after the jump… Continue reading →
