It’s no secret that I love Megadeth. In fact, I’m what you might call a mega-ficionado, given the fact that I own Megadeth potholders, towels, and a Dave Must-apron.
However, I stumbled across a Megadeth song I didn’t know existed. It’s actually an Alice Cooper song, so I’m doubly surprised I wasn’t privvy to this song already: No More Mr. Nice Guy.
How did I find this gem of a cover song, you ask? I discovered it while googling the soundtrack to an equally gem-tastic Wes Craven late-80s masterpiece, Shocker — the movie that I’m pretty sure caused me to hate both Coke and anything grape flavored, because as a 4-year-old I saw a bit of it (thanks to my ultra-cool aunt), freaked out, and threw up the coke and grape fruit rollup that I had been eating.
Anyway, I’d been searching for this movie for years to figure out what the hell made me react in that way. I’m still not sure, but I found a new (to me) Megadeth tune that comes with a video which features Dave Mustaine’s not-quite-b-movie quality acting. And lightning. LOTS of lightning.
Ever discover a long lost tune from a favorite band?
