Double Interview Day: Megadeth and Airbourne

Headbangers of the world, rejoice: There are interviews today with two of the loudest bands in Rock Band. Megadeth’s mastermind Dave Mustaine spared us a few minutes last month to talk some background on our featured DLC album, Peace Sells…But Who’s Buying! Included is the story about the secret inspiration for the song “Wake Up Dead,” when Mustaine made a midnight trip to his ex-girlfriend’s place to retrieve his pet tarantula.


Also joining us in a separate interview is Ryan O’Keeffe of Airbourne, whose “Runnin’ Wild” is one of RB’s great hidden party tunes. He tells us a little about the Aussie rockers’ work ethic, and their after-work ethic as well.
