Megadeth’s co-founder and frontman Dave Mustaine blames the Kardashians for encouraging posers to wear band shirts they do not know.
In an interview, the rocker shared a story about his encounter with a girl wearing a Megadeth merch but didn’t know who he was. Mustaine said:
“I just saw one of those little monsters just the other day.
“I was walking down this cute little pass in Eindhoven [Holland], and I see these two young girls, walking, and one of them had a dress on that had Megadeth logos all down the front of it. And I went, ‘Oh, wow.’ I said, ‘Hey, that’s my band.’ And she looked at me like, ‘Get away from me, you pervert.’ And I looked at her and I went, ‘No, no, no, no. That’s my band.’ And she puts her hands up and starts waving me off, like an airplane coming into the jetway too fast.”
The band’s tour photographer then asked the girl and her friend for a picture, but they told him:
“I don’t know the band. We just got this in a boutique down the street. We don’t want to give you our f*cking pictures.”
“I said, ‘She was probably just one of those little celebutante chicks that got it when the Kardashians were wearing Slayer’s T-shirts.’”
On the other hand, Mustaine talked about the band’s song “Celebutante,” which involves name-dropping women who’ll “do anything for fame.” The song is featured on Megadeth‘s latest studio album, The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead.
