    I don’t think you could possibly get any more clueless than that. But I guess going for Roadrunner Records that’s to be expected.

    There’s no fucking way I’d play with Mustaine, and I’m pretty sure he’d whine like a little bitch as soon as he went down and try to sic Jesus on me or something.

    If I had one of the playboxes I would have joined, but I only have a PC and I feel discriminated right now. I really like to play along uncle Dave.

    DSB why the hate for Dave?

    Celebrity Team Deathmatch? I approve! May I humbly suggest PlayBoy Bunnies V The cast of glee as a future listing?

    @4 Everyone on this list is terrible.

    Though I would love to get on the Korn side, just to ask Jonathan Davis why he’s still whining about his life like an angst ridden teenager, when he’s in his 40s.

    As soon as I saw the headline, my first question was…which side exactly was Korn going to be on?

    @5 Because he’s a narcicistic, underachieving whiny christian-in-name-only.

    The guy is pathetic. If he isn’t blaming drugs for his own fuck-ups, he’s blaming people around him, and the only reason why he’s resorted to christianity is to add yet another excuse for his behaviour.

    Dave Mustaine hates metal, and metal hates him.
