Talk about insult to injury. After nominating Megadeth 12 times for a Grammy, but never actually giving them a statue, Dave Mustaine and friends finally get their just dues, winning the Best Metal Performance category for “Dystopia,” the title track from Megadeth’s latest album. Unfortunately, the Grammy house band starting playing a METALLICA song before the award presentation. You know, the band that threw Dave out three year before he formed Megadeth.
At least he took it in great stride.
Listen as “Master of Puppets” plays in the above video.
Of course Dave did get the final laugh. When Metallica took the stage to perform with Lady Gaga, the mics weren't exactly working!
