“This song travels a lot of ground, too. When I was getting into the guitar, people would talk about Peace Sells… but Who’s Buying? as the ultimate Megadeth record, but when I heard Rust In Peace, I knew it was far better.
“This is the opening song, and it’s full of incredibly fast, thrashy guitar playing. Dave Mustaine is one of the best rhythm guitarists in the world. And Marty Friedman is outstanding in his own right. I hear a lot of Brian May in his playing. He’s got a cool way of choosing notes and has such distinctive feel – you know it’s him from a mile away.
“The song is long, and it has its own unique kind of momentum. It gets slow, it takes off, and it talks about people causing all sorts of destruction and blowing each other up. Pretty awesome.”
