Dave Mustaine Accepts His First Grammy To The Sound Of Metallica; Mustaine Responds

February 13, 2017

The 59th annual Grammy Awards were certainly an eventful evening with varying levels of controversy for some of its rock and metal guests. Among those included the first win to 12-time Grammy nominated thrash metal band Megadeth!

Dave Mustaine's victory did appear bittersweet though, as after Megadeth's name was called, the Grammys' house band played their walk to the podium to the tune of "Master of Puppets" by Metallica, the band Mustaine was fired from back in 1983. Listen to his acceptance speech below.

But Mustaine brushed it off. In a tweet he jokingly wrote, "Ah, you can't blame 'em for not being able to play Megadeth."
