The Economy Sucks So I'm Giving Away More Free Music

Ok, so everyday I watch the news and hear how the economy is either a) in crisis or b) just fine. Anyone with any modicum of common sense knows the world economy is on shaky ground right now, but that doesn't mean people can stop living. It just means we have to be a little smarter with our money.

I love music. It's a weakness. I spend lots of money on shows and new CDs. Now, I'm giving away two copies of Megadeth's Anthology: Set The World Afire. The double-disc set was released Tuesday. This is Megadeth's first new CD since releasing the Warchest box set. The two CD set features 35 songs, including past hits like “Peace Sells” and some previously hard-to-find live recordings. All songs are digitally remastered. Anthology: Set The World Afire also features “High Speed Dirt,” previously unreleased in the U.S.

Now, you're probably wondering where the contest comes into play. I've got two copies of Anthology: Set The World Afire to give away. If you want a copy, write me and explain how 80s Megadeth influenced modern Glam bands. Yes kids, many modern Glam bands cite both Metallica and Megadeth as musical influences. Remember: our definition of Glam has evolved over time. I think Black Tide are plenty Glam. Back in the day, they would have been considered "heavy." Email your responses to Please put Megadeth in the subject line. Send me those responses by 5pm EST on Saturday, October 4, 2008. Good luck.

That's odd. My Copy of Symphony Of Destruction has High Speed Dirt on it. It was one of my fave tracks from that record.

Megadeth is not glam. Haha sorry Allyson. I like Megadeth. But they have stated multiple times before that they hate the "glam" genre.

Some of the modern glam bands list Megadeth as an influence, yes that's true. But, that's because they MIX elements of glam, and elements of heavier metal, like Megadeth. Just because they list Megadeth, it doesn't make Megadeth glam.

Megadeth are not Glam. I've never called them Glam, either. Like it or not, they've influenced many modern Metal and Glam bands. That is their legacy - even if Dave Mustaine hates it with a passion.

Anyone of us on this board could have been appointed to any of these roles delivering the exact same outcome - at half the salary?!?! What do you guys all think?

"And what a bunch of numbskulls - Greenspan, Paulson and Bernanke! Every word they've said so far has been financial poison. "Greenspan relaxed about house prices..." reported the Financial Times in 2005. "Most negatives in housing are probably behind us..." said the same sage in October 2006. "We believe the effect of the troubles in the subprime sector...will be likely limited..." said Bernanke in March 2007. It's "not a serious problem...I think it's going to be largely contained," added Paulson in April 2007.

But these are the same numbskulls who now say they are saving capitalism from itself. Ah, there's the rub...amid all this giddy merriment is a serious threat. The feds have bailed out the bankers, the insurers, the mortgage lenders, and half of Wall Street. But who will bail out the feds?" ~ Bill Bonner, The Daily Reckoning
