    Now normally I would laugh and enjoy the RidicuList, but this one I found more disrespectful. I'm not talking about towards Dave Mustaine, but instead a genre of music and self expression. At first I thought you would try to poke fun at the fact that Mr. Mustaine's views have changed quite a lot in the years. He once acted as a reporter for MTV at the Democratic National Convention in 1992 and went on to vote for Bill Clinton. He even wrote the song "Foreclosure of a Dream." That criticized Reaganomics. Instead you showed a clip of him explaining his thoughts on the devil and chords. Like the Augmented 4th that was banned in Renaissance church music for sounding evil. Then you showed Lemmy explaining his bass style in a admittedly dramatic way. (Which was a little amusing.) But Lemmy had nothing to do with the topic until you brought him into it. I was offend by the way you seemd to show a genre of music as being unintelligent and ridiculous, therefore are the opinions of any person within it. Now even though I disagree with Mr. Mustaine's statements myself, and will be voting for President Obama again since I disagree with the ideals of the Republican Presidential candidates. I still find this "Ridiculist" disrepectful.

    Anderson you are just showing your ignorance. Dame Mustaine is so much more intelligent that you could even know or will be. You are trying to get ratings and be funny but are failing miserably.
