MEGADETH Frontman Vs. Stagedivers In Houston; Video Available

Two kids reportedly jumped up on stage during MEGADETH's March 25, 2010 performance at the Verizon Wireless Theater in Houston, Texas, in the process infuriating the band's frontman Dave Mustaine, who proceeded to give them a tongue lashing. Mustaine ended up going on a diatribe relating the experience back to "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott's (PANTERA) murder in 2004.

"I really don't say a lot from the stage, but those two little fucking assholes that just came up here on stage... We lost a very dear friend of all of ours in the state of Texas, we lost Darrell because some fucking piece of shit came up on the stage behind him and shot him," Mustaine said. "You know what I'm talking about, right?" He continued, "Listen, if you're gonna come up on the stage tonight, just know you're fair game. And if you're gonna stay out there, you're my friends, and if someone comes up on the stage and tries to fuck with me, I want you to help me. We'll take him outside and we'll give him a good old-fashioned Texas fucking beatin' . . . One thing is for sure — those little fuckers got thrown out before I could get hold of them." He then said, "This next song ['Head Crusher'] I'm gonna dedicate to them, or the death of them, actually."

After noticing a kid in the crowd who was giving Mustaine the "middle-finger" salute during the "Head Crusher" introduction, the MEGADETH frontman stated, "Oh, you're flipping me off. Oh, you big bad-ass. Oh, you're so tough, aren't you? Look at you, aren't you a cocksucker. Yeah. You're flipping me off." He continued, "Hey, I wonder what his mother is doing, but I don't think sucking dick is really important." He added, "This is what happens when your cousins fuck you, you stupid fuck. You don't even have hair on your pussy. Put your fingers up in the air and stuff them up your ass, OK, you cunt? This is definitely dedicated to you. You are not a Texan, you pussy. You're not a Texan. You weren't even born in this fucking country, you pussy."
