MEGADETH Mainman Talks 'Guitar Hero' With WALMART's 'Game Center' (Video)

Walmart's Game Center conducted an interview with MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine on September 8, 2010 at the DNA Lounge in San Francisco, California at a launch event for "Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock". You can now watch the chat below.

The new MEGADETH song "Sudden Death", which serves as the finger-busting finale to the " "Guitar Hero: Warriors Of Rock" game, is available for streaming below.

In a recent interview with RollingStone.com, Mustaine stated about the song, "I'm sure some fans will think it's the greatest thing we've ever done. But other people will say it sucks. That's just the way of the world."

Mustaine told RollingStone.com the track has a "funky kind of polyrhythm to it" which will make it even more difficult for the Guitar Hero elite. "Just the sheer repetitiveness of it can blow people's minds. And, my guitar style is way different than [other MEGADETH guitarist] Chris Broderick's. Chris plays with a lot of love and I play with a lot of hate. My guitar playing is explosions, and his is more like fireworks. When you are trying to emulate the two kind of guitar styles, it's tricky. I don't care what anyone says, you've gotta be good."

"I thought it was a great idea for us," said Mustaine. "We've had experience with games in the past, and our songs have been in sports games and Grand Theft Auto, but we never really got into the Guitar Hero thing. When they talked to us about doing this, I never imagined it would be something this honorable."
