Other Music Videos

The below are the music videos that Megadeth made but aren't on any of their Videography. Megadeth was going to release a video DVD, which was supposed to include 25 videos - all the videos Megadeth have recorded so far ("Skin O'My Teeth" and "Symphony of Destruction" were to be possibly included in two versions each) - with commentaries from both all the former and present members of Megadeth. They even set a tentative release date - November 11, 2000. Unfortunately, the release was postponed - officially due to Lary Mazer's opinion, who was the person preparing the DVD, who didn't want to rush it and compromise the quality of the DVD.

"We still have to do interviews with all of the previous and current members, and we want to do this right... so it will be released when it is perfect." (Lary Mazer, 2000)

"Rather than rush and put it out and be sorry later, we plan on doing this the way that we used to do things, making sure that it is perfect for us all." (Dave Mustaine, 2000)

No More Mr. Nice Guy

(Director: Penelope Spheeris)


Sweating Bullets

(Director: Wayne Isham)

This video contains dozens of Dave Mustaine's, a few Marty's, a few Nick's, and a few Junior's. They're all in jail doing various things. Dave talks to himself via hand puppets and Nick bangs his heads against the drums at one point.


99 Ways to Die

(Director: Wayne Isham)

This video is in black and white and consists of a camera going all around a house with the band in there and a bunch of kids playing with guns. Every once in a while, a black screen comes up with some statistics about how many kids are dying because of accidents with their parents' guns.


Angry Again

(Director: Wayne Isham)

This video shows Dave singing and a bunch of scenes from Last Action Hero.


A Tout Le Monde

(Director: Justin Keith)

Despite protests of many Megadeth fans and proponents of free speech, the video for this song was banned from MTV, because MTV thought that it promoted suicide. They finally agreed to show this video, but some special comments were added, informing how many kids commit suicide every year in the USA etc. The following message appeared at the end of the video "Suicide is not an answer. Get help." The woman and child that appear in this video are Dave's wife Pam and his son, Justis.

"It was banned because of the lyrical content and the theme of the video which they believed was too depressing and suicidal as far as stimulating people to take their own life. I don't see how that video could do that. I do understand that the video was depressing. I didn't really like it myself. I didn't want to use the director that did the video. We had wanted to use someone else. It was a totally different story line than what the video ended up being. But, we had talked to the director and he made it seem like it was really going to work. The story to this video was never really explained to me where it would represent suicide in any way. That was not something that came up. In fact, we don't write music that has any kind of suggestion about taking one's own life. It's more like, 'Hey, we have a problem here, let's be part of the solution.' This is something that is probably the most disappointing - that you've got an institution that is supposedly for your mind and says that censorship is un-American and stuff like that and something goes to them that they believe is obviously distasteful or unacceptable and they won't play it. It cost us a lot of money to have that video made and it is just sitting there now... They are going to have to release it retail and hope that we break even - that the fans will want to see it enough that we recoup some of the money that was laid out. Basically, it was a poor directional move from some of the advisors we had." (Mustaine)

Well, who wouldn't want to see the video after that glowing endorsement from Dave?


Reckoning Day

(Director: Jerry Behrens)

This was a rather ill-conceived video by Megadeth which featured random footage of their world-wide Youthanasia tour. It included a shot of the band swimming in the Jordan River. It was probably made to promote their Reckoning Day tour. However, the MTV didn't play the video, because the Megadeth managers got in a conflict with MTV.


Trust

(Director: Liz Friedlander)


Almost Honest

(Director: Scott Richter)


A Secret Place

(Director: Kyle LaBreche)


Insomnia

(Director: Len Wiseman)


Crush'em

(Director: Kyle LaBreche)

Both "Universal Soldier: The Return" star Jean Claude Van Damme and wrestler Bill Goldberg, who adopted the song as his theme, appear in the song's video.

"Van Damme kicks the camera and breaks a window and Goldberg stands behind me singing a chorus. That's an imposing figure to have behind you, hollering like that. No matter how loud the playback is when you're taping, just to think that this guy could flex a bicep and split your skull open." (Mustaine, 1999)


Breadline

(Director: John Richards)
