Rusted Pieces


Peace Sells :: Wake Up Dead :: In My Darkest Hour :: Anarchy in the UK :: Holy Wars... The Punishment Due :: Hangar 18

Peace Sells

(Director: Robert Longo, producer: Victoria Hamburg)

Videos were the big thing around this time and Capital Records wanted Megadeth to do one. This was Megadeth's first.

The video features Megadeth concert footage and various scenes that are flashed across the screen and pretty much mirror the lyrics. It was banned in the UK because officials there thought that it would cause fits of frenzy.


Wake Up Dead

(Director: Penelope Spheeris, producer: Carl Wyant)

This video shows a Megadeth concert where the band is inside of a cage and fans are crawling all over the place.


In My Darkest Hour

(Director: Penelope Spheeris, producer: Jonathan Dayton, Valerie Faris)

This video also shows a Megadeth concert with fans stage diving and such, also some studio out-takes of the band. Dave and David say that it was the first time those fans were hearing the song. Other than that, the video is pretty nondescript.

This video was banned by MTV because they thought the lyrics were about suicide.

The video was also used in the movie, The Decline of Western Civilization 2: The Metal Years, also directed by Penelope Spheeris.


Anarchy in the UK

(Director: David Mackie, producer: Joe Waddleworth)

This video shows some concert footage, some morbid cartoons, also some scenes with a kid being strapped down into a chair, sort of like in the movie Clockwork Orange.

"You know, I like the way that in there on some video shows they censored out the 'I am an Anti-Christ' and 'other cunt-like tendencies' with the guy screaming in there." (Ellefson)

By this, David is referring to the censored versions of the video, where the profanity was censored out by some guy screaming in some versions, and by explosions in others.


Holy Wars... The Punishment Due

(Director: Eric Zimmerman and Benjamin Stokes, producer: Jim Deloye)

This video features Megadeth playing in an airplane hangar and a bunch of quick pictures of war and bloodshed, mainly from the Middle East.


Hangar 18

(Director: Paul Boyington, producer: Pete Mokler)

The video has Megadeth playing in a power plant made to look like some kind of government installation, along with a lot of special effects of aliens and flying saucers, many of which are crude by today's standards.
