I am very, VERY disappointed, but not too surprised. They've been on this NFT crypto shit for a while. Kinda ironic for the band that wrote "Dawn Patrol" eh?

I read that as "Smegma". I will now not refer to it by any other name.

This would make more sense if Ellefson were still in the band.

Yeah, no. You can't just say that and hope we take your word for it. Please explain yourself because I see absolutely zero way this is ever going to be a trend in music, even less in metal.

Mustaine has turned more and more into this alt-right conspiracy idiot over the years, and most of what he does places him in the outlier category, not in the norm.

Nearly spurted out my drink through my nose! You could end this thread to that post. Dave continues to be a sorry sack of shit, not really news.

It probably won't be too many, but yeah there will likely be more bands making cryptos - it's just a trend in general right now among lots of things.

This sounds both dystopian and stupid.

Ellefson trying to get into her DMs, I'm already in his crypto wallet stealing his NFTs.

I mean, they're so goddamn huge by metal standards that they can do whatever they want at this point. It's already a sketchy trend with a lot of scam potential, but if you wanna do it, fine.

No one will remember any of this in a few months.

I don't think it's a good idea to just pass this off as "meh people'll forget about it" because cryptocurrency is fucking terrible for the enviroment. NFTs (which Megadeth are doing btw) take up enough energy to power 2 full-family houses.
