Mustaine on fans and art

Dave Mustaine has been thinking about Megadeth's fans capacity for evil:

I also know that we've got some fans that are great people and we've got some fans that aren't such nice guys. There are some people who are fans of ours that love our music and they use it to do bad stuff with.”

Yes. Like playing it to other people. There oughta be a law.

Dave has also decided to share his songwriting insights with a wider world, too:
"I like writing about things that are important for us as people regardless of what nationality we are. I like writing stuff that's intelligent for us as a race regardless of how old we are or what sex we are. MEGADETH music is something that's provocative and stimulating and it's been that way ever since the beginning. I've always tried to write lyrics that were something that would make you sit back and say, ‘Wow, I wonder what he's talking about,' and then do a little research on it. I've never said vote this way, vote that way, I'm this so you better be that, too."

Really?
SEE THING IN AGONY
NECROSIS IS THE FATE
PINS STICKING THROUGH THE SKIN
THE VENOM NOW SEDATES
LOCKED IN A PILLORY
NOWHERE TO BE ROUND
SCREAMING FOR YOUR LIFE
BUT NO-ONE HEARS A SOUND
HELLPP MMMEEEEEEE
PREPARE THE PATIENTS SCALP
TO PEEL AWAY
METAL CAPS HIS EARS
HE'LL HEAR NOT WHAT WE SAY
SOLID STEEL VISOR
RIVETED CROSS HIS EYES

You mean this wasn't an out-and-out endorsement of McCain?
