United Abominations

By on 8.24.06 | 4:05PM

Jed Babbin and heavy metal guitarist/vocalist Dave Mustaine of Megadeth probably don't have too many overlapping areas of interest, but an abiding disgust for the United Nations is apparently one of them. Here's Mustaine explaining to Billboard how his band's upcoming opus came to be titled United Abominations:

"I was watching TV and saw the trucks that said 'UN' on them and said, 'Man, you are so uncool, ineffective, anything," Mustaine said. "I thought, 'Wow, I've got to run with this. I got it -- United Abominations, 'cause it's an abomination what they're doing!'"
