Formed once Dave Mustaine was dismissed from Metallica in 1983, Megadeth soon became known as one of the“big four” of American thrash metal, responsible for its development and popularization. With music that features complex arrangements, fast rhythm sections, and lyrical themes of death, war, politics, and religion, Megadeth has sold over 38 million records worldwide. They have received twelve Grammy nominations with the first being won in 2017 for their song“Dystopia” in the Best Metal Performance category.
Featuring the Megadeth’s skull-faced mascot Vic Rattlehead, the shirt is a tribute to one of the most influential and successful thrash metal bands on earth. Vic is a skeletal figure who embodies the phrase“See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil” as well as a symbol of censorship. Dave Mustaine sketched the original drawing of Vic. The name stands for“victim” and Rattlehead comes from what Mustaine’s mother used to say to him when he was headbanging:“Don’t do that or you’ll rattle something up in there!”
