Megadeth posts video for Headcrusher


Megadeth-Endgame When Stephen King released his novel 'The Running Man' in 1982 under the name Richard Bachman, the idea of a game show in which criminals were hunted by bounty hunters and killed on national television was entertaining, but pretty far-fetched. Today, the premise is far closer to reality. Reality shows like 'American Gladiator' and even the hokey 'Wipe Out' already depict players as victims. The only thing missing is convicts and murderers -- though some would argue the programmers and producers fit that profile to a T.

Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine is well aware of how close society is becoming to a cruel reality show, and he wanted to depict the barbarism in the band's new video, 'Head Crusher,' which you can check out at below or at Noisecreep.

"Endgame" will be released on September 15
