Rick Santorum or Satanic Heavy Metal: The Quiz

Houses of the Holy: Rick Santorum rocks out.

Can you tell the difference between Santorum quotes and Megadeth lyrics? Nope, you probably can't.

On his rise to the top of the Republican charts, Rick Santorum has picked up plugs and plaudits from media and entertainment luminaries including Glenn Beck, the Duggars, Pat Boone, and Dave Mustaine. Wait, what? Dave Mustaine? The heavy-metal ex-warlock is an admirer of Rick Santorum?

In a recent interview with MusicRadar, Mustaine—the Megadeth frontman, former Metallica guitarist, and pillar of the 1980s thrash metal movement—said that Santorum possesses some truly presidential qualities:

Earlier in the election…when the dude went home to be with his daughter when she was sick, that was very commendable. Also, just watching how he hasn't gotten into doing these horrible, horrible attack ads like Mitt Romney's done against Newt Gingrich…I'm hoping that if it does come down to it, we'll see a Republican in the White House…and that it's Rick Santorum.

...until I close my browser. I guess that's probably it. You're only missing an attempt to sort out the rantings of two hateful windbags. I suddenly feel vindicated all times I saw some kid with a Megadeath t-shirt and thought, man that's just lame.

I love the metal but there's no denying Dave Mustaine is a huge douchebag.

Not too surprising since I barely know who Megadeth is (are). Is it that guy with kind of long, stringy reddish hair?

Never been a heavy metal person, I have heard the name Dave Mustaine before this campaign season, but never knew he was political until recently.

His vocal chords are pretty shot now, but he's still a great guitarist nonetheless.

Santorum would be a cool heavy metal band name.

Wow, that hex thing in the video is tight too. I wanna see if I can get some chicks that way. lol

I don't know anything about Megadeath, but geez what a reactionary creep. He relates to the conservative Republican, but can the uber-straight-laced Santorum identify with a heavy metal rocker?
