Megadeth won their very first Grammy Award this past weekend for the title song to their "Dystopia" album and the house band played a classic from frontman Dave Mustaine's former band Metallica following his acceptance speech, but he says that he didn't even notice it at the time.

When asked by Radio.com about the snafu of the house band playing Metallica's "Master of Puppets," Mustaine replied, "You know what? I didn't even notice it. It just sounded like some music in the background. The funny thing is that when I went back and listened to my acceptance speech, and I heard the song, I was like, 'Wow!'

"Everyone was asking me, 'What about the Metallica thing?' And I said, 'I didn't hear it, I just saw it.' 'How could you not have heard it?' I didn't know what they were talking about. I thought that they were talking about Metallica's performance. Because we split. By the time they did their thing with Lady Gaga, we were across the street eating dinner.

"So I went back and listened to my acceptance speech and I went, 'Wow!' I didn't mind them playing it at all, it's a house band, and they're doing cover songs. They were probably saying, 'We don't know any Megadeth songs, how about if we do a Metallica song?'

"But when I went back and listened to it, I was like, 'Oh my God, that's the worst version of 'Master of Puppets' I've ever heard in my life!'" Read the full interview here.
