Megadeth will release their 15th studio album early next month when 'Dystopia' hits stores on April 8, and discussing the themes and tone of his lyrics, Mustaine tells Fox News: "If you're a musician who writes happy love songs and stuff like that, if that makes your boat float, that's great.
"I like talking about things that affect me. I came from a broken family, broken home, latchkey kid, I was on food stamps, that whole thing, so I know what it's like to have the odds stacked against you.
