Dave Mustaine vs. Serj Tankian – President of Heavy Metal Election, Round 1

Here’s an interesting match for the President of Metal. On the left in the image above but on the right in the political spectrum, we’ve got Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine, who is one of music’s most vocal conservatives. But in the realm of metal, he’s the frontman responsible for 13 Megadeth albums. He also played in a little band called Metallica during the band’s early stages.

On the right (but on the left, politically), we’ve got Serj Tankian, one of metal and rock music’s most vocal liberals. Besides voicing his political views, Tankian fronts one of modern metal’s most successful bands in System of a Down. As the co-founder of the nonprofit organization Axis of Justice with Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello, Tankian has already started the fight for social justice in the world. Now, he can expand his message if elected President of Heavy Metal.
