"It's not a bunch of 27-year-olds trying to see who's got the biggest dick. Anthrax, Megadeth, Slayer, Metallica, we all kind of have our own little niche, our own little unique place. So it's not sorta like, Who's better at this? 'Cause at the end of the day, we all do our own thing. And when it comes to drums, Dave Lombardo is, by far and away, God. There's no competitive edge, but if there was, Dave would win. Lombardo could kick the rest of our asses with just a whip of his little finger. So there's no competitive edge."
Lars also talks about his oldest son Myles, who is a huge Megadeth fan:
"And for a while. a couple of years ago, on the commute to school, we'd go through these phases, whether it's Rage Against The Machine or System Of A Down. And there was a phase where we were listening to a lot of Megadeth. And his favorite song was Hook In Mouth [off 'So Far, So Good... So What!']. So there was a while there, three or four years ago now, where basically I would wake up in the morning and get my kids ready for school, and get in my car at 7:40 in the morning and start blasting Hook In Mouth for the morning commute to school there. Sort of a different vibe from 15 years earlier."
