Wake Up Dead


Lights off


Music video by Megadeth performing Wake Up Dead (Broadcast Video) (2006 Digital Remaster). Wake Up Dead is the only single from the Megadeth album "Peace Sells... but Who's Buying?" and additionally the first single ever launched by the band. Along with the title track, Peace Sells, this song is a live staple at almost every Megadeth show. It starts with a descending bass intro and then sustained chords, followed by Dave Mustaine's singing. The song is mostly instrumental, and is about Mustaine fearing revenge from his girlfriend after he cheats on her. It describes him sneaking into his bedroom trying not to wake her up, because she will kill him. This was also the song that Megadeth played when guitarist Marty Friedman was auditioning for the band. The music video for this song features the band playing at a rock concert enclosed in a cage. As the video progresses, the fans go crazy and begin to jump around and climb the metal cage.
