  • Lyrics
  • This track about a citizen who is being driven mad by his financial worries is the second single from American heavy metal band Megadeth's twelfth studio album, Endgame.
  • Police were called to the set of the song's music video shoot because of concern that Megadeth were using an armoured tank in the clip. Frontman Dave Mustaine reported on his Live Line service, "We're on location making the video for 'Right to Go Insane' We've got an M68a tank. The cops are here – it can get pretty hairy with this video shoot. I don't know what's going to happen from this point, but we're excited. It's a great day to be alive. God bless!"

  • Idan from Hadera, IsraelThis song is about Shawn Timothy Nelson (August 21, 1959 – May 18, 1995). He was a U.S. Army veteran and unemployed plumber who stole an M60A3 Patton tank from a United States National Guard Armory in San Diego, California, and went on a rampage on May 18, 1995, destroying cars, fire hydrants, and a recreational vehicle before being shot and killed by police.
