Wrecker

Songfacts®:

  • Bassist Dave Ellefson commented to MusicRadar.com regarding frontman Dave Mustaine's lyrics for this song: "This has one of the wittiest and funniest set of lyrics. I know Dave's words are sometimes kind of dark, but 'Wrecker' represents more of the humorous side to him."
  • Ellefson called the riff "massive," saying: "It's one of those parts where the whole band just rallied around and dug in and blew the house down. Some riffs are good, others are great, and then there's riffs that just rock your world. 'Wrecker' is the last example."
