90s at 9 'Sweating Bullets'

What would happen if you were faced with your dark side?

"Sweating Bullets" was Megadeth's third single from their 5th album Countdown to Extinction.  It was released in 1993 and it peaked at #27 on the Mainstream Rock Chart that year. 
"Sweating Bullets" is about a  schizophrenic guy who is faced with his dark side who tells him he can't be repressed much longer. Soon the guy wakes up with blood stains on his hands and no memory of what happened. 
Dimebag Darrell of Pantera loved the song so much he got a tattoo of a black tooth grin in reference to the line, "Someday you too will know my pain and smile its black tooth grin." He also created a drink by that name which is mostly whiskey with a splash of coke. 
Megadeth's Dave Mustaine revealed on VH1's That Metal Show , that the song was inspired by a friend of his girlfriend (and later, his wife), Pam. This friend suffered from anxiety attacks - Mustaine called her "s--thouse crazy." She would take Pam to a party, have an anxiety spell and leave her; Mustaine would get the call and have to pick her up.

I'm a Central Wisconsin girl born and raised. I grew up in Port Edwards and participated in cheerleading, basketball, volleyball and softball as well as many clubs like National Honor Society, SADD, yearbook and forensics. I was a very busy high school student and still managed to get good enough grades to go to college at UW-Stevens Point where I was just as busy between working 3 jobs including executive staff positions at the campus alternative rock radio station and volunteering at the campus television station.

After graduation I thought I would take my BA in Mass Communications with emphasis in Broadcasting and Journalism and Minor in Political Science and become a big time reporter in some major city. But instead my internship with our news station here at Midwest Communications turned into a part-time job and opened the door to the morning show co-host position at WDEZ. After 9 1/4 years of fun in the mornings I was promoted to Assistant Brand Manager and moved to The Workday Getaway.

I couldn't deny my love for rock anymore! It was time dive head first into the genre I spent my formative years listening to day in and day out. When the opportunity arose for me to become the Brand Manager for Rock 94.7 and host the morning show I couldn't pass it up.

I'm so happy that I stayed in Central Wisconsin I couldn't imagine raising my three daughters anywhere else.
