dave mustaine 300x198 Megadeth Guitarist Battles Men's Wearhouse Over Gift Card[1]Dave Mustaine, guitarist for heavy metal band Megadeth, is upset with suit retailer Men’s Wearhouse (NYSE:MW[2]).

The guitarist, known for his long hair and fast-playing guitar style, complained on the store’s Facebook page late last year, Entertainment Weekly reports[3]. His post concerned the late delivery of a gift card he had ordered for the band’s tour manager; he mocked the store’s slogan of absolutely guaranteeing good service and invited those reading to shop at any other store.

“I, for one, will never set foot in a Men’s Warehouse [sic], even for shelter from a blizzard,” Mustaine wrote. The post now has more than 9,000 “likes” and more than 1,400 comments.

A representative from Men’s Wearhouse finally replied, “Dave, thanks for reaching out to us on Facebook. We apologize for the delay in receiving your gift card and agree that the delay is unacceptable.”

Mustaine founded Megadeth in 1983 after being fired from Metallica.
