This may not be exactly what the guys in Rage Against the Machine had in mind.
Dave Mustaine, the temperamental Megadeth frontman who was fired from Metallica in 1983, has found an unlikely target for his ire: Men’s Wearhouse. On Dec. 28, he posted a message on the band’s Facebook wall lambasting the retailer for poor service over the holidays. A gift card that he ordered for his tour manager, he says, was not delivered within the guaranteed two days.
“I really think that it sucks when people make false claims, that they don’t care to make good on a problem that is clearly their fault, and with all of the ‘ABSOLUTELY GUARANTEE IT’ crap I just had to say something,” he wrote in the post. “We are all living in very tight financial times right now, and like I said, you may not wear a suit for your job or for an event or occasion, but if you do, I would strongly recommend you wear someone else’s suits. Go to Jos. A Bank instead. I for one, will never set foot in a Men’s Warehouse, even for shelter from a blizzard.”
Men’s Wearhouse did not respond immediately to a request for comment about this story.
The post has gone on to generate nearly 9,000 “Likes” and more than 1,400 comments. On Wednesday of this week, a representative from Men’s Wearhouse left a reply.
“Dave, thanks for reaching out to us on Facebook,” wrote Joe from the Men’s Wearhouse Social Media Team. “We apologize for the delay in receiving your gift card and agree that the delay is unacceptable.” Men’s Wearhouse also responded on Twitter:
However this issue is resolved, it’s clear who the real winner is here: Metallica.
