When you think of heavy metal bands, a few iconic images likely come to mind – and Megadeth has one that is hard to beat.
We’re talking about Vic Rattlehead, the spooky mascot often seen holding a skull or a weapon on their album covers and music videos.
This metal mascot was created by the band’s lead vocalist and guitarist, Dave Mustaine, creating an unforgettable symbol for the American heavy metal band.
The origins of Vic Rattlehead can be traced back to Megadeth’s early days when Dave Mustaine was inspired to create the character from an eerie metal sculpture he saw with a wire mesh mask covering its face.

The metal mask covering his face symbolizes how people are often forced to conform to societal norms and suppress their true selves.
The skull represents death and the impermanence of life, reminding us to make the most of our time.
But Vic Rattlehead isn’t just a symbol for Megadeth. Instead, he has become an emblem for the entire heavy metal culture.
He is an influential and iconic image representing the band’s music and message.
