Megadeth Shark Bomb T-Shirt

This Megadeth shirt features a sharks head sticking out of the water graphic and band logo on the front of a black cotton shirt.

Early in 1985, the band was given $8,000 by Combat Records to record and produce their debut album. However, after spending half of that budget on drugs and alcohol, the band was forced to fire their original producer and produce the album themselves.

Despite the resulting poor production, Killing Is My Business... and Business Is Good!, released in May 1985, was a well-received effort that blended elements of thrash, and speed metal.

The album features the first of many cover songs performed by Megadeth; a speed metal version of Nancy Sinatra's classic "These Boots Are Made For Walking" , with lyrics altered by Mustaine.

The song sparked controversy in later years when the song's original author, Lee Hazlewood, deemed Mustaine's changes to be "vile and offensive", and demanded that the song be removed from the album.

In the Killing Is My Business... deluxe edition liner notes, Mustaine is strongly critical of Hazlewood, and notes he received royalties for almost 10 years before objecting to the altered version.
