On May 12th, 1988 Megadeth released single “Mary Jane” (So Far, So Good.. So What!”).

Contrary to once-popular belief, this song is not about marijuana. It is actually about a girl who takes up witchcraft. Eventually, she wants to get out of it and in an effort to do so, she confesses to her father, who not only doesn’t forgive Mary Jane, but buries her alive. That’s why she haunts the forest.

According to the legend, anyone who dared to disturb her grave was doomed to a prompt death.

The song features descending guitar lines and begins with Mustaine summoning her spirit during the introduction.
