"À Tout le Monde" is a song by American thrash metal band Megadeth, featured on their 1994 studio album Youthanasia. It was released as a single on February 1995 through Capitol Records. The song was later remade and reissued as "À Tout le Monde (Set Me Free)", featuring Cristina Scabbia of Lacuna Coil, on Megadeth's 2007 studio album United Abominations. The song's chorus, "à tout le monde, à tous mes amis, je vous aime, je dois partir", translated into English is, "to everyone, to all my friends, I love you, I have to leave", which prompted controversy after accusations that it was pro-suicide.

Music and lyrics

The music video for "A Tout le Monde" was banned by MTV, who claimed it was pro-suicide.[1] However, in an interview conducted around 1994, Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine stated:

It's not a suicide song. What it is, it's, you, it's when people have a loved one that dies and they end on a bad note, you know, they wish that they could say something to them. So this is an opportunity for the deceased to say something before they go. And it was my impression of what I would like to say to people, if I had say, 3 seconds to do so in life before I died I'd say to the entire world, to all my friends, I love you all, and now I must go. These are the last words I'll ever speak, and they'll set me free. I don't have to say I'm sorry, I don't have to say I'm going to miss you, or I'll wait for ya. You know, I'll just say I loved you all, good, bad, indifferent, I loved you all.[2]
