Kirk Hammet is the guitarist for metallica, but the act of pulling a Kirk Hammet refers to playing very fast pentatonic scales with a wah wah pedal over and over again instead of using your talent to actually play.
Guy 1 "Bro what are you doing man? that guitar solo sounded like shit"

Guy 2 "Brah what are you talking about, I couldn't come up with anything so I just Kirk Hammeted."

One kick ass guitarist. May not be the best, but hawaii may not be the best holiday spot either. Doesn't mean it doesn't kick ass though. Joined Metallica in 1983 after Dave Mustaine was kicked out. The least whiney and monkey-like of four members.

Lead guitarist for Metallica, since 1983. Replaced Dave Mustaine. Gets a lot of shit from Megadeth fans and from idiots who otherwise don't like Metallica. He's a damn good player though.

Kirk Hammett can play faster than you or anyone you know, so think twice before saying that he "sucks", ok?

One of the fastest guitarist ever. If you see him in concert he does arpegio runs that will blow your mind. The only reason the new albums don't have solos is because James Hetfield writes all the songs and he never writes anything that pushes Hammet's skills.
Kirk Hammet is so badass.
He replaced Mustaine he must be good.
