Also known as Godsmack
, a post-grunge alternative metal band known for ripping off Metallica. Vocalist Sully Erna sings as if doing a bad James Hetfield impression and steals song names and ideas from Metallica albums. Godsmack's newest album contains two songs with identical titles as Metallica tracks, "Bleeding Me" (from Load) and "Temptation" (a St. Anger b-side). Blatantly ripped off from Metallica is Godsmack's "The Enemy", with an uncanny resemblance to "Sad But True" (The Black Album). Ironically, the lyrics in this song relate to a cheap, sub-standard mockery of an original. Sully sings "I know, everbody knows you're tryin' to be like me... but even at your best as a man you couldn't equal half of me." Maybe James should have written that song about Sully.
fan listening to Godsmack will burst out in laughter when they see the obvious mimicry.
Metallica let Godsmack open for them on the "Madly in Anger With You Tour" '04 to make themselves look like gods in comparison. Godsmack was just Metallica Jr.
