A very great band, who's style ranges from rock to heavy/trash metal.
Anyone who hates them generally is a ''cool'' kid because he listens to Lil Wayne
or Jonas Brothers
and other shit like that.
People who want to look like they like Metallica will say they like 4 songs: Master Of Puppet, One, Enter Sandman and The Day That Never Comes (if they are even able to remember these names). They are just fucking posers
. These song are good, true, but it's the only ones they know.
Peope who actually like Metallica will be able to name other songs than the 4 above, and they will be able to name some albums too.
People who think Metallica is the best band ever (like me) will be able to name you some (or all) of the band members (former and present), name which album X song is on, and have an opinion whether the older Metallica (Ride The Lightning, ...And Justice For All, Kill 'Em All, etc.), the mid Metallica (Load, ReLoad and Metallica (commonly called the ''Black Album)) or the newer Metallica (St. Anger and Death Magnetic) is the best.
''Cool'' kid: Metallica sucks balls Lil Wayne is da shiz.
Me: Dude, you can't compare Metallica and Lil Wayne, that's 2 different styles of music...
''Cool'' kid: YOUR MOM
IS 2 DIFFERENT STYLES OF MUSIC! OOOOOOOOH!!! *all his friend cheer him*
Me: Dude Death Magnetic is Metallica's best album ever.
My friend: No way Kill 'Em All kicks ass!
My other friend: Guys, guys, guys... ReLoad is the best.
*all 3 of us start telling why our choice is best*
One of the greatest bands of all time, with over 85 million albums sold. Known to have been pioneers of the 80s metal scene.
One of the most influential and popular heavy metal groups of all time.
Metallica are the kings of heavy metal.
San Francisco metal band formed in the early 80's. Their four albums from the 80's are class, and incidentally their best known offerings. However the material released post-1991 is of curiously low standard with the occasional great track.
In 2002 (or was it 03?) they released St. Anger, an album which shocked us again at how low they could go. They completely removed the guitar solo (a vital part of the heavy metal song) from all the songs. This resulted in their worst album and their grouping with nu-metal.
One shouldn't forget, however, that their 80's albums are some of the best from that decade, including great tracks like Fade To Black, Sanitarium, One, Ride The Lightning, Battery, The Four Horsemen, Master Of Puppets.
Me: Man, you seen that Metallica DVD?
Friend: With the symphony? Yeah, that was cool, pity James's voice has gone down the drain.
the greatest band on earth. literally. no doubt about it. they have been producing songs since the eighties, in the heavy-metal genre.
a heavy metal band famous for their music in the eighties.
One of the greatest, and most prolific bands of all time. They were pioneers in the genre of thrash metal when they started out, with Kill Em' All. Their next three albums, Ride the Lightning, Master of Puppets, and ...And Justice for All, were, and still are, all considered speedmetal masterpieces. When the 90's rolled around, Metallica released a self titled album, nicknamed the black album. This record featured a softer, more mainstream sound, but still had that characteristic Metallica edge to it. After years of tuoring for the black album, Metallica finally went back into the studio to record their 6th album, Load. Load had a much different sound than any of their previous stuff, opting for a more bluesy, hard rock style than the speedmetal that everyone associated the band with. Not too long after Load came out, a follow up album was released, ReLoad, which consisted of other songs that were written during the same time but didn't make it onto the album. Afterwards, an collection of various old cover songs from the 80's was compiled with brand new covers, and released as Garage Inc. And not too long after that came out, Metallica recorded a concert in which they played many of their classic songs, as well as some new ones, with the San Francisco Symphony. The result was the S&M album. Years later, in 2003, Metallica put out their most recent album, St. Anger. The album had mixed reactions among fans and non fans alike, but now, more than two years after its release,...more...
