THE best band on earth, with the best song in the world, "Fade To Black". Formed in 1981 by drummer lars ulrich, Metallica released their first album, "Kill 'Em All" in 1983, followed by "Ride the Lightning" ("Fade to Black"'s album) the greatest album in the history of the earth, in 1984. Tragically, in 1986 Cliff Burton died shortly after recording "Master of Puppets". Burton was replaced by bassist Jason Newsted. Although no one could replace Cliff Burton, the show must go on. If you don't believe me, just listen to his bass solo "(Anesthesia)--Pulling Teeth). Newsted's First Record with metallica was "Garage Days Re-Revisited", An EP with five songs. In 1988, they released "...And Justice For All", with their most popular thrash song, "One". Sadly, three years later, Metallica sold out with "Metallica" a.k.a. "Black Album". It was a decent album, but it had a mainstream sound and was twice as popular as any other Metallica album, causing Metallica fans to be also labeled as Daniel Powter fans, and The Fray fans.
I'd say more up there, but i ran out of space. So, to sum it all up, Metallica is better than megadeth, suck now but have the occasional good song, *coughstonecoldcrazycough*, and need to be good again.
