There is no definition but "awesome!" they've sold fuck loads of albums, they still fuckin rock the stage live (ST ANGER tour ruled) and still produce good music to the day! (i'd like to clarify that i do like Megadeth aswell, there is no need for the bickering considering megadeth have released fuckin loads anyway!) James Hetfield is God! Kirk is Brilliant, Rob is Fuckin Raw! Lars is short! hahaha that little dane fuckin rules too! "Metal God" bless you Dave Mustaine aswell for releasin more metal (it means more CD's you little moanin bastards!)
Battery, One , Creeping Death, Dyers Eve, Fade to Black, Nothing Else Matters, Seek and Destroy, Master of Puppets, Sanitarium, Disposable Heroes! it goes on i might aswell list the whole list but u don't wanna read all of it you'd rather listen to Metallica!

Probably one of theee best metal bands to ever walk this earth. also known as one of the biggest sellout bands. true, but just cause you've sold out doesnt mean you suck. Metallica is and will be forever one of thee best metal bands. Anything past the 4 first albums is kinda shitty but not all of it.
Dude, metallica is fucking awesome.

The only band that really went through a transition and an experiment in something else (lighter metal) but succeeded anyways.
A lot of fans of Metallica are pissed that they did that but, they are coming back to the original stuff! That and the most mainstreamed they got was ENTER SANDMAN, which wasn't a half bad song. And do you think that they had in their minds that they could make that album go mainstream?

One of the greatest thrash/speed metal bands ever to grace the earth, who have gained much criticism (some of which is understandable) over the suing of Napster for illegal downloads of their music and for the rather shite St. Anger album. Seeing as Metallica are my favourite band this is my attempt to be as unbiased as possible. Ok, I admit St. Anger was one of the worst albums ever made by a band of such quality. And maybe Load and ReLoad disappointed many Diehard Metal fans. But they were still good quality, but rather attempted to aim at a wider, more accessible market with a more rock sound. Megadeth and Metallica have shared many feuds over the last couple of decades, but there is no denying that Dave Mustaine is a far better guitarist than Kirk Hammett. On the flip side I think James is a better vocalist. If you combine the lyrics and vocals of Four Horsemen with the guitaring of Mechanix, the song would be truly amazing. It is a great shame that Dave left the band at such a promising stage because he in my opinion, would of had a major influence on the direction of Metallica. The band has been through a lot too, losing a member is not easy. Cliff was an amazing bassist and is sorely missed by many who idolised and loved him. I guess what I'm trying to say is that Metallica have become famous and people are annoyed because they are more mainstream but lets be honest even the last 3 albums have seldom been played on UK radio. I have only ever heard Enter Sandman and Nothing Else Matters played on radio..They aren't sellouts-just clever businessmen.
P.S Old school metal rules. New stuff sucks...
New style metal fan: Hey, have you heard Bullet For My Valentine's new album?

The best metal band in history, they are considered one of the 4 greatest metal bands along with megadeth, slayer, and anthrax, but metallica is the best in my opinion. They have released great tracks such as, Master of Puppets, Fade to Black, One, Welcome Home(Sanitarium), Orion, and The Four Horsemen. They lost Cliff Burton in a bus accident in Sweden, the tour bus went off road and he flew out the window and was crushed by the bus. R.I.P Cliff Burton, we'll miss you and he was one of the best bassists ever.
