A band that was better before they were famous.

A band that's a bunch of sellouts.

Something that was at some point in time brilliantly spectacular but has since degenerated into utter crap.

One of the best bands ever. Heavy influence since 1980's on metal music, popularizing the genre of trash metal. Formed by James Hetfield, Kirk Hammet, Lars Ulrich and Cliff Burton (R.I.P). Their only trouble is to keep a bassist on the band. Cliff, Jason Newsted... and Rob Trujillo.
Dude, if you didn´t knew metallica before reading this. YOU ARE A NOOB!!!

Get a Metallica mug for your mother-in-law Nathalie.
The most popular heavy metal band of their time (which still continues today).
These dudes totally killed it with their debut album "Kill 'em All" and has been rockin' it ever since. They totally changed heavy metal. Many bands of today have been obviously inspired by them, such as: Disturbed, Pillar, DragonForce (believe it or not, Metallica is in their Special Thanks section on their Inhuman Rampage album), Red, and Aftershock (my band, totally underground.)
Inducted into the Rock 'N Roll Hall of Fame after releasing their newest album, "Death Magnetic". This album made Platinum in the first two weeks of release.
Brad: "Hey, who do you think is the coolest metal band of all time?"
Billy: "Psssh, Metallica of course."

A band that plays heavy but not TOO heavy music. Some of their most famous songs are Nothing Else Matters, Enter Sandman, The Day that Never Comes, and their cover of Turn the Page. known as just general badasses.

A band that used to be great before they sold out with Load (1996) and decided to sue those who downloaded their music off of Napster.
Metallica (1983-1991) = Kicks ass
Metallica (1996-onwards) = SUCKS!

Get a metallica mug for your father-in-law Callisto.
A San Francisco metal band (1981- ). Considered by many to be the most influential band of the 1980s. Many of their songs are landmarks of the 80s particularly "One", "Master of Puppets", "Fade to Black" and "Four Horsemen". Like all bands, Metallica has undergone quite a few traumatic events, most notably the bizarre death of bassist Cliff Burton. The band also gained a measure of notoriety for rejecting Dave Mustaine who would go on to form Metallica's chief rival Megadeth, and for challenging the P2P version of Napster. Their best-selling album happens to be their eponymous Black Album that sold 16,000,000 copies, catapulting the band into becoming the best-selling act in 25 years. Estimates of sales range from 80 to well over 100 million. Many believe Metallica to be in rapid decline after the release of three sub-optimal albums (see Load, Reload, and St. Anger).
Dude, the Metallica concert's gonna fuckin' rock!
