I think that we'll have a motivated, aggressive Metallica to kick our ass this summer. Is anyone else looking foward to this?

Oh yeah, St. Anger baby!

I don't know. Have you heard about this:

Avril Lavigne, Limp Bizkit, Sum 41, and Korn are set to be part of the upcoming MTV Icon: Metallica tribute show.

The above performers will cover Metallica hits infront of Metallica and a host of fans on May 3rd in Los Angeles. The special will air May 6th at 9PM ET on MTV. Metallica themselves will also perform on the show.


I doubt Metallica's proudest days are ahead of them.

EDIT: Wurds.

Metallica. That's them guys who hate Napster, right?

I'm probably not the only one who lost pretty much all respect for them over the Napster thing. This is a band who would have PAID people to listen to their demos circa 1983-84. They were one of the great "do it yourself, do it your way" bands.

I'm also probably not the only one who suspects Jason Newsted left because he couldn't stand what they've become...

Yeah, I actually GAINED respect for them after the "napster thing".

And, for the record: They were selling copies of their LP "Kill 'Em All" in circa 83-84.

I agree on the reasons for Jason's departure. It's interesting because it sort of took that for the band to "figure some shit out". For instance, they recorded their latest album using the very methods that Newsted so desparately wanted to use...(the jamming and writing off the cuff method)


As for the MTV Icon thing: It will be seen by many and it will be Metallica's first public gig with Robert Trujillo.

I don't agree with the bands, but it's MTV so that's to be expected.

James was quoted as saying the jam sessions with Robert were some of the heaviest stuff they've done. I'd like to hear it, but I don't have my hopes up. Hopefully they are through dressing like pimps.

Unless they've somehow brought Cliff back from the dead and he's brought the testicles they lost in the early 90's with him, I'm not interested. And no, I won't put another dime in Lars Ulrich's pockets.

Perhaps if you were too Jump in the Studio before it's too late, you might change an opinion or two.

Okay, I joined it. I would like to see Voivod tour with Metallica instead of Limp, Linkin and the Deftones.

I didn't lost respect for them after the Napster thing. I lost respect for them after they put out Load. Then Re-Load. Then S&M. So, no, I'm not looking forward to whatever they have coming up.

It's interesting. I've always felt that they did what they needed to do by making those records.

Commercial status-wise for a metal band, "The Black Album" was as far.......ah fuckit. Justifying their musical statements throughout their career isn't what I intended with this thread.

Here's too (hopefully) being pleasently impressed with St. Anger. *makes a cheers-like gesture*

Am I the only one that loved S & M? I thought the symphony really fleshed out some of the older songs that I love like "Of Wolf and Man" and "Master of Puppets", and opening the concert with a song from "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly" ("The Ecstasy of Gold") earned brownie points in my book. I have some of it in my usual workout mix on my mp3 player.

And Snowball, kudos for busting out one of my favorite Queen songs.

Agreed on Metallica being on my workout mix. The whole CDs of Ride the Lightning and Master of Puppets seriously make me *that* much stronger in the weight room.

I didn't have any kind of "you sold out" problem with any of their albums, I just didn't much like anything past the Black album.

My opinion is that Ride the Lightning is the best thing they ever did. Puppets and (moreso) Justice were a little more self-indulgent and overblown. Lightning is just brutal, hard music all the way through. And yes, it's some of the best workout music ever.

Put me on the list of people who usually put an old metalica song on their workout mix, but as far as St. Anger is concerned(thats the name of the new album right?) did anyone else hear the song featuring JaRule, The local clearchannel crap rock station played it a few months back and the dj protested until he got Lars to call in and explain himself. Unfortunately I had turned off the station before Lars came on. And now all the station does is occasionaly mention how cool they are since Lars called them. Is that piece of garbage going to be on the new CD?

No no, That song was basically a riff or two and a backing vocal that they gave to Swizz Beatz. A "throwaway", if you will. He put it together, not Metallica.

"The local clearchannel crap rock station". That's one way to describe them. Eh, my gf can't stand Wilcow, and the DJ who did that (can't remember his name) was a bit of an unfunny dick anyways. I'm just surprised they're STILL riding that "We got Lars to call us!" thing... although I shouldn't be.

Had to include it. It's the only song they have in common.

Plus, I'm a big fan of Queen.
