    Metallica are a bunch of sellouts anyway, what did you expect. Was never really a big fan of theirs. They had some good songs pre the Black album, but after that they were just putrid. That's just my opinion.

    Taste in music is an opinion
    I loved everything they did other than lulu

    I think load and reload are some of their best work
    I know the thrash fans don't agree and it's their opinion

    But I'm a huge fan and have been since I first discovered them in the late 80s.

    I don't think they are sell outs

    I think they are creative geniuses who have made a diverse range of music that has stood the test of time and deserve all the accolades they get.

    But I'm fucking pissed that Australia and New Zealand fans are being neglected

    Yep, fuck Metallica. Released one of the worst records I've ever heard with St anger, are way overrated as a band (and by all accounts are complete arseholes to boot)

    Of course, I ain't pissin on ya boot about Metallica hence why I said "in my opinion". Mate if they are your favorite band, all power to ya.

    I feel ya pain, if It was a band I liked I'd feel pissed off too. If it wasn't for the fans, they'd have nothing.

    He looks like someone who has a chili pepper shoved all the way up his rectum when he drums (he probably gets James to help put it there before each show)

    Overrated? Biggest metal band in history. Fact.
    Their accolades are hard earnt and well deserved IMO.
    Most rockstars would be complete arrogant arseholes, same as actors and any other major celebrities. It seems to go with the territory.

    I'm not a huge metal fan but having heard all of their albums, while they do have some great songs the overall quality of their music isn't that great, mega death or anthrax are better "metal" bands imo. Metallica were just that right place right time kinda deal

    Obviously music is very much an opinion thing but Megadeth and Anthrax are light-years below Metallica in terms of quality music.
    The one HUGE letdown for Megadeth is Dave Mustaine's voice- IMO he sounds like a character from The Muppets with that nasally whine of his. And Anthrax lyrically don't even come close to Metallica.
    Right place, right time? They produced their greatest works 5-7 years before they were lauded as megastars.

    If you check metallicas best songs you will see Dave Mustaine and Cliff Burtons names are attached to them.

    I disagree about the light years below part. Apart from Hardwired..., Metallica haven't really produced anything great for many many years, whereas Anthrax have had decent albums come out in that time. Moreso than Metallica anyway.

    Huh? Not 1 song on Master Of Puppets or Ride The Lightning (widely regarded as their 2 best albums) has Mustaine's name on it. Can't give him any credit for that.
    Cliff was a genius, no coincidence they wrote their greatest stuff with him. Justice was done without him though and that was pretty damn good.
