    Is it the fact that the line "Fuck it all and fucking no regrets" is in both songs? If that's it then I feel I should point out that both "Hit the Lights" and "St. Anger" both contain the line "hit the lights"

    Yes. However, the lyric "hit the lights" in St. Anger is in a different context than in Hit the Lights. (At least, I'm pretty sure it is.)

    And guess what? Every Metallica song contains the letter E!

    THE OTHER THREAD IS PRETTY MUCH DEAD + THIS IS A BIGGER OP (DON'T BAN ME MODS :D <3 )

    Metallica are one of the biggest metal bands in the World currently. Formed in 1981; when band members Lars Ulrich and James Hetfield met through a local small advertisement placed by drummer Ulrich, to start up a metal band. Originally consisting of James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Ron McGovney and Dave Mustaine, Metallica has had 4 different bassists, from McGovney, Burton, Newstead and currently Trujillo.

    Early Years, Metal Militia, Mustaine and Metallica

    http://www.metallicaworld.co.uk/earl...tists/734a.jpg
    Ulrich's ad stated...



    Ulrich talked to long time friend Ron Quintana, who came up with two names for a Metal magazine, "Metal Mania" and "Metallica". Ulrich said Ron should go with Metal Mania, and Ulrich used Metallica as the name of his band.

    A second advertisement was placed in "The Recycler" (the local paper) for a position as lead guitarist. Dave Mustaine (now of Megadeth) answered, and, after seeing his expensive guitar equipment, Ulrich and Hetfield recruited him. In 1982, Metallica recorded its first original song "Hit the Lights" for the Metal Massacre I compilation. Released on June 14, 1982, early pressings of "Metal Massacre I" listed the band incorrectly as "Mettallica". Despite the error, Metallica managed to create enough "buzz" with the song and the band played its first live show on March 14, 1982, in Anaheim, California with newly recruited bassist Ron McGovney.

    In the Autumn of 1982, Ulrich and Hetfield attended a show at the nightclub, which featured, future Metallica bassist, Cliff Burton in a band called Trauma. The two were "blown away" by Burton's use distortion and playing styles, and asked him to join Metallica.

    Hetfield and Mustaine wanted McGovney out as they thought that he "didn't contribute anything, he just followed." Cliff at first was reluctant to join, but by the end of the year he accepted on the condition the band move to San Francisco.

    During recordings for their first album "Kill 'Em All"; Band members decided to kick Mustaine out of the band due to drug and alcohol abuse, and violent behaviour. It was reported Mustaine damaged guitars, a car and started fights with James Hetfield, after he kicked Dave's dog. "Exodus" guitarist Kirk Hammett flew in to replace Mustaine the same afternoon. Metallica's first show with Kirk Hammett was on April 16, 1983, at the nightclub The Showplace in Dover, New Jersey.

    Mustaine, who went on to found Megadeth, has often expressed his dislike for Hammett in interviews. He said Hammett "stole my job." Mustaine was "pissed off" because he believes Hammett became popular by playing the guitar leads that Mustaine wrote. In a 1985 interview with Metal Forces, Mustaine slammed Hammett saying, "it's real funny how Kirk Hammett ripped off every lead break I'd played on that No Life 'til Leather tape and got voted No. 1 guitarist in your magazine."On Megadeth's 1985 debut album Killing Is My Business... and Business Is Good!, Mustaine included the song "Mechanix", which Metallica renamed as "The Four Horsemen" on Kill 'Em All. Mustaine said he did this to "straighten Metallica up", as Metallica referred to Mustaine as a drunk and said he could not play guitar.

    Kill 'Em All and Ride The Lightning

    http://www.whokilledbambi.co.uk/publ..._Lightning.jpg
    In 1983, Metallica travelled to Rochester, New York to record their first album, "Metal up Your Ass"However, after conflicts with the record label and the distributors' refusal to release an album with that name, it was renamed "Kill 'Em All". The band embarked on the Kill 'Em All For One tour with Raven to support the release.

    Metallica recorded its second studio album, Ride the Lightning. A French printing press mistakenly printed green covers for the album, which are now considered collectors' items. Other songs on the album include "For Whom the Bell Tolls", "Fade to Black", "Creeping Death" (which tells the biblical story of the Hebrews' exodus from slavery in Egypt, focusing on the various plagues that were visited on the Egyptians), and the instrumental "The Call of Ktulu", along with the title track Ride the Lightning. Mustaine received a writing credit for "Ride the Lightning" and "The Call of Ktulu".

    Master of Puppets, Damage Inc, and the Death of Cliff Burton

    http://www.nunnie.com/cliff-1.jpghtt...e_Inc_tour.jpg
    Elektra Records A&R director Michael Alago, and co-founder of Q-Prime Management Cliff Burnstein, attended a September 1984 Metallica concert. Impressed with what they saw, they signed Metallica to Elektra Records and made the band a client of Q-Prime Management.

    Metallica's burgeoning success was such that the band's Briti Metallica embarked on its first major European tour with Tank to an average crowd of 1,300. Returning to the U.S. marked a tour co-headlining with W.A.S.P. and Armored Saint supporting. Metallica played its largest show at the Monsters of Rock festival on August 17, 1985, with Bon Jovi and Ratt at Donington Park in England, playing in front of 70,000 people.

    Metallica's third studio album, Master of Puppets was recorded at Sweet Silence Studios and was released in March 1986. The album peaked at number 29 on the Billboard 200, and spent 72 weeks on the chart. The album was the band's first to be certified gold on November 4, 1986, and was certified six times platinum in 2003. Steve Huey of Allmusic considered the album "the band's greatest achievement". Following the release of the album, Metallica supported Ozzy Osbourne for a United States tour.

    Hetfield broke his wrist skateboarding down a hill and continued the tour performing vocals, with guitar technician John Marshall playing rhythm guitar.

    On September 27, 1986, during the European leg of Metallica's Damage Inc. tour, members played cards to see which bunk of the tour bus they would sleep in. (Thanks Combin0wnage)

    Burton won with an Ace of Spades and chose to sleep in Kirk Hammett's bunk. Around dawn near Dörarp, Sweden, the bus driver lost control and skidded, which caused the bus to flip several times. Ulrich, Hammett, and Hetfield sustained no serious injuries; however, bassist Burton was pinned under the bus and was killed instantly.

    James Hetfield recalls, "I saw the bus lying right on him. I saw his legs sticking out. I freaked. The bus driver, I recall, was trying to yank the blanket out from under him to use for other people. I just went, 'Don't fucking do that!' I already wanted to kill the guy."

    Burton's death left Metallica's future in doubt. The three remaining members decided that Burton would want them to carry on, and with the Burton family's blessings, the band sought a replacement.

    Roughly 40 people tried out for auditions including Hammett's childhood friend Les Claypool of Primus, and Jason Newsted, formerly of Flotsam and Jetsam. Newsted learned Metallica's entire setlist, and after the audition Metallica invited him to San Francisco. Hetfield, Ulrich, and Hammett decided that Newsted was the one to replace Burton. The members took it on themselves to "initiate" Newsted by tricking him into eating a ball of wasabi.

    Newsted was "hazed" for almost his entire time in the band, famously "playing bass" on ...And Justice For All, which many fans claim is an "empty" sounding album (with reference to the extremely quiet bass sound).

    …And Justice for All, Jason Newsted, Justice Tour


    http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_yxQoWLYiDr...metallica4.jpg
    "…And Justice for All", the group's first studio album since Burton's death, was released in 1988. The album was a commercial success, peaking at number six on the Billboard 200, the band's first album to enter the top 10.

    The album was certified platinum nine weeks after its release. Newsted's bass was purposely turned down on the album as a part of the continuous "hazing" he received, and his musical ideas were ignored (However, he did receive a writing credit on track one, "Blackened").There were complaints with the production; namely, Steve Huey of Allmusic noted Ulrich's drums were clicking more than thudding, and the guitars "buzz thinly".The Damaged Justice tour followed to promote the album.

    The lack of Bass in the album has even spawned a bootleg copy, with a fan playing bass. The Album is entitled "...And Justice For Jason"

    Following the release of …And Justice for All, Metallica released its debut music video for the song "One". The band performed the song in an abandoned warehouse, and footage was remixed with the film, "Johnny Got His Gun".

    James Hetfield, speaking on MTV Icon, stated his dismay when a long time fan spat in his face saying "You said you would never make a video!"

    The Black Album, a Year In the Life, and Bob Rock(1990–1993)


    http://www.metal-archives.com/images..._Xh0fdBc/0.jpg
    In October 1990, Metallica entered "One on One" studio in North Hollywood to record its next album. Bob Rock, who had worked with the bands The Cult, Bon Jovi, and Mötley Crüe, was hired as producer. Metallica (also known as "The Black Album") was remixed three times, cost $1 million, and amazingly ...ended three marriages.

    Although the release was stalled until 1991, "Metallica" debuted at number one on the Billboard 200. The album was responsible for bringing Metallica to the attention of the mainstream and has been certified 15 times platinum in the United States, which makes it the 25th highest-selling album in the country. The making of Metallica and the following tour was documented in "A Year and a Half in the Life of Metallica."

    On August 8, 1992, during the co-headlining GNR-Metallica Stadium Tour with Guns N' Roses, Hetfield suffered second and third degree burns to his arms, face, hands, and legs. There was confusion with the new pyrotechnics setup, which resulted with Hetfield walking into a 12-foot (3.7 m) flame during "Fade to Black". Newsted recalls Hetfield's skin was "bubbling like on The Toxic Avenger". Guitar technician John Marshall, who had previously filled in on rhythm guitar and was now playing in Metal Church, replaced Hetfield for the remainder of the tour as Hetfield was unable to play guitar, although he was able to sing. James Hetfield now has his famous flaming cards tattoo, with the words "Carpe Diem" ('Seize the Day' in Latin) on his left arm.

    Load, ReLoad, Garage Inc., and S&M

    http://alejo31.pbworks.com/f/metalli...metallica1.jpg
    After almost three years of touring to support The Black Album, including a headlining performance at Woodstock '94, Metallica returned to the studio to write and record its sixth studio album. The band took a break in the summer of 1995 and played three outdoor shows which included headlining Donington Park in the United Kingdom, supported by Slayer, Skid Row, Slash's Snakepit, Therapy?, and Corrosion of Conformity.

    The short tour was titled Escape From The Studio '95. The band spent roughly one year writing and recording new songs, resulting in the release of Load in 1996, which entered the Billboard 200 and ARIA Charts at number one, marking the band's second number one. The cover of Load was created by Andres Serrano, and was called Blood and Semen III. Serrano pressed a mixture of his own semen and bovine blood between sheets of plexiglass. The release marked a change in musical direction for the band and a new look with band members receiving haircuts. Many hardcore fans refused to listen to Metallica ever again, saying "They cut their fucking hair man!"

    During early production of the album, the band had produced enough material for a double album. It was decided that half of the songs were to be released, and the band would continue to work on the remaining songs and release them the following year. This resulted in the follow-up album, ReLoad. The cover was created by Serrano, this time using a mixture of blood and urine. ReLoad peaked at number one on the Billboard 200, and number two on the Top Canadian Album chart.

    Hetfield noted in the 2004 documentary film "Some Kind of Monster" that the songs on these albums were initially thought by the band to be of average quality, and were "polished and reworked" until judged to be releasable.

    In 1998, Metallica compiled a double album of cover songs titled "Garage Inc.." The first disc contained newly recorded covers by bands such as Diamond Head, Killing Joke, The Misfits, Thin Lizzy, Mercyful Fate, and Black Sabbath. The second disc featured the original The $5.98 E.P.: Garage Days Re-Revisited, which had become a scarce collectors' item.

    On April 21 and April 22, 1999, Metallica recorded two performances with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra conducted by Michael Kamen. Kamen, who had previously worked with producer Rock on "Nothing Else Matters", approached the band in 1991 with the idea of pairing Metallica's music with a symphony orchestra. Kamen and his staff of over 100 composed additional orchestral material for Metallica songs. Metallica wrote two new Kamen-scored songs for the event, "No Leaf Clover" and "-Human". The audio recording and concert footage were released in 1999 as the album and concert film S&M. It entered the Billboard 200 at number two, and the Australian ARIA charts and Top Internet Albums chart at number one.

    Napster controversy (2000–2001)

    http://ec.mashable.com/wp-content/up...41-panel05.jpg
    In 2000, Metallica discovered that a demo of its song "I Disappear", which was supposed to be released in combination with the Mission: Impossible II soundtrack, was receiving radio airplay. Tracing the source of the leak, the band found the file on the Napster peer-to-peer file-sharing network, and also found that the band's entire catalogue was freely available.[41] Legal action was initiated against Napster with Metallica filing a lawsuit at the U.S. District Court, Central District of California, alleging that Napster violated three areas of the law: copyright infringement, unlawful use of digital audio interface device, and the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act.

    Metallica hired online consulting firm NetPD to monitor the Napster service for a weekend. A list of 335,435 Napster users who were believed to be sharing Metallica's music was compiled, and the 60,000 page document was delivered to Napster's office as Metallica requested the users be banned from the service. The users were banned, and rap artist Dr. Dre joined the lawsuit against Napster, which resulted in an additional 230,142 Napster users banned.

    At the 2000 MTV Video Music Awards, Ulrich appeared in a skit with host Marlon Wayans that blasted the idea of using Napster to share music. Marlon played a college student sitting in his dorm room listening to Metallica's "I Disappear". Ulrich walked in and asked for an explanation. On receiving Wayans' excuse that using Napster was just "sharing", Lars retorted that Marlon's idea of sharing was "borrowing things that were not yours without asking." He called in the Metallica road crew, who proceeded to confiscate all of Wayans' belongings, leaving him almost nude in an empty room. Napster creator Shawn Fanning responded later in the ceremony by presenting an award wearing a Metallica shirt, saying, "I borrowed this shirt from a friend. Maybe, if I like it, I'll buy one of my own."

    Newsted's departure and St. Anger (2001–2005)

    http://www.reelingreviews.com/metall...s_hetfield.jpg
    As plans were being made to enter the recording studio, Newsted left the band on January 17, 2001.

    His statement revealed his departure was based on "private and personal reasons, and the physical damage I have done to myself over the years while playing the music that I love."

    During a Playboy interview with Metallica, Newsted revealed intentions he wanted to release an album with his side project, Echobrain. Hetfield was against the idea and said, "When someone does a side project, it takes away from the strength of Metallica" and a side project is "like cheating on your wife in a way".

    Newsted countered his statement by saying Hetfield recorded vocals for a song in the film South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut, and appears on two Corrosion of Conformity albums. Hetfield replied, "My name isn't on those records. And I'm not out trying to sell them", and pondered questions such as, "Where would it end? Does he start touring with it? Does he sell shirts? Is it his band?"

    In April 2001, filmmakers Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky began following Metallica to document the recording process of the next studio album. Over two years, more than 1,000 hours of footage was recorded. On July 19, 2001, before preparations to enter the recording studio, Hetfield entered rehab due to "alcoholism and other addictions".

    All recording plans were put on hiatus and the band's future was in doubt. However, when Hetfield returned on December 4, 2001, the band returned to the recording studio and Hetfield was required to work four hours a day, noon to 4 PM, and spend the rest of his time with his family. The footage recorded by Berlinger and Sinofsky was compiled into the documentary, "Some Kind of Monster", which premiered at the Sundance film festival. In the documentary, Newsted described his former bandmates' decision to hire a therapist to help solve their problems which they could have solved on their own as "really fucking lame and weak".

    Metallica held auditions for Newsted's permanent replacement in early 2003, after St Anger 's completion, for which Bob Rock recorded bass. Bassists that auditioned included Pepper Keenan, Jeordie White, Scott Reeder, Eric Avery, Danny Lohner, and Chris Wyse. Following three months of auditions, Robert Trujillo, formerly of Suicidal Tendencies and Ozzy Osbourne's band, was chosen as the new bassist.

    As Metallica moved on, Newsted joined Canadian thrash metal band Voivod in 2002, and was Trujillo's replacement in Osbourne's band during the 2003 Ozzfest tour, which included Voivod as part of the touring bill.[53]

    In June 2003, Metallica's eighth studio album, St. Anger, debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, and drew mixed reaction from critics.

    Ulrich's "steely" sounding snare drum, and the absence of guitar solos received particular criticism.

    Brent DiCrescenzo of Pitchfork Media described it as "an utter mess". However, Blender magazine called it the "grimiest and grimmest of the band's Bob Rock productions", and New York Magazine called it "utterly raw and rocking". The title track, "St. Anger", won the Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance in 2004, and was used as the official theme song for WWE's SummerSlam 2003.

    Before the band's set at the 2004 Download Festival in England, Ulrich was rushed to hospital with a mysterious illness, and was unable to perform. Hetfield searched for volunteers at the last minute to replace Ulrich. Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo, and Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison volunteered. Lombardo performed the songs "Battery" and "The Four Horsemen", Ulrich's drum technician Flemming Larsen performed "Fade to Black", with Jordison performing the remainder of the set.[58] Having toured for two years in support of St. Anger on the Summer Sanitarium Tour 2003 and the Madly in Anger with the World tour, with multi-platinum rockers Godsmack in support, Metallica took a break from performing and spent most of 2005 with friends and family. However, for two shows on November 13, 2005, and November 15, 2005, Metallica opened for The Rolling Stones at the AT&T Park in San Francisco.


    Death Magnetic (2006 onward)


    http://music.unrealitytv.co.uk/wp-co...netic-tour.jpg
    In 2006, Metallica announced on its official website that after 15 years, long-time producer Bob Rock was stepping down and would not be producing Metallica's next studio album. Metallica chose to work with producer Rick Rubin, who has produced albums for the bands Danzig, Slayer, Slipknot and System of a Down. Metallica set the release date for the album Death Magnetic as September 12, 2008, and they filmed a music video for the first single "The Day That Never Comes".

    Death Magnetic debuted at number one in several countries. Selling 490,000 units in the United States to debut at number one, Metallica became the first band to have five consecutive studio albums debut at number one in the history of the Billboard 200. After a week of its release, Death Magnetic remained at number one on the Billboard 200, the European album chart, and became the fastest selling album in Australia for 2008.

    Death Magnetic stayed at number one on the Billboard 200 album chart for three consecutive weeks. Metallica became the only artist, aside from Jack Johnson with the release of the album Sleep Through the Static, to remain on the Billboard 200 for three consecutive weeks at number one in 2008.

    Death Magnetic had also remained at number one on Billboard's Hard Rock, Modern Rock/Alternative and Rock album charts for five consecutive weeks. Internationally, the album peaked at number one in 32 countries including the United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia.

    Death Magnetic is a return by Metallica to their mid-eighties heavy/thrash metal roots. It is more similar to Master of Puppets and ...And Justice for All rather than their more recent albums.

    In November 2008, Metallica came to the end of their record deal with Warner Bros., and the band is now considering their options for the future and, according to Ulrich, one of their options is to release their next album through the internet. Recently, James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett were added to "Chop Shop's" list of "Top 100 Most Complete Guitar Players of All Time" at number fourteen and twenty-six, respectively.

    On January 14, 2009, it was announced that Metallica would be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on April 4, 2009.Former bassist Jason Newsted (who left the band in 2001), would perform with the band at the ceremony. Initially, it was announced that the matter had been discussed, and that current bassist Robert Trujillo had agreed not to play, as he "wanted to see the Black Album band".

    However, during the band's set of "Master of Puppets" and "Enter Sandman", both Trujillo and Newsted were on stage. Ray Burton, the father of late bassist Cliff Burton accepted the honour on his behalf. Metallica also invited Dave Mustaine to take part in the induction ceremony, but he declined, citing his touring commitments in Europe.

    Phew, so, i made this thread as the old one was not updated much and had lost steam, hope you guys don't mind.

    Please discuss Metallica, the band, members, fans, concerts, albums, songs, rivalry (maybe :P), and anything else Metallica related!

    Please just give me a quick comment if i missed / fucked anything up. And remember guys

    METAL UP YOUR ASS!
    I'm assuming this a metallica liking thread if so, Metallica are awesome... if it's a hating one then you can all burn in hell because metallica are great!

    Yes this is a Pro-Metallica thread. We all love them here.

    Wait, is that a bass-dubbed version? I thought there was something wrong with my headphones for second there.
    Yes it is. It's from the bootleg ...And Justice for Jason.

    Hate threads aren't allowed. Also nice quote man

    Edited:

    I meant the lyrics (excluding instrumentals of course)
    I'm sure that just about every song in the world with lyrics contains the letter 'e'.

    I know i asked this in the last thread, but what direction do you reckon Metallica would have gone in, if no one had died that night?

    It's weird thinking about it, Justice might not have been written? Black Album probably too... and pretty much everything since?

    Thoughts?

    I heard AJFA was written because the band didn't believe there was enough justice for their fallen comrade.

    Gahh, everytime someone says St. Angst instead of St. Anger I think of the photoshop of the cover with the hand holding a grumpy red dick.

    I don't know. It verges on my favourite Metallica album every now and again, just because of the emotion that's pretty obvious in the songs.

    I will not accept bad mouthing of Metallica dcalde :P

    Just found this, it's a Dutch punkband doing a Metallica medley. It's pretty good.
