    Pickin' on series / iron horse have some good blue grass covers. But at the same time they could also be a lot better they weren't as funky fun as normal blue grass when it gets fun with the knee slaps yeeeoooooooowwwww

    Ahahahahaha I saw Metallica two weeks ago Saturday. My tickets were originally $83 each for nosebleeds. I didn't pay for the tickets so I won't say how much was actually spent, but know it was WELL more than that, since the tickets were purchased a month ago. And I am SO totally willing to pay at least $100 to $150 for the same seats again if they come around next time. It was a fucking amazing show

    Lame, it's a really REALLY awesome show. Seeing them was on my bucket list, so I'm so super stoked I got to check off a bucket list item. I'm wearing my tour tee today

    Yeah but I've already seen them and I'm not travelling half the world to stand with 100,000 people. That's not worth 7000€

    It's not very metal to sue your own fans when at that point you had a few platinum albums. It reeked of top 40 pop. They lost all their evil/underground whatever you want to call what makes an act metal street cred.
     

  11. Which was like over 20 years ago.

    Anyone give a crap anymore

    Napster doesnt exist anymore.

    The core of Metallica fans are now soccer moms and dads

    That’s cheap. I’m not even trying to be snarky. It’s Metallica, a full scale stadium production, and an opening band that could do 10,000 seats themselves.

    If being metal is cool, I’d rather be rich.

    @Orison, Captain Cannabis is dead.

    Yeah, Metallica were true Black Metal back in the day. Am I evil?

    Lol some peeps just love to deliberately misportray the meaning of other people s posts it seems.
    As you notice UA was quoting PR, who was making a reasonable assertion on pre 90s Metallica and the far less inspiring and passionate sounding later Metallica. One big reason they became less sympathetic for a certain kind of metalfan is stuff like that Napster shit while at the same time taking notice of Ulrichs expensive art collection, that docu with their band shrink (lol) etc. etc.

    Yes, they started 'trve' as pathetic as this wording may sound :p ;) (same with 'being metal' of course) as a real and energetic thrash metal band, that even innovated the metalgenre. They don't come across like that anymore since like the release of Load for petes sake.

    Maybe you just moved on from metal if you insist you don't get what he means.

    Sounds like a mainstream pop act to me. As most bands that can qualify as 'stadium rock'

    Yes, absolutely.

    Better than waking up at 9

    I can't think of one Heavy Metal Band that has reached mainstream success which hasn't gone on to make a more Accessible Sound:

    Black Sabbath
    Megadeth
    Avenged Sevenfold
    Mastodon

    Slayer is in the back of my mind as a possible exception but I don't really listen to them.

    Black Sabbath also was pretty much dying slowly after Dio. Not much fans were happy with their albums.

    I never digged bands like Slayer, Megadeth and Avenged Sevenfold, so I can't really make an informed statement about how they're changed as i was never interested in their sound in the first place. And have not followed Mastodon in recent years. But that a bands sound is progressing over time into something more accessible is not an issue by definition. Same that its not an issue by default that a metal band gets rich. If they manage to do so at the cost of what made them so good though... and that's why a lot of metal appreciators lost interest and appreciation for Metallica it seems.
