I am even with you on Justice. While there are some songs that I absolutely cherish (wait....let me pull out the album...): Blackened, ummm...Shortest Straw, I can't tell you how much it hurt when they just didn't "let loose" with something like Harvester of Sorrow.

Check this out. I even bought this stupid double CD just for Metallica's version of "Stone Cold Crazy!" Don't know if it shows through the pic but I spent almost $30 for Michael Feinstein, John Zorn, FASTER FUCKIN' PUSSYCAT and some 17 others for one song!! Yeah, I WAS a diehard fan. Makes me wanna puke now. On that note, anyone want a couple of unreleased Tracy Chapman songs? HAAAAA!!!!

Yeah I know it spapad....the next album "The Black Album" was the nail in the coffin.  I know some people on here like this album,but was NOT Metallica at all. 

It was far far far too commercial and Hetfield with a pretty-boy hair-sprayed curls for the Enter Sandman lol!  That whole album was so un-Metallica-like....

I remember when that was released and thinking to myself....this band is going down the drain.....but I still thought that someday they may change back......

and then the "Load" album came out...and I said to myself..."This band is done,end of story". And that was in 95' I think? Wow,what a lame outfit they really

have turned into.  I would go as far as saying that Metallica is the WORSE disappointment in "MUSIC HISTORY"....out of all bands of all genres.

I'll second that! They went straight down the drain after "And Justice for all" Who knew they only had that little faith in their craft and more of an eye for mainstream money.

lol! Yeah I hear ya remember like it was yesterday when Metallica was anything but a "joke"...and as you know they were a hard serious metal band.

I remember bitching about the 1988 "And Justice For All" album,just because they crossed over and did a video(One)...and how it wasn't as good as thier first

3 albums Kill "Em All,Ride The Lightning and Master Of Puppets.......but looking back now...after seeing and hearing everything that came out after And Justice...

it makes "And Justice For All" look like a jewl and makes me I only knew how much worse this band was going to get,I would of enjoyed the

And Justice album a little bit more for god's sake!!! lol!!!!

Oh, AMEN again, bro! "Used to be a force, not a joke." Hit the nail right on the head for me.

I always buy anything I like to support (audio, video, games) but I had a buddy pick up the St. Anger CD for about $1 USD on the streets of México. I should have bought a Coke here instead. Like someone posted somewhere on the seems like the killed Kirk! What a waste of time and a buck!

Yeah Metallark...I used to like Metallica back in the 80's,I heard Ride The Lightning the week it was released 1984 and of course 1986 Master Of Puppets

but that was Cliff era.....he would not of been with this Metallica of today....I think he would of quit long ago.  Its sad because they used to be a force,not a joke.

Yeah, I am with you J.D. on Metallica. Never understood their climb in the metal music scene. Never will. I will say no more.

"As if you know what metal is all about" go back to your bedroom and jerk off.

Metal is all about popularity. It's about rabble rousing and showing off just how well rebellion can be faked. Rock, Metal, Punk, Pop...same shit with a different name. Metallica or Ozzy, same circus. Career musicians and entertainers, when shit starts they're the first ones running for the exit.

We'll take your word for it I.M.P.!   And yeah...metal doesn't need needs "loyalty" from its elite fanbase.

And the shit band "Metallica" is a sad representation of "metal".  The most metal they have been in 20 years is when

they invited King Diamond on stage to play old Mercyful Fate classics,other than that....there is no "metal" left in "Metallica".

That band makes me sick to my freaking stomach they are so lame....I absolutely HATE James Hetfield,...HATE his guts.

To him...old school metal is a mear "joke" as he sports his flip flop sandles and nerd thick glasses and Green Day sweater.

I never get tired of slamming Metallica because they deserve to be slammed....I wish they would just quit and spare us.

And on metal ever becoming "mainstream," Halford's reply?  "Not if I have anything to do with it!"

Tis a rough quote from memory, could anyone possibly provide that interview?  I can't remember where I saw it.  :-/

THAT is an effing cool image, J.D.  The Halford montage.  (I think that's the proper word, lol)

Anyway, my two cents on popularity:  fuck that!  Look at bands that "make it" big with the "popularity" thing-one example-Metallica.  What the hell is going on with that "band"?  There are tons of examples of bands that've hit huge peaks in popularity and then crashed and burned.  Metal's not about popularity.  Metal is about independence.  Metal is a bunch of things, but popularity is mostly a side affect.  A band that gets popular does so mostly on the basis of things done BEFORE that band got popular anyway. 

On the flip side, in my opinion, a band that's gained huge amounts of fans shouldn't be looked down on for that simple fact.  Iron Maiden's more popular with the kids for some reason, I can't explain it.  When I heard Dickinson's voice, I had to get more albums.  Same with Geoff Tate.  For a long time, the classic rock station I grew up listening to would play about half of the songs off of Empire-possibly the most commercial and pop metal album ever.  The same with Metallica's Black Album.  I grew up with these albums, I loved hearing the songs, but these are the "accessable" albums from bands.  Once hearing it, 50 listens later, does it stick?  "Run to the Hills" is no match compared to "Still Life."  Living After Midnight is a fun song, everyone likes it, everyone knows it, but what of Beyond the Realms of Death?  Only a metal head, and more specifically a Priest fan would know and appreciate that song.  Popularity has nothing to do with quality, shouldn't be used as a measuring stick in comparing bands.

Here's a funny thing.  I had in my possession a tape of Screaming for Vengeance as a freshman in high school.  Did I like it at the time?  Nope!  I was heavy into Scorpions, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Uriah Heep, Alice in Chains, and Metallica at the time.  I heard You Got Another Thing Coming on the radio a zillion times, so I didn't really think anything of it.  It wasn't until I was handed a copy of Priest's greatest hits as a Junior that my eyes were opened.  What were the songs that "hooked" me?  Number one?  Turbo.  LOL.  It was the most unique song off that disc, and I'd never heard it before.  A close number two was  Metal Meltdown, which had that ripping beginning, Diamonds and Rust had a neat vibe to it, and The Green Manilishi also stuck with me.  From there, l was a fan.

Hey Darryn!! Have a drink on me!! Cheers!!

Well, like most here, I AM a Maiden fan (pre-Fear, to be sure) but I have absolutely NO clue what your comment to me actually means. Perhaps you could dumb it down a bit but it seems to contraditct itself in one sentence.

To help. I WAS a fan of Paul but also feel that he was insulting and even is a sad version of his former self. To make fun of Rob while singing his song is just wrong. Plain and simple. Your comment makes absolutely no sense to me.

Why don't you two just openly profess your love for J.D. and get over it?! Tell him how you want to hold and carress him! For if you don't have a big massive crush on him then you must just envy him because he has something you don't, and never will.
Class, and respect from the membership. Yes just fall to you knees and openly worship him, you know you want to! Do you have a shrine built to him in some secret back bedroom? I bet 'cha do!
