Every time Metallica goes on tour, they have to find a gimmick to help sell more tickets. The previous years it was the ‘Big Four’ motif, this year it’s the Black Album. You know, the self-titled album fans nicknamed ‘The Black Album’ because that’s when their souls turned black and they hired a poppy producer to sell more albums…
Anyway, it’s been 20 years since they
sold out released that album, and even though this year would mark it’s 21st birthday, not 20th, they decided to play all of it.
Well, two shows (Rock In Rio and Rock Am Ring) have been streamed live via the internet, and you can now see Rock Am Ring after the jump, cause the other one is nowhere to be found in its entirety.
Why would anyone want to meet Lars? I can see why some would want to escape him, but the guy in this movie wants so bad to meet him, a movie has been made about him.
“Mission To Lars” tells the story of Tom Spicer, an autistic Metallica fan who just wants to meet Lars Ulrich — and the journey he makes to do so.
There are so many jokes I could do right now, and trust me, I’m trying really hard to control myself. I’m just wondering if this guy was the inspiration for the name ‘Lulu.’
Okay, I know, I’m going to hell, but the movie does seem pretty touching… Hell, it made Lemmy cry.
Metallica‘s own festival has a pretty shitty lineup, but now things get even crazier. James will host some kind of car/bike show or something.
Watch the video above and find out more about it. I got distracted by the comma hanging from James’ chin. What is that? He looks like a villain from Wild Wild West.
You know, when people mock, criticize, or even question some religions, people go apeshit over it. But how does one blasphemous motherfucker get away with ruining Metallica’s self-titled album by adding Jay-Z’s poems over it?
“RawHustle.com links up with BamBeatz which is a very talented up and coming Hip Hop producer from Miami. Last year was Metallica’s ‘Black’ album 2oth year Anniversary and Jay-Z’s ’Black’ album 10th year Anniversary.BamBeatz is dropping a mixtape of both black albums together (Metallica & Jay-Z). Here is his first leak off his “Double Black” mixtape dropping in Spring.”

This is the song, if you really want a combination of ear cancer and hearing AIDS (as in HIV, yo):
At least they only butchered the Black album. If they touch Master of Puppets, shit is gonna get real, son. WHAAAT? WESSIDE!111
As we all know, Dave joined Metallica on stage at their 30th anniversary shows… Dave seems very happy about that, since he keeps saying how great it was. Which is cool, considering the way he talked about Metallica a few years ago…
“I think you can see from the way the guys lit up that it was mutually beneficial for everybody. We all expected something magical to happen, and it did. We were playing stuff off the first record that I’d written in my teenage years. It was a blast.”

Aww, Dave is in love. <3
