Metallica is tied with PJ for my favorite band.

Seen them 5 times and was even on the rail Jan 29th 2009 at Nassau Coliseum. James actually knelt down in front of me, and gave me the Horns.. it was AWESOME.

Here are some of my favorite songs...

  • Nice thread :twisted:

    I seen Metallica a couple times in Philly. 11/11/97 they had a free concert and summer sanitarium in 03. Free concert kicked ass,2nd concert was complete shit because i was stuck in the nose bleeds at the vet stadium.

    Metallica from early 90's IMO tops pearl jam.... Nowadays though ? Not so much. James singing is pretty poor

    Could Pearl Jam do a show for $19.81 like Metallica is doing. Wait, its for 4 shows at that price and we are paying $180 and can hardly get tickets. I will be there and love them, but Metallica has the upper hand on this show idea.
  • Pleas no comparing in this thread.


    I do agree it's awesome.

    While I am a fan of Metallica's music, they are absolute douchebags for the way they treated Newsted. That's got to be said. Until it Sleeps, Hero of the Day and their version of Whiskey in the Jar are incredibly good songs.

    I'm reading Enter Night right now. Very detailed biography.
    This show, another show, a show here and a show there.

    I WENT BALLISTIC.
    For a long time it was PJ and Metallica alone at the top of my list....so when Bonnaroo '08 was announced I went ape shit...had to go....Metallica Friday night, PJ Saturday night....how could it get any better than that. It was amazing.
    The Memory Remains is one of my favorite tunes and when they did it Bonnaroo it was mind blowing. When the crowd continues the chant at the end, it was almost like a religious experience...that many people singing in unison. (Same thing with the crowd singing the first part of Better Man the next night)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I1WB11wykZc

    ....And Justice For All is definitely my favorite studio album. Then I would say black album and Master of Puppets followed by Ride the Lightning. I love Death Magnetic but I always have a problem putting newer stuff in its proper place with the classic stuff no matter what band it is.

    Hard to believe they've been kicking ass for 30 years. I remember getting a tape of Ride the Lightning when I was in sixth, mabye seventh grade, and I was sold. Long live Metallica.
    But, i must admit, James gets a bit corny at time during the shows. Sometimes he makes me cringe. :lol:
    All I have to do is revel in the everyday....then do it again tomorrow

    They say every sin is deadly but I believe they may be wrong...I'm guilty of all seven and I don't feel too bad at all

    I have seen the band many times (12 I think...best show, the day after they played Woodstock II) but one of my most vivid memory was the Monsters Of Rock concert at RFK in DC. I think it was 1990, they came on before Guns & Roses and when they played Harvestor Of Sorrow. There was nothing that could top seeing 55,000 headbanging as ONE to that song. Back then it seems peeps grew there hair long and it all looked like one giant mop head trying frantically to ring itself dry.

    It was awesome and they were 10 times better than G&R. I have not seen them though since the Load/Reload tours.

    I remember when they were new - my best friend and I going through albums at the record store (this was back when we bought albums based on what the album cover looked like) and coming across Kill Em All. We bought it and were just blown away. We saw them on the Ride The Lightning tour at the Tower Theater in Phila.

    Fast forward to just a few years ago, my sons finding all my old cassette tapes and listening to Metallica. I took them to see the Death Magnetic tour show in Philly in January 2008 and we had such a great time. I have to say that they have become a much better live band over the years, they really know how to do a show right!

    I can't say that I really listen to them to much anymore, but seeing them live is fantastic. They are truly one of the best. One of the bands I grew up listening to.

    Metallica was my first concert(s). April 15 and 16 1997 in Cincinnati. I was 16 and it was the first time I was able to actually talk my mom into letting me go to a concert. I've seen them 5 times now and every show kicked ass, even the St. Anger tour.

    I love Metallica. If it wasn't for them, I might not be into music as much as I am.

    Saw them for the 5th time last month. The highlight so far was seeing them pull out The Outlaw Torn in London, 2009. It was literally jaw-dropping.

    Favourite albums? Hard to look past Ride, Master and Justice. But I have a big soft spot for Load, actually.
    And I planted my bolo knife in the neck of mad John Finn. I took his wretched life.
    Now I'm over near the bandstand, every hand moving on John Finn's wife...

    Metallica
    METALLICA, What the fuck can i possibly say about them that hasn't ever been said before.
    been a massive fan ever since i first heard ride the lightning in 1997 i think it was, around about the same time as garage days re-revisted was released.
    first saw them at Edinburgh playhose 1998 on the justice tour, and if they hadn't already blown me away before, they did that night... the raw energy was amazing. saw them again the year after at the secc, and was almost at the front, and just an arms reach from my heros, i even caught james plastic beer cup, which i sadly admit i kept, put it in a plastic see through envolope, and hung it on my bedroom wall along with my loads of metallica posters, infact when i lived at hopme on side of my bedroom wall was completly full of posters, overlapping each other and in a big miss-match.

    i've seen them god knows how many times now, and i must admit, although i still loved the band and they're music i started to lose a little faith in the band around the time and tours of re-load, and as everyone know the fact that the band become one of the main players in the music industry, it was also the thing that almost destroyed them, i remember one download festival, where i was dissapointed, because it seemed as though they were playing by numbers, and lost the hunger... BUT I NEVER GAVE UP ON THEM. I was lucky enought to get a ticket for when they played the glasgow burrowland in 1996 when they added the date only 2 weeks before the uk european tour kicked off. and was amazing to see them soo close up in a small venue.

    I'm happy to say my faith in the band was restored, because i feel now after the release of st anger it felt as if the band had re-found their hunger, even if loads of people hate that album, and now with Death magnetic and the following tours, the boys are back where they belong. and seeing them at download( the one where lars didn't turn up due to illness) then at glasgow secc in 2009, made me realise i was glad that I never gave up on them, and kept my faith.
    I would say Metallica are my second fav band now, next to Pearl jam, but its probably 45-55.

    here is a few pics that i took during the show at the secc in 2009

    The band really does have quite a few classics and this one is one of my favorites.....speaking of intros to songs METALLICA has many intros that are masterpieces. Love the ringing of the bells.

    you are sooo right my friend, and this next one might not be considered one of their named classics but to me it is.

    I was hardcore Metallica after hearing Puppets in high school, and have grown to Love And justice every year a little more, just amazing up to that.....then Bob Rock hit, and though I did like the black album and it has some pure fucking metal up your ass songs, parts of the stuff up to his departure I think, turned them into the thing they always hated, polished pop metal. And WTF no guitar solos St. Anger? Kirk is a solo God and you are gonna take that out saying it had become a cliche? Fuck you Bob, go produce a Brett Michael Album you shit bag. St. Anger could have been incredible with some solos and chaning the drums to not sound like paint buckets. Death Magnetic was a refreshing change from that sound, but to me the "old Metallica" is dead and burried, and the new version is old fuckers just hanging onto a name.

    Now that being said they ALWAYS tear down the house live. Kirk Hammet and Lars are unreal live. You can hate on Lars all you want, but he fucking pounds the skins.

    I think the soap opera that became Metallica turned me off them as I have not seen them since 97 (Lollapolooza) with Soundgarden, another band that left the scene shortly after as well. I did find Some Kind of MOnster (and I love this song) interesting, but what a bunch of fucking whiners they had become, the very type of people they fucking flicked off and told to go fuck theirself in the 80's....I did like when they dumped the shrink who thought he was somehow in the band though. When they cut their hair to look modern, they ended up looking more like Cuban Pimps than Metal Gods, really made me rethink them as a band. Image became more important than ripping our faces off with guitar/bass and drum solos.

    I do thank Bob Rock immensely as if he had not pussified Metallica I never ever would have become the Pearl Jam fan I am today. as circa 93/94 I needed to fill the void....and Once, Deep, why go, and porch were metalesque enough for me to litsen to ten over and over, led to my first midnight sale in college (Vs.) the Chicago 94 show, leading into the fanclub, Milwaukee 95, and Soldier Field. SF made it official, Pearl Jam was number one from that point on, never looked back since.

    Long live Metallica and their impact, bless them all for sticking it out despite being on the brink countless times, but I'll take my cup of Pearl Jam now any day of the week unless they are going to play Master Of Puppets in full again.

    they went from this:
