Fucking Metallica?

The rest of the class of inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is top notch, though.



  • Don't hate.

    If they had died in a plane crash in 1991 or so, they probably would have been inducted already...

  • Really? You're saying Metallica shouldn't be in RRHF?

  • I would put Husker Du in the Hall light years before Metallica.

  • True...

  • Also The Fall, and Wire, and Television, and The Fleshtones, and Siouxsie and the Banshees, for starters.

    But that's just me.

    And didn't one of the Metallica founders die in a bus crash or something back in the day?

  • You know, some people say we sold out. And we do. Every show.
    - James Hetfield MTV interview late 1990s.

    I got rid of my metallica cda shortly thereafter

  • Yeah, their original bassist was killed during the Master of Puppets tour in Sweden.

  • I think the inclusion of Run-DMC somewhat mitigates the abject wackness of Metallica.

  • Looks like you take the "Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame" more seriously than I do?

    I thought opening the "Hall" was just one more nail in the coffin of rock.

    What's next? College courses on rock history?

    That's how they killt jazz, ain't it?

    I want to thank Metallica right here for turning me on to Napster. Their incessant whining uncovered Napster for total noobs like me--when if they had kept their wealthy mouths shut, it might've been a few more weeks before the word got out.

  • with the recent death of ron asheton, i thought the stooges would've trumped metallica.

  • T - I think you have to take the Hall witha modicum of seriousness. When we're gone and our grandchildren wonder about our musical tastes, the hall will be one of the places they turn to.

    And they'll get fucking Metallica.

    L - I think voting was completed before Asheton died.
