I find it so stupid when people say sell-out or that their music changed.
jesus they age, they change, the music will change along with it. who gives a shit who they endorse/ are endorsed by... music is music. If you like a band based on something other then the music then you're missing out.

rawr!
I liked metallica since the 80s thanks to my older sister who was a big fan. Ive always liked them, i like their new stuff too. It's good music, fun to listen to loud. My favorite song is probably Orion because in my opinion it's the best one to play at maximum volume.

Exactly. I don't understand why people can't grasp that. :/ & not just Metallica, but nearly all bands who have been around for a while.

Changing your style does not constitute selling out. Most bands evolve in one way or another. Compare "The Fragile" to "The Downward Spiral" - that's evolving. Compare "Meet the Beatles" to "Sgt. Pepper's" - that's evolving.

Changing your style to sell more records does constitute selling out. The Black album is not "evolving." It's slower, simple, and radio friendly. Lars is a goddamned metronome on the black album with a random cymbol thrown in here and there. Up until the Black album, Metallica had released one music video (for One) that was very simple. With the Black album, they started pumping out traditional music videos. Metallica had made it a point to reject mainstream media before, but now it was okey-dokey.

I'm not as hard on Load era and beyond in regards to music, that's pursuing a different direction all be it not thrash metal. They made it a point they were different band, and I think that's fair. The Black album they were masquerading around as the same band when they obviously weren't.

Being outspoken hyporcites about music rights also constitutes as selling out. This is what pissed me off. Napster was godsend to unknown bands in a then radio-MTV controlled system. All of sudden, all the underground acts could get attention and spread their music easily. Naturally, this medium was used to spread popular music as well. Now a days, Myspace and Youtube (and a myriad of other sites) has filled this hole, but back then things were different. Remember Metallica became popular not through radio or MTV, but illegal tape trading which was a huge thing in the early metal scene. Metallica didn't seem to have any problem with artist's rights on their rise to fame. Once on top, and having distanced themselves from the scene that supported them, they attacked Napster. I'm not saying they were right or wrong in what they were saying, I'm saying they weren't in a position to say anything about it due to their history.

Oh and they're liars to boot. They used to talk so much shit about how "clean" they were when it came to drugs. Most in the underground knew this was horse shit thanks to groupies spilling their guts. Lars was a notorious coke user before they went on VH1 and started talking all that shit. But the mainstream praised them all for it. Now it's come out how into drugs all of them were.

They were dicks to Jason Newstead as well - a perfectly decent guy who thought he got the gig of a lifetime but was treated like shit for years.

Most metal heads now a days either boycott Metallica in general or just try to think of them as two different bands, and the later is my approach.

i think all Metallica songs are very good, but "One" is just a bit over the scale in my mind.
