Since Metallica started back in the early 1980s, James Hetfield has been developing one of the most distinctive vocal styles in hard rock and metal.
His guttural roar has become a staple of the Metallica sound, defining heavy metal singing for generations to come. He also says the word "yeah" a lot. Like, a hell of a lot.
Hetfield's "yeahs" have been a staple of every Metallica record from "Kill 'Em All
" to "Death Magnetic
" (and no, "Lulu
" was not a Metallica album, it was just a bad dream we collectively had... pay it no mind).
Now, having realized Hetfield's ability for expressing the affirmative at every available opportunity, some smart pup has decided to take every Hetfield "yeah" ever and compile them into one three minute bout of utter insanity.
It sounds something like this:
So there you go, the complete evolution of James Hetfield's "yeah". Points to everyone who was able to identify all of the songs that these "yeahs" came from. Minus points if you were only able to identify the ones from "St. Anger".
