MASSIVE LULZ.

http://doublecrosswebzine.blogspot.com/2010/05/james-hetfield-of-metallica-on-straight.html

I got a message from my cousin Bob today telling me about the new issue of So What, which is Metallica's fan club magazine. Bob told me that there was a piece in the mag with James Hetfield talking about his tattoos. What surprised the hell out of both of us was that James recently got himself a straight edge tattoo… yeah, you read the right, a straight edge tattoo. Here's a couple interesting excerpts from the interview. Thanks to Bob for scanning and sending this over to me. -Tim DCXX

SO WHAT: (Caught by a tattoo)… that's a new one, right? Sorry-

James: Straight edge? Yeah.

SO WHAT: You're not getting away with the last comment, incidentally. We'll have to go back to that. But anyways, the straight edge X.

James: Right. Well, straight edge, this was certainly a design of my own. You know, the old straight edge tattoo, it's just like a big X on your hand. No drinking, and I don't drink. It's like when you go into the clubs, they put and X on your hand…

SO WHAT: Right. It's because you haven't shown your ID.

James: And I don't need drink or drugs. That's straight edge life. Obviously I'm not straight edge - a true, hardcore straight edge has never had any of it in her or her whole life. But I'm a reborn straight edge.

SO WHAT: I always associated Minor Threat and Ian MacKaye and those guys with straight edge punk. That's what they were all about.

James: Absolutely. There's some hardcore people that are straight edge from birth. So this was my take on the straight edge X, you know? Straight razors. A straight edge, is what that was all about.


Stolen from b9. So. Funny.

He hasn't been out of rehab for alcohol abuse long enough for me to take this seriously.

EDIT: Well, and he's James Hetfield.

He also has a giant Jesus sleeve.

EDIT: Giant Jesus was the name of a folk punk side project I played bass in for 2 months

Quote by James Hetfield

And I've drunk that, I've drunk this
I've spewed up on a pint of piss
So what, so what
I've had skag, I've had speed
I've jacked up until I bleed
So what, so what
So what, so what, you boring little cunt

My favorite part is how it says "STR8 EDGE"
Because he can't be ****ed to get the "aight"

I thought the whole idea of post-hardcore was to mix techno and hardcore.....

So how long until James Hetfield gets beaten up in Utah?
No gods, no countries, no masters.

Metallica/Earth Crisis split coming out soon.


you know, if Metallica actually put out a real hardcore record, I have a feeling it could actually be decent.

this would be lame if he was say, in his 20's still, but he's obviously matured a lot. FFS he has a wife and kids. But hey people can only put on a good show if they're drunk right?

It would probably be their best album in the past 20 years.
I'm an asshole.

wat? I'm confused, that doesn't sound familiar and google says its a metallica song...
#35
It's an Anti Nowhere League song. And the fact that Metallica covered it is all the point Floyd needed. You don't cover songs you don't like or connect to in a sense, unless it's an ironic pop cover. In that case you're connecting to the inner hipster douchbaggery that compels you to cover in a shitty song because your ego won't allow you to believe your version of it will be anything less than pure genius.

Can't say I'm a huge fan anymore, but I definitely used to be when I was in high school.

I was heavily influenced by James Hetfield when I first started playing. His style of picking mainly, sounds so ****ing heavy.
