Shhhhh. Don't say that.

You're not allowed to say that you like metallica on Ug.

or nickel back or cold play

We're only supposed to like Dave Grohl and really obscure prog bands.

^ I've just realised if you say Simple Plan's 2011 effort "Get Your Heart On!" really fast in a Southern American accent, it sounds gross. . .like sexual gross!

I would have an opinion on Metallica if I cared enough to have an opinion on Metallica.

They are a good band but I think their best work was in the 80's and they have been in decline since the Black Album. The Black Album is great but it's overplayed. Also James Hetfield's voice is soo clean now that he doesn't really sound metal and his vocals are more rock. They still play live pretty good but can be sloppy.
A bassist is never late, nor is he early, he arrives precisely when he means to.

The Pit operates under a pseudo-Murphy’s Law state of mind. You can make a comment and "whatever wrong assumption that can be made about it, will be made about it."

I actually find this thread to be quite interesting, in that the winner of the poll is obviously "Metallica is a good band", while almost every comment here is saying why it's a bad band. Just proves the point that it's not that everyone hates Metallica, but it's that the majority of people who are vocal about the band are the ones that bash it. The internet for ya.

You have to account for people like me. I think Metallica is a great band but currently they just aren't as good as they used to be IMO.

That's a given, I'm pretty sure all Metallica fans can agree that they aren't as good as they used to be (though I do reckon DM is better than their 90's stuff). But even then, the amount of people who are vocally against Metallica still seems to be much larger than those who like them at all. So next time someone asks "Why does everyone hate Metallica?" I think looking at a straight number based poll like this can disprove that statement I think.

I just realize the same thing applies for Nickleback, cause a lot of people are very vocal about their hatred for them yet...they are very successful. It's like their fans are a persecuted people who hide their beliefs in the dark for fear of being identified as a...Nicklehead. Then we'll start to see posters saying "How to identify a Nicklehead"

Death Magnetic is a fun album to play along to. I wouldn't listen to it anymore though.

Same way I feel about A7X and Disturbed, as a fan of both bands I often fear saying I like either bands because it seems everyone with a keyboard hates A7X, and hates anything to do with David Draimon. The internet, where everything you like can and will be held against you .

Heh, I remember, around the 'Ride the Lightning' era, when Metallica fans used to say that exact same thing about most of my favourite bands.

They are a fine band with memorable riffs that entertain millions of people around the world. No, they're not high art, but neither is the shit you're listening to, most likely. Case closed.

...modes and scales are still useless.

I'm not sure what his interviews have to do with his ability to play music...


OT:
I do like Metallica. I'm a bigger fan of their early work, though. (Fyi, I wasn't saying, in the previous thread, that they were bad. I just listed some common criticisms that I saw as valid.) Death Magnetic was ok, although I wish they had used less compression. In any case...Metallica is not my favorite band, but I do like their Thrash stuff*.

*And yes, Death Magnetic was Thrash. Tbf, it sounds a lot better than some of the lesser known '80s Thrash.

Absolutely diddly squat, I just don't like him much. Hetfield gives a good interview though


Hint: If I'm bothering to read Metallica interviews I must like at least some of their songs

Yes. But interviews are like a side thing. Clearly, you like their music (at least some of it). So, why not focus on that?
