A lot of arguments about Metallica being overrated or not has gone on.

Personally I think they deserve the recognition for being able to write songs like "Fade To Black" and "One".

Alot of the slower songs they have are just perfect songs.
What do you think?

0-0-0-13-0-0-0-0-13 or something like that alalalala but It;s so heavy and off time and awesome and you could not f**k anyone to it.

there's a reason why there's a ONLY metallica thread. that means one thread for discussion. otherwise the metal forum would get 1000 metallica noob polls a day about the stupidest of subjects. OMG IS KIRK HAMMETT BALD? LETS TAKE A POLL AND SEE IF YOU THINK LARS IS REALLY DANISH!!!

No, not really, metallica was one of the best thrash bands ever, in my opinion. Master of puppets deserves all the praise it gets imo. However, new metallica is pretty weak imo.

Meh, they're weak then and they're weak now.IMO. Master of Puppers had its moments.

I cannot agree with that more.

Edit: KEA/RTL > Master of Puppets imo.

Their older stuff doesn't get enough recognition. All the focus in the media is on post-black album stuff because that's what they show on TV. Generally, people assume that that's what Metallica really sound like and dismiss them, hence them being underrated.

Quite frankly they are like metal's Jimi Hendrix:

They might not be the best band in the world and definitely aren't the most technically adept players in the metal world but they were hugely influencial.

I like them though; apart from St. Anger I like it all. Even Some Kind of Monster has some good riffs in it.
