Iron Maiden Is Better Than Metallica, Says Lars Ulrich
The matter of Metallica vs. Maiden deathmatch for the title of the biggest metal band of all time has always been a discussion capable of easily turning up the heat among guitar-driven fans.

And Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich has recently shared his thoughts on the matter, seemingly giving Iron Maiden the No. 1 spot.

Asked by the Guardian on singer Bruce Dickinson's comments about his band being better, Lars responded, "I will never argue with that. I will always support Bruce Dickinson in whatever nonsense he says. That's part of the fun. So go Iron Maiden! It's fine."

The question was raised as a part of Glastonbury discussion and Metallica's headlining spot at one of UK's biggest music festivals. Speaking of which, Bruce has given the event quite a bashing.

As Daily Star reports, Dickinson noted that "personally I have no interest in going to Glastonbury. In the days when Glasto was an alternative festival it was quite interesting.

"Now it's the most bourgeois thing on the planet," the vocalist added. "Anywhere Gwyneth Paltrow goes and you can live in an air-conditioned yurt is not for me."

In related news, guitarist Kirk Hammett once again touched on the matter of "Lulu" record, explaining how he finds it unfortunate that fans can't get into it.

"I love that album to death," Kirk told MTV (via Blabbermouth). "It's unfortunate that other people don't see it the same way as I do, but what can I do about it? I can't do anything about it. I can just keep on loving it. And if people like it, great. If people don't like it, that's great too. It's only music."
