Reasons Metallica Isn't the Best Metal Band


The Top Ten

1 Metallica betrayed their fans

I disagree.

2 Metallica killed metal

How? Please elaborate.

3 Metallica said "we don't like to be identified with metal anymore"

So? They just don’t want to be known as metal, like Motörhead

4 Metallica aren't consistent

I’ll admit St. Anger and LuLu are terrible, but I like everything else.

5 Metallica have some of the worst albums in metal history

Lulu is horrendous, but there’s much worse, Demonic by Testament, Illud Divinium Insanus, etc.

6 Metallica's worst songs are terrible

I agree to some extent, Brandenburg Gate is pretty horrible.

7 Metallica are sellouts

Experimentation =/= selling out.

8 Their best songs are overrated

Most popular*

Agreed. - zxm

Three words:

1. Master
2. of
3. Puppets

9 Metallica's Lulu Ruined Lou Reed's Discography

It’s not like he had a good discography...

10 Lars Ulrich sucks at drumming

Kinda true. James Hetfield is almost good drummer as him. - zxm

I agree.

I disagree! Listen to his drumming in 2018 live performances! He’s really improving! - awesomedp900

The Contenders

11 Metallica only have five good albums

Not true, Load is great, it even has my favorite Metallica song on it

12 Kirk Hammett is very overrated

He took eight years to make hardwired because he was to busy going “wah” over Napster
I disagree though

13 Metallica's underrated songs are thrown away

Not a reason against the band but I agree.

14 They ripped off others' songs

I won't say they directly ripped off songs. But I have found a lot of similarities. That may be rip off. Or simply it could be inspiration. - zxm
