Reasons Why Metallica Should Not Be So High on the "Biggest Sellouts of the History of Music" List.

Metallica is accused of selling out with the Black Album.

The Top Ten

1 The Black Album Has Very Good Songs

Best album in my opinion - InsertCleverName

The songs are awesome - SoldierOfFortune

2 The Black Album May Not Have Been Thrash, but It Was a Classic Heavy Metal Album.
3 Enter Sandman is on the "Sellout" Album

ES is considered one of the best Metallica songs. - SoldierOfFortune

4 Saying that Metallica Sold Out is Like Saying that Any Band Who Tries a New Style is a Sellout.

St. Anger is trash, but they didn't "sellout" with it. - SoldierOfFortune

5 Because They Have a Catchy Name and Posers Use It a Lot Because It is Easy to Remember Does Not Mean They Sold Out Musically.
6 They Have Been Grossly Over-Exaggerated by the Megadeth Fanbase.

It's no secret that Megadeth has the worst fanbase in Metal. - SoldierOfFortune

7 The Black Album Has a Lot of Metallica's Best Songs

Enter Sandman, Unforgiven, Sad But True, Nothing Else Matters, etc. - SoldierOfFortune

8 Making Ballads is Different Than Creating Pop Music.

Nothing Else Matters - SoldierOfFortune

9 Megadeth's "Risk" is Overlooked While It Sold Out More Than Metallica, Using Electronic Beats!

As you already said, trying a new style doesn’t mean you’ve sold out.

10 Linkin Park, U2, and Kiss Sold Out Much More, but They are Below Metallica.
