Reasons Why Metallica Sucks

The Top Ten

1 They are overrated

Of course they are! I mean... They were important for the thrash metal genre but the last... Thousand years they became so commercial that they suck. Also james singing is horrible. I prefer megadeth anthrax or slayer... But not them! They are just... Ugh.. - BlindGuardianValhalla

Everything is overrated for a reason. Metallica have emotional songs and experiment a lot. I hate this list so much - GreenDayFan21

Metallica is all too deserving of its fans. - HappyMouse111

Any real guitarist know they aren’t good musicians

2 They are sellouts

From 'Ride The Lightning'(best) to 'Lulu'(worst). They are living on their past.

3 Lars Ulrich is the worst heavy metal drummer in the world

Dave Lombardo how did he not get this gig james and kirk why do you keep greedy lars around.

4 Kirk Hammett has to rely on a Wah Pedal in order to make a solo
5 They collaborated with Lou Reed

The bad part is not the fact that they collaborated with Lou Reed, it's their collaberation with Lou Reed. - BeatlesFan1964

6 James Hetfield called himself a Table, and is proud of making the worst album ever, Lulu

So? What does that have to do with his skills?

7 They fired Dave Mustaine

Dave Mustaine had a drinking problem he got fired but the band's still going strong.

8 They made an album called Hardwired... to Self Destruct
9 They haven't written a decent song since they started.

It is true.


10 Metallica wrote a country song, Mama Said

I'm pretty sure Cliff Burton would've appreciated it since he liked country. - Aragorn98

The Contenders

11 All of their new music, even Death Magnetic is crap

There is nothing special in their music. Metallica became famous because of their catching name and good marketing - BlindGuardianValhalla

Their music leaves me wanting to put you into a hole and pour the blood of Lars Ulrich onto your head.

I do not care for Lulu, but St. Anger is much worse. Death Magnetic was actually pretty good. - Caleb9000

12 Kirk Hammett stopped playing solos and made St. Anger

Just name a drummer and they will be better, honestly.

13 They spend all their time touring instead of making albums

And It took them 10 years just to make ONE ALBUM!

14 They are mainstream
15 It's all just power chords
16 They like Mastodon

Mastodon sucks. End of story. - Aragorn98

17 Suing Napster

They are loathsome human beings.

I cannot believe that they could have done something this disgustingly selfish and stupid. Napster wasn't stealing your profits, Metallica! If anything, it helped you. You suing the people that downloaded from Napster is where I draw the line.
That is completely unacceptable. You are already rich beyond your wildest dreams! How much more money do you need?!?!?!? None! That's ridiculous!

18 They played with Lady Gaga

They played with

*rolls eyes*

19 Ron McGoveny, Cliff Burton, Jason Newsted, and Robert Trujilo cursed the band into making even worse music
20 They stole their name from a friend of Lars who came up with it and was going to use it for his fanzine
