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

Metallica sucks!

2 They are sellouts

Load and Reload aren' that bad. Also their new album is pretty good. - Userguy44

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

Every good Hammett solo is without a wah pedal. - Userguy44

Not every Kirk Hammett solo has a wah pedal, dumbasses

5 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?

I think it says a lot about the man's songwriting skills if he's crooning about being a table lol.

The Table thing is kinda funny in my opinion. - Userguy44

6 They haven't written a decent song since they started.

It is true.

Huh? - Userguy44


7 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

8 They fired Dave Mustaine

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

So? - Userguy44

9 They made an album called Hardwired... to Self Destruct

Oh god. What's wrong with the albums name? - Userguy44

10 Kirk Hammett stopped playing solos and made St. Anger

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

The Contenders

11 Metallica wrote a country song, Mama Said

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

12 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

13 They are mainstream

The Black Album isn't bad. They went really mainstream after that. But they didn't sellout really. - Userguy44

14 They spend all their time touring instead of making albums

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

15 It's all just power chords

So is every other metal band. - Userguy44

16 They played with Lady Gaga

They played with

*rolls eyes*

17 Hetfield can't sing.

And you can't either

18 They like Mastodon

Mastodon sucks. End of story.

19 Suing Napster

They are loathsome human beings.

That was only Lars. Not the whole band! - Userguy44

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!

20 They stole their name from a friend of Lars who came up with it and was going to use it for his fanzine
21 They started the band just to make money.

For real! - Userguy44

22 Ron McGoveny, Cliff Burton, Jason Newsted, and Robert Trujilo cursed the band into making even worse music

Bassists made Metallica worse? What the hell? - Userguy44
