Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame announced its 2009 Inductees, one of them being Metallica. On April 4, 2009, the Induction Ceremony will take place in Cleveland for the first time since 1997. The 2009 Induction Ceremony will be broadcast live on Fuse TV.

According to a Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame press release, Metallica is the most successful heavy metal band of the past quarter centry. Metallica's line-up has primarily consisted of drummer Lars Ulrich, rhythm guitarist, vocalist James Hetfield, and lead guitarist Kirk Hammett, as well as current bass player Robert Trujillo. Longtime bassists for the band, the late Cliff Burton, and Jason Newsted, are also being inducted. Metallica's early releases included fast tempos, instrumentals, and aggressive musicianship that placed them as one of the "big four" of the thrash metal subgenre alongside Slayer, Megadeth, and Anthrax. The band earned a growing fan base in the underground music community and critical acclaim, with the 1986 release "Master of Puppets" described as one of the most influential and "heavy" thrash metal albums. The band achieved substantial commercial success with its self-titled 1991 album, which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200. With this release the band expanded its musical direction resulting in an album that appealed to a more mainstream audience.

The 2009 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame performer inductees were chosen by the 600 voters of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation. Artists are eligible for inclusion in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twenty-five years after their first recording is released.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame honors the legendary performers, producers, songwriters, disc jockeys and others who have made rock and roll the force that it is in our culture. For over two decades, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation has been nominating and electing those figures, and honoring them at an annual ceremony that has become one of the most celebrated events of the year, and certainly one of the hottest tickets in rock.

Metallica are a disgrace they don't deserve any kind of honour.


Dude, you can dislike Metallica, but you can't even say they're a "disgrace". they've done more for metal music than any other band, ever.

ever the listened to "Master of Puppets?" yeah, it's pretty much a metal masterpiece.

sure, st.anger was a flop, but they came back with death magnetic, and they're still kicking ass live.

calling metallica a "disgrace" just blatantly displays your ignorance.

no master of puppets is a piece of shit just like Ride the lighting.


And this coming from someone who thinks Summoning and Mortiis are great


Wtf? dude, you need to learn your roots. dislike 'em if you want, but a disgrace?

yeah and seriously, industrial metal?

Seriously, it should be called "Rock'n'Roll & co. Hall of Lame", it includes artists of many musical genres, and who knows, they might add rap in a year or two.
True metal bands' names -including Metallica's- should neverr be prounced in this trivial hall.


Run DMC is also an inductee, sir.
Fat & Sassy! - 17.01.2009 at 22:43  
Wait? Metallica is getting inducted before Iron Maiden. What the fuck?

Actually, i know though i've never heard of this "run DMC" before.
Anyway, what is a rap artist doing in a ROCK'n'roll hall of fame?
IMO the whole thing is a big pile of crap. Oh, and Metallica being inducted before Maiden doesnt mean that they are better.. nor worse.. Whatever...

I'm just confused that another band that originated BEFORE Metallica... that inspired them and many other bands to this day... don't get inducted before them...

For the record, I think they both deserve a place in there.
MetalMo - 19.01.2009 at 12:14  
I agree... maiden should have been inducted 8 years ago or so.

Run DMC are not Rap, they're Hip Hop. Also, they are a very important band in the world of Rock n Roll music, which includes more than just "Rock Bands".

As For Maiden, sure they are reviewed as gods in the Heavy Metal, but their popularity amongst the general population is nothing compared to that of Metallica.


In a follow up to this article: Metallica wants all their former members to be present for their induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Well, except for Dave Mustaine. And the dead guy, of course.

I wonder who they consider former members?

That puzzled me as well, cause in the days of Run DMC Hip Hop was just a synonym for Rap.

Hip Hop and Rap are two different styles of music. Just the same way that Glam Metal and Black Metal are different styles.

Are you getting at the idea that rap is more genuinely lyrics/ideas-focussed (like good BM) - cerebral, if you will, though I've got a feeling that isn't the exact word I'm looking for - while hip-hop is more pop-oriented and for dancing (like good glam)? That's the way I've viewed it for quite a while now but I wouldn't say it matters a whole lot, especially to most MSers. Plus, with those definitions I would definitely call Run-DMC rap over hip-hop, although I haven't yet heard any of their albums in their entirety

Dead as well, plus he wasn't a member

But if they want all their ex-members there it will be a pretty long list:
Ron McGovney
Lloyd Grant
Dave Mustaine
Sam Dijon
Brad Parker
Jeff Warner
John Marshall (who filled in live for James at the time his arm was in a cast)
Jason Newsted
Bob Rock (though never an oofficial member he did play the bass parts on Metallica and probably was the biggest influence on Metallica fucking up majorly musicwise. IMO he has had more influence on the band than the band members themselves)

I actually wasn't trying to say that Hip Hop was to Rap as what Glam is to Black. I was saying that Rap and Hip Hop are two different genres, in the way the different Metal genres are different. I could have use Prog and Death, or Metalcor and Power for the example. Rap is centered around the beat and the rhythmically articulated poetry (r.a.p.) whereas Hip Hop is focused more on melody. Someone like DMX is rap whereas TLC was hip Hip Hop. And just like in Metal there are numerous sub genres within Rap and Hip Hop.

I was thinking of that same list. I commented on Kamen because in the S&M DVD Lars states that they considered him part of Metallica.

Then Run DMC is rap cause their main focus was centered aoround the beat and the rhythmically articulated poetry.

Hell, I don't want Metallica in the RRHOF if Run DMC is in it! I mean wtf :p?

Kinda funny, I saw the ceremony on youtube and James pretty much said it was a shame bands like
Iron Maiden, Motörhead, Rush & Venom weren't in RRHOF. And he's right! Well spoken Hetfield!

It was great to see Jason again with Metallica. He's awesome!

Mustaine was actually invited, but he declined.
