The only good thing Rick Rubin ever accomplished was producing a Cure album.

Metallica = Most overrated metal band of all time

Their new album could have featured 60 minutes of crying babies, and they would have won the Grammy just because they are "Metallica"

Listen to Kill 'Em All, Ride the Lightning, Master of Puppets, ...And Justice For All, and just for grins, Metallica. Then clean up the mess after you sh*t a brick.

call it quits you guys! plzzz

1.- Grammy doesn't know anything about metal, and the only metal for them are the bands from the united states.
2.- Metallica were good, yes, but nothing is forever and they sold their music, this is a clear example

We cant deny that they were good, but we mus accept that nothing is forever
