If your kids and GF don't know who Metallica is, they are playing all this week on The Late Late Show.

They are playing their greatest hits as a farewell to Furguson.

Lars Ulrich's hair line says all about how long these guys have been around, still they rock like it was still the last millennium. Head banging sweetness!

Thanks for letting us know and for posting the vids!

If your kids don't know who Metallica is, you've failed as a parent. If your girlfriend doesn't know who Metallica is, that is grounds for an immediate breakup.

Sweet, thanks for the vids.

Assuming your GF is not 45 years old, how would she know?

Young women don't generally listen to dinosaur rock stations, so unless they work at a strip bar, they will only know the name Metallica from their grandfather's T-shirts.

Early Metallica is just the best. Thanks for the vids.

Nice find.

Lars crosses his legs like a girl.

I disagree. Even though Metallica has been around now for a long time, they still are one of the best active Hard Rock/Metal bands out there!

Great band, but I just asked my very attractive waitress (27 years old) to name a Metallica song.

She couldn't.

She's laughing and trying to keep me from hitting Send Post....lol

My oldest daughter who is 22, went and saw them in DC for the Concert for Valor last week.

If you can ignore the terrible call outs, it's one hell of a great game.

"Jaaaaack Fuckin' potttt" is a great call out though .

They've kinda grown on me, I find their terrible-ness somewhat endearing now. Helps that the game is great.

Sure my kid knows who Metallica is. Just like my old man turned me on to Benny Goodman. So they are doing a greatest hits gig?

They are the house band for a week.

That's cool! I wasn't really sure if they were still a band performing. I guess when you get to a certain point as a rock star, it's either play the songs that made you famous wherever you can or just fade away...

They had Death Magnetic about 7 years ago that was kinda OK, but they really have not had any great albums since Master of Puppets.

#25 6 years ago

That's what I figured. Last time I saw them was the And Justice for All tour. As far as albums were concerned it was not as good as their prior efforts but way better than the next one. Still a hell of a show.

Edit- I did see them the next time around too. Somehow I forgot about that one.

#26 6 years ago

Agreed vid ..but I'm a big fan of what they can do and will still have interest and likes of what they have done after master and will in thief future stuff.
Thank you for sharing info

My kids know who Metallica is. It was the first concert they ever went to. My boy was 11 and my daughter was 13 at the time. Bonus: We all rode our bikes to the concert!

Before anyone asks if I took them into the mosh pit too, I should probably mention that the 'concert' was a free show they put on in the parking lot of a nearby Tower Records. No mosh pit. My son was fascinated. He wanted to get closer to the stage (the bed of a flatbed big rig). So we left my daughter and the bikes with some friends we met up with there and headed for the stage. As we got closer, the music got louder (obviously) and we started seeing shopping carts being passed over our heads (towards the stage). My son had seen and heard enough (vertically challenged, only 11), so we headed back to the bikes and watched the rest of the show from there. When we got home, I had the kids call my ex wife and tell her that we just got back from a killer Metallica concert. Cool dads take their kids to Metallica concerts.

Have not seen Metallica yet out of all the rock bands I have seen. Looks like they have not done many world tours over the last several years like other bands. I think they were last in Arizona in 2008 or 09. Always liked Craig F. And still debating about Metallica if need to put on checklist to see live as have nothing against them but not a huge fan, maybe James vocals bug me. I did see Craig F. On stand up comedy tour but was not as funny as watching his TV show. Will be sad to see him go.

They finished the week with a super slow Sad But True.

I was hoping for a rocking Green Hell or Battery.

da f----...

My wife and I both in our early 30's and we knew Metallica in middle school... Think you're a little off on your timeframe there..

All I can say is it's not my fault my wife is the coolest chick on the planet. Getting Metallica pin was more her idea than mine.. I mean, I liked the gameplay but I was never really a fan of the music all that much, and I don't really care to support them after their Napster crybaby peepants thing. Game is awesome. Music fits, and the callouts are perfect to me. I can't really improve what I have, short of having spent 2000 bucks more on additional stuff that doesn't change the game that much IMO. =\

I wonder at what point did CBS tell Craig that he he'd have to pronounce his name as CREGG.

"Ahhhh Craig, ummmm we think it'd be best if we totally mispronounce your given name Craaaaig and call you CREGG. Because it is the totally logical way to pronounce Craaaaaig ... CREGG. like Greg. But CREGG. Just obvious. Oh, we won't pay you unless we can so there. Oh, by the way tell your mate who's in the James Bond movies we are calling him Daniel CREGG too. So there."

Sure a 35 year old broad will probably know a bunch of Metallica songs (and it sounds like you have a cool wife for sure).

But all the young girls are listening to Taylor Swift, Machine Gun Kelly, Ariana Grande, Dubstep......kids don't want their parents or grandparents music, they want something that they believe is their own.

Obviously Metal is 25 years past it's prime, but a few cool kids are listening to Behemoth.

To the contrary, Metallica just set a world record for touring:

"Guinness World Records recently awarded the group with a plaque for being the first and only band to tour all seven continents, an achievement they ticked off last year when they played a gig in Antarctica, in addition to ones in the world's more populated land masses..."

"Seven continents in one year with Antarctica being the gig of a lifetime...." James Hetfield said in a statement. "Yes, 120 scientists and competition winners. Not to mention the 300 very curious penguins!""

Yes I know but have not been in the many of the states (just few here and there) much from what I can see, I think Maiden has been here more over the years despite there short set lists.
