Long before the napster calamity, the hair cuts that shook the world, and the cinematic debut of band therapy, Metallica was a respected thrash band. Hard to believe ain’t it? Just give Kill ‘EM All a listen to if you doubt my words. In honor of the celebrations, cook-outs, and parades that will be suffocating city streets today, I have chosen a song that will help some remember the battling days of the past. Watch and raise your drinks to those fallen warriors who died defending your right to rock.
Metallica: One (from the Seattle show in Live Sh*t Binge and Purge)
After the tragic death of bass playing demi-God Cliff Burton, the band was forced to fill his monumentally awesome shoes and did so with Jason Newsted. Metallica was not the same, but still managed to pump out a couple good songs…that is untill every thing they did turned to shit. Because of their driving need to be the biggest Homer-sexuals alive, Metallica can forever suck on the unwashed balls of a three toed sloth. What great music they DID make will never be forgotten, and should still be listened to. Why not do so on this extra day off, while downing a few 40’s in the back yard while frying up some ground animal muscles. That’s how I’d be celebrating if I didn’t have to work tonight. \m/
