Once read an interview in which Cameron Diaz espoused the orthodox critical view re: Metallica: PUPPETS and LIGHTNING rule, rest is for nonces. No argument here, bar a couple tunes:

Search: "Battery," "Damage Inc," "Fade to Black," "Enter Sandman," "Turn the Page."

Destroy: ...AND JUSTICE FOR ALL (agree w/ Omar's description, except the part about it being good).

Resoundingly sexless music (ie. no songs about chicks), the po-faced, no fun, "males only" aura somewhat off-putting. Relationship to nu- metal: elder statesman, presumably (not withstanding Napster/Durst fights). They survived grunge, should survive this. Sold hoooj amount of CDs in USA in the 90s: over 40 million. Anthrax: no sales, no influence. Sure, they rapped, wore board shorts, had goatees, knew who Flavor Flav was, so did Suicidal Tendencies, Faith No More, etc.

Metallica: classic for the albums Cameron Diaz likes (and dud for the rest).
