Search: I put "Enter Sandman" on jukeboxes sometimes. I can remember the chorus, see.

Destroy: I think I should probably stop pretending to like metal at all. I mean it's not as if I'm convincing anyone.

Seek: the evolution in band photos from scarily spotty geeks — like they won a competition for most indexical pubescent metalhead complexion — to sexily toned beasts

Destroy: wasn't it them who waged war first and bigtime on Napster?

Seek: "Breadfan", "Whiplash", "Am I Evil?", "Trapped Under Ice", "Fade to Black", all of Master of Puppets, "One" (my favorite song when I was 14), "Whiskey In the Jar"

...and Destroy: The Black Album, that symphonic shit

Search - the last track on garage days revisited, the photo on the back of Kill Em All, and Battery

Destroy - everything they stand for

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).
