It really sickens me to know that Metallica went from a decent thrash band in the 80's to a soft-rock commercial joke now. Were they actually fuckin' serious when recording St.Anger? I was laughing through the whole album. When I heard the song "Some Kind Of Monster" I was saying this can't be the same band that did Kill 'em All, Ride The Lighting, Master Of Puppets, ...And Justice For All. Even when Metallica were good back in the 80's, there were still at least a dozen thrash bands that would blow Metallica out of the water. Slayer, Megadeth, Kreator, Overkill, Destruction, Sodom, Testament, and Exodus(for those who don't know this was Kirk Hammett's first band before joining Metallica), just to name a few. I personally think that the black album sucked too, that's when they became commercial, I say fuck Metallica after 1988/1989. They sold out the moment they recorded the pussy ballad "Nothing Else Matters."
