I wonder how the 90s would have gone for metallica had they not worked with bob rock. I bet at the very least the black album would have been more like 80s metallica. Oh well still good tunes on the bob rock albums except st. Anger possibly the worst album ever by any artist. Death magnetic is cool but james' vocals are done. Metallica still rules though.
Bow before the God's of metal
Shortest straw.one of their best,at least I think so.I'm just happy we r all metal lovers on here.cause that's what really matters.meta l FOREVER friends
Progressive metal that paved the way or countless others. Too bad they dumbed their own music down after this album.
I love the entire justice album.I thought it was the darkest for metallica. I mean,they do deserve some credit for fuk sakes!!!.met a l wouldn't be the same today,if it weren't for metallica. I still love PANTERA,lamb of God,machine head.to many to list.
One of my favorite metallica albums!! :D
These songs are too long!!
Hetfield's God! (obscure?)
Mainstream
\m/ (-_-) \m/
And Slayer and Pantera ARE better than all metallica after the 80's..
I have a VERY short straw for all metallica after .....and justice..
Look up "... And justice for Jason" on YouTube for a fan version with the bass added in. Much heavier than the crappy production this album had.
Hell yea!!
Whitechapel
METALLICA IS THE BEST OF THE BEST

Adamlvest, I'm glad Slayer was smart enough to not change their style so we can have only pure slayer fans!
adamlvest
P.S. I still think Pantera and Slayer rocks, just not like Metallica.
adamlvest
Metallica is and will always be the best and the reason why Slayer and Pantera never changed is because they aren't smart enough to change with the times. I wonder what they would sound like if they did change? S#it! Thats what!
mark59734
Just one of the best. S&M was amazing.
Johnm959 says it well. Simply were good, but ain't no more. I just payed my respect. Slayer still rules. Lamb of God is where its at. And Machine f**king Head, well, they just got better w time, unlike metallica.
.....used to be, in the 80s.
Hell yeah I agree metallica is the best
... and Justice for All, their best album.
Metallica is the best band ever and always will be \m/
This song kicks a** and so does Metallica! Metallica is and was one of the best influential metal bands of all time. Talk s**t on Metallica all u want Metallica haters but at least give them some goddamn respect for what they accomplished in metal and cut them some f**king slack! They may have changed whoop de do! So have other bands! Metallica are legends whether you like it or not.
One of my favorite songs of all time!!!
this is 4 who wahts to talk s**t bout metallica F**K YOU!!!! THEY STILL ROCK!!!!!!!! !
Slayer has the best drummers period
I hear you that's why I listen to slayer and pantera.
This is when Metallica represented. s o thankful slayer never changed
joe u r a clown

Mr mojo rising you are an idiot and apparently an abba fan. F*g!
joeeagle13
Yeah jason c*m queen Viginacca is in the hall of fem. Like abba. Gee Black Sabbath isn't, nor Kiss, nor led zep. Metallica belongs wit boston and abba. I'll visit the hall that inducts black sabbath. The rick and roll hall of fame os a f**king joke. Ask Ac/dc, pantera, megadeth, etc.

Metallica being in hall of fame only means hall of fame is a total joke.
joeeagle13
O. And Lars is a fool, tard and not an American! Deport his man goo swallowing overrated whiney anti Napster a**. France always needs more butt pirates bon voyage lars, leave my beloved country for one who os okay with sellouts.
joeeagle13
Uh harros.lowel l Vaginacca did it's best to kill metal. Have you heard the last six albums? That s**t aint metal it is crap. It's not called Metal it's called excrement. That's poo, for you less intelligent vaginacca fans. Really, you pay tp listen to hear these guys cover tunes that were better before they ruined them? Enjoy harris.lowel l

I will be listening to true metal. The likes of Megadeth and Pantera.
joeeagle13
Ah yes. METALLICA. Before they became Vaginaca. This a album was the beginning of the end. But still not "load". Oh what if you guys could of been more than a bob segar cover band? Not a bad start, but a stinky crappy sperm cover end. Don't forget to swallow Lars.
Awesome!!!! More double base- forget the cow bell!!!
If it wasn't for the almighty Metallica metal would be dead. Long live METALLICA. \m/
One of their best songs.

lars is the most overrated drummer of all time; he should've thrown out of the band long ago and disgraced.
Love the military style snare in this, awesome double kicks too. Lars is underrated
abelstrd
Metallica was a good band. It's sad how some of you can sit there and say they're the heaviest and greatest. EXPAND YOUR HORIZONS PEOPLE!!!
Good band , but always a hardcore punker !!!
I am a Metallica fan for life always will be I love the first for albums listing to them everyday but you f*gs will never be forgiven for unforgiven
Rip cliff may you forever bestow metal up there asses
Umm... they are in the hall of fame. Have been since 2009.
bigfishon55
