Metallica Drummer Lars Ulrich tries hard to remain relevant.

And you can still listen to his music if he leaves the country. Not sure what he thinks the downside is for everyone else if he leaves. Typical narcissist.

If conservative bands weren't owned by liberal labels.

That's my fucking wet dream.

I stopped listening to Metallica when they sued Napster.

It's not that I cared about the status of that company, it just killed there image in my mind forever.

e.g. "Did you hear Metallica is suing a bunch of computer geeks? THATS FUCKING METAL!" /s

It wasn't even Metallica that was super aggressive against Napster. It was Lars Ulrich specifically. Fuck that guy, and fuck that band too (never was a big fan).

Yeah, the other thing that did it for me was in that documentary about them, they kept referring to their band as "the business."

I'm a huge fan of Metallica, but am really disappointed with Lars for pulling this kind of bullshit. I guess being an amazing musician doesn't preclude one from being a giant douchebag.

Me, too. But when is the last time a conservative metal band backed by a conservative label, or any art or music, for that matter, ever got that big?

I work in the accounting sector, and every day I realize they are all deep in debt because they live in denial of their lies. I'd rather keep myself small, relevant, the music real and uncensored, the label in my own name, not theirs, and tell them all to fuck off without having to worry about whether they will pay me.

And if I can't get to represent my side, if I work my ass off and they won't pay, guess who is getting sued right back? Fuck the liberal music industry.

Don't let the door hit you. Just one more celebrity I can cross off the list of giving a damn about. I already had with him anyways, but this just reinforces his douchiness.

The liberals always employ their snotty brats through bad pr and then some. He probably already had his label pay human smugglers to traffick him and all his groupies to Canada.

If you're a Trump supporter, start your own label, you lazy, leeching asshole!

Every time they start making good music - they fuck things up. Napster, now this. Fuck off Lars, talentless passive aggressive fuck. Jason left for a reason.

To be honest though Napster was damning to the rest of us buying CDs and lowered sound quality to a point where it may never recover. If it wasn't for Amazon and a few independent hold outs it would have been complete armageddon. Even though I didn't like Metallica I fucking hated Napster and P2P. Free .mp3s fucked over everyone who wanted to collect music.

So far, every celeb who said they'll leave America if Trump wins has been someone whom I wanted to see leave decades ago. Whatever will we do without the washed up drummer from Metallica and Rosie O'Donnell? I remember a Simpsons episode where all the D list celebs were put on a rocket to the sun. Maybe we can work out something like that for these clowns.

Fine by me! Look, I grew up on the older stuff like Justice and the Black Album. I trudged through the Load and reLoad era. I remained a silent fan when the Napster fiasco went off. Death Magnetic was decent, and this new album looks like it's trying pretty hard to recapture that 'hook' of older style that made it relevant.

But I simply don't give two shits what any of their political affiliations are. Want to throw a hissy fit if your dog doesn't win the race? Fine. Go on, then. Git.

This is Metallica. Throw a bottle of whiskey back in one go back stage, violence and aggression on high point.

The fuck happened to my band, dude? They turned into softy old fucks that have easily hurt fee-fees and think it's right to take hissy fit stances on political issues. Past Metallica would kick your asses, Modern Metallica.

I saw Metallica when they were plugging Kill 'em All. (Yep. Old man, here.) A buddy of mine snagged a copy of the album when James threw it into the crowd. Load was the last one I bought.

On a side note, I met Jason Newkid in a bar when he was playing with Flotsam & Jetsam. Very cool dude.

They lost their rights to own a moshpit. No longer do I give a shit.

No moshpit, no I don't wanna go.
