I love Metallica. I really do. But why these musicians/celebrities think we care if they leave... HEY WE DONT GIVE A SHIT WHERE YOU LIVE!!

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."

They're one of the only bands that I will not pay to hear, ever.

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.
