Metallica collaberating with anybody comes off as an attempt to make money off another demographic, however rediculous the collaberation may be (lulu). Next, Metallica attempts to break into the Chinese market.

@ANON: YOU MAY INDEED BE RIGHT ABOUT METALLICA AIMING FOR ASIAN APPEAL. JAPAN IS ONE OF THE "BIG 4" COMMERCIAL WORLD MUSIC MARKETS (US, UK AND GERMANY BEING THE OTHER 3).

If Metallica is trying to appeal to a Japanese audience by collaborating with a Mainland Chinese artist, they need to fire their marketing manager immediately.

China is a different market, and trojan horsing with as corn fed as you can get a Chinese artist a track that old and indicitave of their first major move into commercial success, with no new material is really pitiful... rinse, repeat, China $. Not looking forward to the posthumous collaberations in the foreseeable future... John Denver, Ravi Shankar...

When the fvck did China and Japan become the same???

They didn't, never did...such generalist crap...its much worse than saying americans and Canadians are the same...or even americans and the English

Anyway, here's to hoping the Chinese will see through the bullsh!t and not subscribe to this pile of sh!te "act"

Goddamn this is fvcking deplorable...hideous fvcking noise

Worst part is that either LL doesn't realize he's been duped, or even worse yet, actually IS aware of the bullsh!t and has willingly chosen to go along with it

remember, Lou Lu fvcking keeled over (from embarrassment perhaps?) not too long after he collaborated with these over-indulgent chumping fvcking hacks

pretty fvcking pathetically disgusting, this, but not even remotely surprising...what is it now? 3 for 3? a sh!t new version EVERY goddamned week eh? fvcking shameless

Ah well, like I've said before, maybe they'll fvcking die soon....utter embarrassment to humanity in general...in WAY too many respects :)

If Metallica's collaberators keep keeling over they will develop a reputation and hopefully the collaberations will cease. The Metallica curse.

I NEVER ONCE STATED THAT CHINA WAS JAPAN. MY INTENTION WAS INDEED TO GENERALIZE THEM AS ASIANS, SINCE THEY ARE FROM THAT CONTINENT. AS FOR THE TOPIC OF DIVERSITY, YOU HAD BETTER BELIEVE THAT IN CHINA EVERYBODY IS ETHNIC CHINESE, AND IN JAPAN EVERYBODY IS ETHNIC JAPANESE. I'M GLAD TO HELP CLEAR UP THE CONFUSION.

IN THE 1970'S, KISS WAS WELL RECEIVED IN THE ASIAN MARKET, NOT BECAUSE THEY WERE EXCEPTIONAL MUSICIANS, BUT BECAUSE THEY WERE WEARING KABUKI STYLED COSTUMES. EVEN THOUGH THE CULTURAL BRIDGE WAS UNINTENTIONAL ON THE BAND'S PART, IT DOES HELP TO KNOW YOUR AUDIENCE IF YOU WISH TO SELL OUT.

Spiral, I didn't mean to come off so harshly (whenever I see that piece of sh!t photo of shartallica couple with some sh!tty "news" of theirs, I get slightly irritated ;)

Its just that, well, Asia is a pretty fvckin big place. A country like Kazakstan has very little in common with the nation of Viet Nam except for the fact that both are in "Asia"

Generalization in general (no pun) kinda freaks me out, like when people hear spoken English and automatically assume someone is British/Canadian/American/Kiwi/Oz/ etc...

What if Shartallica did a collab with a mariachi band? (not that far fetched anymore, eh ;) Would that be to the appeal of the greater populace of North America?

The global homogenization of culture is pretty disturbing and sad...I like diversity, and it seems to be quite rapidly disappearing, which is why I seek the hinterlands of "wherever I may roam"

Anyway, this bullsh**, regurgitated "rendition" sucks fvcking SHART :)

This whole conversation has made me want to watch that South Park episode where a Japanese restaurant opens next to the Chinese one and they call the Chinatown 'Little Tokyo'.

Maybe Lars should wear a panda suit. Unless it isn't shameless enough to sell a few.
