Metallica Among Biggest Wusses Says Blender

Photo of Metallica

Band Photo: Metallica (?)

METALLICA has made Blender magazine's list of the "The 25 Biggest Wusses … Ever!" The list, which was published in the magazine's July 200 issue, "salutes the most awesomely wimpy musicians of all time." In the short write-up explaining METALLICA's inclusion on the list, the Blender editors state, "The haircuts were lame and the anti-Napster crusade lamer, but neither prepared fans for the soppy bitchfest that was 'Some Kind of Monster': The once-throttling metalheads dropped $40K a month on a touchy-feely life coach in a Cosby sweater who played master to METALLICA's puppets. Lars and James bicker and weep throughout, but neither has the decency to just go ahead and slug the other. Wussiest moment: Lars's ego is crushed by his gnomish father who, upon hearing a new song, sagely advises, 'I would delete that.'"

I'm so sick and godd*mn tired of hearing people sit and b**** about Metallica selling out or being "wusses" just becuz they cut their f*ckin hair. They're grown-ass men, if they want to cut their hair, they can cut their hair, who really gives a flying sh*t what kind of hairstyle they have. and as for some kind of monster, so f*ckin wut if they made a documentary, it was good f*ckin film and appearantly, people hav some sort of issue with them being real people so just stop b****in and get a f*ckin life.

without metallica alot of the bands today wouldnt be around. metallica is an icon. When the new album comes out and it kicks a$$, everyone will be on their nuts again. Just because they cut their hair doesnt make them wussies. Its stupid to say sh#T like that. Freakin childish crap. So what if they had a few albums that were different than the older ones. They can play rings around half the bands that are out now. Metallica freakin rules and always will. Some of you people havent heard of or are old enough to have heard the older metallica albums. Go listien to them and you'll find that metallica can play when they want to. A$$Holes

The only a$$ that Kirk Hammett needs to kick is the a$$ of the stylist that made him up to look like Prince in the Load album art. You can't even say that he doesn't look like that. It did become painfully obvious that image became their only means of rebellion anymore so they cut the mullets. I don't really care either way. I think that Metallica should line up outside of Mustaine's house and when Dave answers the door, they all start sucking his d*** and paying him for guitar lessons. The only thing Metallica ever proved to anyone is that everyone has a price, and anyone can half-ass their way through album after album and still be considered gods because they have lame and retarded fans. All Metallica fans should be forced to wear helmets and ride short yellow buses.

i cant believe what i am reading in the posts above. Granted, the black album marks the beginning of their decline, but the wrote and recorded three or four of the greatest metal albums in history prior to that. Not that it matters, but they were once one of the hardest partying metal bands ever. If you want to hate them for growing up that is fine, but what the f*** does Blender know about metal bands anyway. We are talking about one of the greatest metal bands of all time here. Are you all too young to remember them in all their glory or what, jesus christ. Have some respect. If it wasnt for them all your p***y a$$ bands like avenged sevenfold, trivium, in flames, and so on and so forth would not have a gig right now. Master of Puppets, Kill em All, Ride the Lightening, and And Justice for All are undeniably better than almost every swedish thrash copy cat, or "New wave of American/British Heavy metal" band out there right now and if you dont agree, (because this is not a matter of taste, it is fact) you are ignorant and i am calling you out.

Yo, CrawfordTexasJingoJango.... I like Prince. Hahaha. With regards to Metallica however, I don't think that changing their style is selling out. If it wasn't metal enough for you, don't listen to it. You can't deny though that it you would rather hear their so called "Seel out material" then all the emo trash that is considered metal. Seriously, don't you hate people that call My Chemical Romance and The Used "real metal" and call Napalm Death and Slayer fakers?

What does the length of their hair have to do with their music? Hammett is one of the most talented guitarists out there and Hetfield is an amazing songwriter and just in case you've been under a rock for the past 25 years, Mustaine has been b****ing and crying that he was kicked out of metallica and how much he wants back in...and all of megadeth's material sounds like a sh**ty version of Metallica since Mustaine tries to copy everything they do (when the black ambum came out, megadeth came out with countdown to extinction wich was very produced much like black and during the load years megadeth all of the sudden softened up there sound)....and i believe that Dave Mustaine should be on this list because he is the biggest b**** in the music business..and if you dont agree then watch "Some Kind of Monster" and see Mustaine b**** and cry (he is the only one in that film who cries like a baby) over not being in Metallica and how much Kirk is better than him

How ignorant is it to say a band sucks and the reasons they give are things that they do in their personal lives. You wanna know how i know Metallica is the greatest band in the world, i saw them on their Damaged Justice tour on my 21st birthday! I moshed to every single one of these songs:

- Blackened
- For Whom the Bell Tolls
- Welcome Home (Sanitarium)
- Harvester of Sorrow
- The Four Horsemen
- Master of Puppets
- Fade to Black
- Seek and Destroy
- And Justice for All
- One
- Creeping Death
- Battery
- Last Caress
- Am I Evil?
- Damage, Inc.
- Breadfan

I got puched and headbutted during Damage Inc, which is the greatest live metal song next to Angel of Death. You 15 year old pu$$ies that are b*tcing about Metallica selling out probably never even heard of them until the whole Napster thing...so go home, take some shots, put in Metallica's first 4 albums on shuffle, and thrash your f**king a$$ off!

If Metallica's the greatest metal band ever, my grandma's Boba Fett. And, for the record, I DID watch "some kind of monster" and the only thing I could think of was playing the Metallica Drinking Game and here's the rules: Every time Kirk tries to avoid an argument by talking like a tired 12-year-old girl, take a drink. Every time Lars pouts or whines, take two drinks. Every time Rob Trujillo FAKES his way through old Metallica, take three drinks. Anyone else notice that Lars dad looked like Gandalf if he had AIDS? "Ja, I vood delete zat!" What a bunch of f***ing fruitballs. They're all neatly preened little plastic California crybabies. If Cliff was alive, he'd have f***ing QUIT. Just like Dave Mustaine. Their first four albums? Well, we all know for a fact that the first THREE were partly Dave Mustaine's ideas and riffs anyways. So, yeah, their first four albums were great, but there's a reason why they got sh**ty by the fifth album. All you guys need to do is f***ing get over Metallica. It's time to expand your horizons. All you Metallica fans know now that even though you liked to draw skulls and sh** on everything in high school, and drive f***ed up camaros didn't amount to d***. This west coast pretty boy sh** Metallica's pulling is ridiculous. Okay, let's sue a bunch of our fans for making copies of our songs, much like when you'd dub a cassette for a friend back in the day, then let's make a double disc MISTAKE called S&M because listening to it is the physical equivalent of getting slapped in the a$$ with a garden rake by some hot chick who won't let you touch her tits. Oh, then let's make an album about having time to be angry. That is, we have time to be angry AFTER we're done riding our motorcycles, f***ing our hot california plastic wives, rolling around in platinum albums, and swimming in money. Then we'll make a movie just to prove how hardcore we are! f*** Metallica. Nothing can bring me back. I f***ing HATE Metallica. Dave Mustaine should f*** all of them in their asses. Just a bunch of crusty old has-beens awash in a new generation that ain't as naive as it looks. I hope Metallica retires soon so we can all get back to the good music. F U C K Metallica.

1. Bob Rock is the reason Metallica sounds like they do today. He convinced them during the Black sessions to "simplify everything" saying people were tired of the epic-style songs that actually defined them and is still looked at as their best work.
2. Kirk studied guitar under the wing of Joe Satriani. Enough said.
3. The liner notes/lyrics of their first two major releases(Kill 'Em All, Ride the Lightning) credit Mustaine's in co-writing a good number of the songs. Metallica and Megadeth would not exist without each other.
4. They used to put on a vicious live show. Saw them twice(Evening with & Summer sh**). Haven't seen them since ticket prices for their shows skyrocketed, so I don't know how they are now. When they stop taking stinkin' park on tour with them I might consider seeing them again.
5. Metallica need to go back to doing the kind of thing they did in the 80's. Long, non radio-friendly songs (even though now even the early stuff is being played on the radio; in the 80's/90's that was unheard of) and add in elements of everything they've done since. I have always liked bands that pushed the limits of musical creativity, but still remained true to what put them there in the first place. I'm not saying release another Master of Puppets, just take the musical aspects of that era Metallica and the musicality of later albums and combine the two. Changing and growing as musicians doesn't mean changing the music.

If anyone had called Hetfield a wuss in '87 he'd have collected all their fingers, toes and teeth....

Today, recently sober he'd just say: "Thats cool man, whatever you think."

I love Metallica more than 80% of whats out there but they really have lost what it was that made them great (some would say Cliff)...I think they just got tired of the limitations they percieved in thrash and tried all that weird sh** in the 90's so they wouldn't feel like dinosaurs next to AIC and Soundgarden....Well, those bands are now extinct and Metallica have mutated even further...

I'm hoping Rick Rubin can squeeze one more memorable album out of those guys.....Cus Load forward is abysmal.

I'm a very big fan of metallica and yeah I wish they had the same attitude as in the 80's but they grown up. But if they were still into partying as they used to do, there won't be a metallica in the future. So I prefere a sober metallica, just for the fact that they are live the greatest band in the world. I have seen them last month, and you don't have to believe me, but they play faster than ever and they played only songs of the first 5 albums and fuel (not one song of St.Anger). I have good hope for their upcoming album and especially their new world tour that follows!!!!!!

Mustaine was the real badass in Metallica. Here in SF, he was legendary for beating people down-including Hetfield and Ulrich, who were both terrified of him.

Check out Megadeth 'Behind the music' for conformation in the extras.

Personally I think Blender Mag calling anyone who chose to grow up a 'wussy' is just immature, but whatever-I listen to RadioHead.

Yeah, okay. Megadeth is the f u c king boss over Gaytallica. "Metallic" doesn't mean "metal". It merely resembles it. Period.

metalmayhem, i have no idea of how metallica has any influence over the sound of in flames. trivium definetely, but not in flames. they are in different genres and come from very different backgrounds so the comment about them not being able to play anywhere if it wasnt for metallica makes no sense at all.

Fact of the matter is, Hetfield '87 was the man, Metallica back then were pure gold...Not one person can truly believe that Metallica are the same bunch of badasses we grew up listening to.

creeping death...

Damn, I hate stupid people.

Pay attention this time.

On the Behind the Music: Megadeth DVD in the Extras Hetfield SAYS 'we were afraid Dave was going to kill us all...' Ron McGovney and Mustaine in Edited and seperate clips tell the story of the fight were Mustaine KICKED BOTH THEIR ASSES AT THE SAME TIME. This comes from the band-not some idiot like you.

Don't challenge me if you don't know what you're talking about.

Dumbass.

The people who still thinks metallica are wusses have to get a end to their live. Give some f*cking respect to the band that take metal to a higher level. If you hate metallica, you can't be fan of metal music. Go to a f*cking concert of metallica and you will see who the best (metal) band is on this f*cking planet. They kick every band their a$$es. If you don't like their music (which is a very small chance if you like metal) that's fine, but you can't f*cking hate them and if you come here to say only: f*ck metallica they are gay's or some sh**, then don't come to this f*cking site. Goddamn man, I don't understand ''metalfans'' who don't have any respect for metallica.

I bought the Ride the Lightning albut after hearing Fight Fire with Fire on some lame radio show called "Turn Table Wars" back in 1986. That album totally blew me away. I hadn't heard any of the NWOBM bands, no Venom, no Motorhead, no Angel Witch. Fight Fire with Fire was my introduction to true non-commercial metal. I was, and still am, a die-hard fan of their first 4 albums. I can't tell you how dissapointed I was after that. They deserve all the derogatory "sellout" labels we can put on them. Good. F them.
