Who else was nominated? Was it Poison, Queen, Ratt, Motley Crue and Metallica at each other's throats for this? Ballsiest band award? pffft.

Cause I would have still voted Queen over metallica. Freddie Mercury has had more balls than Metallica ever will. unless you count Lars's bathroom coke experiences....

If they were a REAL 'man' network then they would realize that awards shows are for house wives, not men. Unless they are flaming puss bags. What a crock of sh**.

By the way, what exactly makes Metallica the ballsiest band? Selling out to the douche crowd by softening their sound? Or wearing eyeliner and fake eyelashes during Load? Or spilling their guts like little spoiled children on that documentary? Or maybe it's the way Lars and Kirk just ooze manliness and don't have an air of homosexuality to them. Yeah, that last one's gotta be it.

The only thing that could make Metallica the "ballsiest band" is their dedication for touring. Lets face it, they were f***ing road warriors all through the 80s and 90s. Apart from that, I dont get it

You guys are vicious.
LOL.
Vicious but still funny.
I for one am happy Met went back to their old stuff.
Yeah I know it sounds "too" much like the old stuff.
Ya know what, I'd take Death Magnetic over anything Megadeth has done lately.
Or Testament, (watered down death metal).
As for being the ballsiest?
Shoulda gave that one to Slayer.

I don't know, I think Slayer was pretty ballsy asking for their own national day (which I'll celebrate even if it doesn't get passed).

I'm pretty sure sure this show would compare mainstream bands, so compared to coldplay or the Fray, I would say they deserve it. Come on, like the average "man" who watches this show would be listening to real metal?

yeah Metallica deserves it. Going full-out and challenging yourself as a musician, that takes a lot more balls the tuning down to drop-C, screaming the most perverted lyrics imaginable, and pretending to be the most hardcore band on Earth, cuz lately there's way too many bands who think that's the way to go.
