Could they do us all a favor and kick Anthrax out of the big four? Pick up Exodus or another band that has the talent to be in it.

If they do US dates, itll probably just be a few, New York, LA, etc. They'll play the biggest arenas and make tons of money, then Metallica will retire. I;m calling it now

I dont know. Does Metallica headline every one of these shows? They are the only band to have sold over 100,000,000 albums world wide. I think their total stands at about 120 mill.
