Jay-Z VS Metallica Mix

The METALLICA fan site Inter Sandman posted the following update:

"Some of you may know [rapper] JAY-Z released an album in 2003 called The Black Album. And we all know METALLICA's eponymous 1991 album was quickly dubbed 'The Black Album'.

"DJ Spooky is taking both Black Albums and creating JAY-Z vs. METALLICA. We don't know if this is an upcoming album or what it is... but you can listen to a preview here (MP3, file size approx. 7 MB)."

I found this quite humorous, as when hearing my coworkers talk of the Jay-Z/Beatles "Grey Album" mix, I made some derogatory remark about Jay-Z using "The Black Album" after Metallica's self-titled (commonly referred to as "The Black Album"). It sounds like many others felt the same way.

I'll agree with mybroth there. The very idea that Metallica tracks should be mixed with bullsh** rap is absolute blasphemy.

FUKK YOU JAY-Z AND FUKK VERTIGO RECORDS FOR ALLOWING THIS

you are all uncultured a$$holes. metallica is the greatest metal band of all time. jay-z is one of the greatest rappers of all time. mixing it together was a damn good idea. i guarantee cheap cologne is making more money than all you pathetic loser a$$holes. the greay album is even better, and the beatles are a million time more talented and respected than metallica. grow up.
