    MTV Icon Metallica

    Just wanted to know, did anyone watch this? What did you think of the various artists and how well they did their own versions of Metallica's songs? I thought Sum41 at the very beginning did very well with "For Whom the Bell Tolls" and "Master of Puppets" and Korn did so-so playing "One". As for the rest, come on... Avril Lavigne doing "Fuel" was atrocious, and Snoop Dog with "Sad But True" was just simply SAD. Jim Bruer was kinda funny. I didn't see what other artists come on after that cause I had to go to bed. Anybody gonna start watching Head Bangers Ball on MTV when it comes on?

    dude i was just about to post something about this and then i click on general discussions and i see your topic..haha weird

    you missed metallica play? they rocked...the new song frantic..they only played about a minute and a half (mtv cut it off) but it was great...im an avid metallica fan (look at my avatar)...theyre my favorite band for about 8 years (since i was 8)

    i got my tv tuner card to work and its coming back on in about half an hour...the only acts i lived was sum41..they were the most decent throughout the entire show

    Sorry to bust everyone's bubbles, but Metallica is a band that's been done with. Admit it, since Black, nothing they've done has had the ferocious thrashyness that permeated their 80s records.

    There're far better metal bands out there than Metallica. In case you cannot let go of Metallica fever, at least check out this band Blistered Earth, who sound like as if Metallica just released another AJFA.

    Support the underground, abandon the mainstream.
