The Week in Metallica

When it’s a slow news day, I know I can appease the Suck My Rock team with a little Metallica Recap, and this week sure was Metallicalicious.


Saturday

Weezer celebrated the 18th anniversary of their first single “Undone – The Sweater Song” and this time, they really undid it. Rivers admitted to Rolling Stone that the song is a rip off of Metallica’s ‘Welcome Home (Sanitarium)’ and that they were trying to be cool like Velvet Underground but couldn’t escape how metal they were.

Tuesday
Jim Breuer sat down for a rare interview with Metallica back in February, but since he’s such a stoner, the video didn’t get uploaded… until now.

Wednesday
In some British radio poll, Metallica’s “Enter Sandman” was voted the #1 track. Just another boring day bein’ Metallica.

Thursday
Slayer’s Kerry King (of gossip) started some rumor about a quadruple bill featuring Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer and Anthrax. He heard it from someone who heard it from someone who heard it from Lars who might be retarded anyway.

Friday
Metalheads went apeshit when they found out that apes stop going apeshit when you play Metallica. Shit is like Xanax for monkeys (or, wait, maybe not).

It should at the very least be better than the supergroup of Dave’s former bandmate. If you want to see just how super this supergroup is, find out where to go after the jump.
