Metallica Not Sucking Like a Turbo-charged Hoover!

I pretty much abhor all metal, so it was with a great amount of trepidation that I clicked play on this video:

This is one of my favorite songs of the Southern sub-genre of classic rock, and that’s saying something. Especially since other bands in that group with Lynrd Skynrd are The Outlaws, Marshall Tucker, The Allman Brothers, ZZ Top and Molly Hatchet. Anyway, I figured they’d give it the heavy metal ballad treatment and I can’t think of anything worse. An old friend of mine named Jake Berger (original guitar player for psychobilly band “The Belmont Playboys”, if he sounds familiar to you) always bemoaned the existence of the metal ballad and I couldn’t agree more. And Jake is more metal than any of you fuckers. Aside from LA native Hetfield faking a Southern twang, they did a good job with this though,  so kudos to you Metallica for not totally sucking!
