Migs Blog: Metallica Continues To Rule!

December 15, 2016

I’m already a huge fan of Metallica, but dang…they keep doing awesome stuff that makes me love them even more. 

Of course I will forever love the young and angry thrash metal version of Metallica, but I also love the older “we aren’t taking ourselves overly serious” version too…because even though they are having fun doing interviews to promote this record, when push comes to shove…the band is still creating some heavy and awesome music.  Their new record “Hardwired…To Self Destruct” is on high rotation on my turntable at home…and it is one of those records that gets better with every listen.

Currently my favorite track is “Am I Savage”

I brought up the fact that the band isn’t taking themselves too serious because they were a guest on Jimmy Kimmel’s show…and there was a funny bit that they did where the band  went head to head against a Metallica fan in Metallica trivia!

Of course they also performed while on the show…check them out playing "Atlas, Rise!".

Here they are performing, "For Whom the Bell Tolls".

They were also interviewed by Jimmy, and there were a few fun moments…like when they chatted about if their kids are fans of their music.

I love this story behind the making of their iconic logo!
