    Yeah, it was the new video for the song "St Anger". By the looks of the pictures, it look pretty damn cool. I cant wait to see it.

    Check out the inmate "enjoying himself" :rolleyes:

    Metallica's new stuff just isn't doing it for me. They played a little snippet of one of their new songs on the radio yesterday, and it sounded like they've been listening to alot of Nothingface lately. Nothingface is good and all, but Metallica just.... i dunno.... its depressing... I started playing bass because of metallica back in the early 90's.... and now look.....

  3. I think I'd be a lot more nervous performing in front of an "intimate" prison crowd than in front of 50,000 people. :D

    First Johnny Cash, then Steve Earle, and now Metallica. I think it's cool that they went and played in a prison.

    We actually have a local blues band here, that does a little prison tour at the end of every year.

    We have to pay $70 to see Metallica, and criminals get to see them for free? What the hell is wrong with this country?
  6. Wait, are these the same Metallica that were -more or less- responsible for the end of Napster?

  7. Metallica play in a prison....Metallica tracks played repeatedly to break the will of Iraqi POW's-
    a connection? subliminal messages in Metallica's music, maybe?


    BTW I wonder what the inmate was "enjoyng himself" over....
    was he imagining the stacks of cash rolling in off the advance orders for St. Anger:p
