This Hall & Oates x Metallica Mashup Is Almost Great

Maybe Hall & Oates can stop Brooklyn-based cereal purveyors from cleverly punning on their name, but they cannot stop the creative people of this good internet from mashing up their music with Metallica. Below is a mashup of "I Can't Go For That" and "Enter Sandman" that almost, almost works. No matter how closely… More »

Scenes From The San Jose Sharks’ Metallica Night

You will be hard-pressed to find many aging rock stars who enjoy their aging-rock-star status more than the members of Metallica. Case in point: the San Jose Sharks' Metallica Night.

Watch Metallica Play Their Goofiest Song On The Late Late Show

Metallica are currently in the midst of a week-long run on Craig Ferguson's just-about-to-end Late Late Show.

Metallica, Taylor Swift, No Doubt Set For Rock In Rio’s US Debut

Rock In Rio is a major music festival that got its start in Brazil and has had iterations in both Portugal and Spain. Perusing the history page of their past line-ups is like a laundry list of big-name musicians. Now, the organization has announced that it's bringing the festival stateside to Las Vegas and… More »

Watch Metallica’s SportsCenter Promo

Say what you will about Metallica (I'm prone to superlatives, personally), but those dudes have a pretty good sense of humor about themselves (check Lars' cameo in Get Him To The Greek for evidence of this). Now they're doing a new promo for SportsCenter, built around the conceit that following Mariano Rivera'sMore »

Metallica – “Lords Of Summer”

Metallica have been slowly creeping toward a new album, their first since 2008's Death Magnetic, and that prospect began to come into slight focus back in March, when the band debuted a new track, "Lords Of Summer," at a show in Colombia, followed by a "Garage Demo Version" of that same cut a… More »

Chad Smith Vs. Will Ferrell Drum-Off Now Involves Lars Ulrich, Is No Longer Funny

Chad Smith and Will Ferrell are famous for different reasons, but they've also been famous, for a minute, for looking exactly like each other. They took that whole celebrity-resemblance thing to its natural conclusion last month with their Tonight Show drum-off. But now they're pushing the joke way beyond where it needs to go,… More »

Watch James Hetfield, Billie Joe Armstrong, & Joe Satriani Mash Up Bob Seger & Green Day At Acoustic-4-A-Cure

Earlier this week, Metallica did a sublimely weird four-song acoustic set 10th Annual MusiCares MAP Fund Benefit Concert, and last night, the band's frontman, James Hetfield, did another unplugged performance for charity, this time at the Acoustic-4-A-Cure benefit.

Watch Metallica’s Acoustic Covers Set For MusicCares

Metallica have spent the last eight months or so doing really cool shit, from their weird-but-fun concert flick Through The Never to their one-time-only sets at the Apollo and Antarctica to Kirk Hammett's horror-movie festival to their wildly anachronistic performance of "One" at the Grammys to their fucking awesome Dio… More »

The Black Market: The Month In Metal – March 2014

I spent the second week of March at SXSW, and I spent a pretty good percentage of my SXSW at metal shows. In truth, most of the people I talked to at the festival seemed to agree that this year's metal lineups were pretty lackluster, but even so, every day the genre offered numerous act… More »
