Dave Mustaine reflects on Grammy win, house band’s choice of Metallica

Posted by on February 19, 2017

History was made for Dave when Megadeth took home their first Grammy for Best Metal Performance last week (12). It only took them 34 years and 11 nominations to receive a Grammy Award, making the overall twelfth nomination a win. Their luck has always been rocky since losing their first nomination in 1991 for Rust […]

Posted by on February 16, 2017

During the Grammy Awards, we watched the trailer for Apple Music’s new series made out of James Corden’s segment on The Late Show With James Corden called Carpool Karaoke. We noticed flashes of Metallica in there, along with hearing snippets of “Master of Puppets.” Apple Music posted an extended trailer promoting this series. This time […]

Metallica receives an apology from Grammy producer Ken Ehrlich

Posted by on February 16, 2017

The MetalliGa Grammy disastrous “Moth Into Flame” performance seems to have (sort of) come to a close. Longtime Grammy Awards producer Ken Ehrlich spoke with the Associated Press on Wednesday (15) about the inevitable mishaps on Music’s Biggest Night, from James Hetfield’s microphone being unplugged to a photo of CeCe Winans being shown instead of Shirley […]

Lars Ulrich reaffirms that Metallica is goo goo for Gaga

Posted by on February 15, 2017

The A.V. Club spoke with Metallica’s Lars Ulrich about the Grammys and tentative future collaborations with Lady Gaga. He admitted that Metallica doesn’t just pick anyone to share the stage with, as he said, “we try to cherry-pick them a little more.” Metallica was basically curious what they would sound like with James Hetfield sharing […]

Lars Ulrich talks Grammys on Late Late Show

Posted by on February 15, 2017

Lars Ulrich continued to roam through LA, and last night he stopped by The Late Late Show With James Corden to discuss what went wrong at the Grammys. Looking at the video, Lars remained pretty calm about it.  Corden blatantly asked, “There were some technical issues in James’ mic, how did you feel afterward, I thought you […]

Metallica/Lady Gaga’s performance with Hetfield’s mic on shows what it should’ve sounded like

Posted by on February 14, 2017

Aside from a possible (but unlikely) apology from the Recording Academy, hopefully, this is the last time we mention what went wrong at the Grammys until next year. The technical difficulties Metallica ran into while performing “Moth Into Flame” were pretty inescusable. Everyone seemed as  baffled as we were, and after seeing a recent video […]

Stagehand “accidentally” pulled Metallica’s plug at the Grammys

Posted by on February 13, 2017

The Grammys were one hell of a night. Adele got a redo, while Twenty One Pilots claimed their award pantsless, since that’s what how they first watched the awards together (we wish we were making that up). We have already said what we didn’t like about the awards, but James Hetfield”s mic disappearance during the Metallica/Lady Gaga collaboration topped the list, and […]

Metallica featured in ‘Carpool Karaoke’ commercial during Grammys

Posted by on February 13, 2017

At a certain point, let’s say after Metallica and Lady Gaga performed, the commercials were about as interesting as the performances at last night’s Grammys. It’s no secret that Metallica had several technical issues and no one really knew what was going on with Beyonce’s performance. But some ads like Chick-Fil-A’s Cows VR one with it’s Starship/Mannequin flashback, were […]

About last night… The Grammys disappoint metal again

Posted by on February 13, 2017

We’ll start off by saying this – we know, the Grammys don’t care much about metal. Music’s Biggest Night (or so they call it) has paid lip service to metal since 1989, the first year they gave an award to heavy stuff. After making their network debut with a blistering version of “One,” Metallica promptly […]

Metallica and Lady Gaga’s Grammy performance marred by Grammys

Posted by on February 12, 2017

  When we first heard about Lady Gaga sharing the stage with Metallica, our first thoughts were, how can a pop icon mix with metal legends? We would’ve thought the performance would be a known track from the Black Album such as “Enter Sandman.” However, the performance was not what any of us would’ve expected. First […]
