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?

Posted by on February 7, 2017

The last time we saw Lady Gaga was on Sunday, when she literally dropped the mic after an impressive halftime performance at the Super Bowl, then dove offstage. She’s going to reappear on a stage this weekend, but with Metallica. Late last night, a fan posted a snippet of a Grammys commercial that says “Lady […]
