I love Metallica. Not everything they've done musically or otherwise per se, but I feel very fortunate to have grown up on their music.
As a fifteen year old boy growing up in the small town of Vernon, Texas waiting for ...And Justice For All to hit the streets I felt like me and a few of my close friends were onto something no one else was. At that time hair bands were all the rage with bands like Motley Crue, Cinderella and Poison dominating the air waves and while those bands had done a few songs here and there that I like, those bands just didn't speak to me. Their music was all about partying and getting laid and that most certainly wasn't goin' on in my adolescence.
