Seriously, these guys are as far removed from their audience as Elvis was at the end. That last "St Anger" CD sounded like they were trying to reach the Slipknot kids. Even Newstead got off the sinking ship years too late. But I have to admit their mid to late 80's stuff is impressive.

And BTW James Hetfield is pretty much bald, time to shave it clean dude. He looks like he's getting ready for the mother of all comb-overs.

What other band has gone to such lengths to shit on their audience, only to have their fans continue to lap up the cold slop they keep dishing out?

I have seen bands throw hot bacon on their audience, but that was back in the day. Today, everyone's all serious n' stuff.

I saw the trailer for this when I went to see F 911 (do they really think those movies share the same audience?). Cringeworthy!

This is one "hoser" who will be giving it a pass. G'day!

Hey, so did I! And yeah, they do share the same audience. I'd see it on cheap night. Or at least rent it. Some of us have our dumb metal-head dayze to rest back on...when the time come :)

Oh...I saw the trailer for this when I went to see that Ben Stiller movie, Dodgeball, with my brother. But I suppose that at least some people that like Metallica also like dumb comedy. They played it before Fahrenheit 9/11? That's sort of funny.

As a side note, they also played the trailer for F9/11 before Dodgeball.

wow, that Lars Ulrich is a great actor! He plays an asshole drummer really well! Oscar worthy, in my opinion.

Please someone make them go away....
