when i was in college, back in early 90's, metallica was already a superstar group. More particularly, metallica's album black which hit this country Philippines by storm. I was fascinated by their music. Thus, i , together with my classmates, formed a band. I was the rhythm-lead guitarist then. All my compositions were basically influenced by metallica. although, our band never got into mainstream, we had some couple of gigs exemplifying the influence of this magnificent band, metallica. How i wish i could live the good old days where i can freely express myself as a youth, through music. I thank this metallica for giving me the passion to love music. Now, i am already 32 years old. I still listen to metallica's music; and with the internet and modern technology, i can fully appreciate the technicalities of their craft. Long live metallica.

The original metallica was great! However, I think they have completely sold out and should change their name because they aren't even metal anymore!

Metallica is just one of my many favorites. Awesome band! The used is another. And so why is that you can't express yourself through music any longer? You are never too old! Look at all the old rockers that are still going strong! My brother is 50 and still does gigs. you are still a child.

I think anyone our age has a strong appreciation for Metallica and what they stood for for all of us. I am 30 and Metallica is attached to so many memories I will never forget. My first boyfriend who was also my first love and high school sweetheart introduced me to Metallica. I was a Freshman and a mutual friend of ours had a party at her house. We had just started "going out" that same exact day and so I called and asked if he was coming over. He showed up with his crazy friend (who was walking up the stairs on his hands), and well, anyway...someone just happened to pop in a CD (ok, so maybe it was a tape) and it just so happened to be "Nothing Else Matters" by Metallica. He pulled me close and we danced. I still tear up to that song. Sh!t happens and that was long ago, but everytime I hear that song, I get teary-eyed wondering why it couldn't have worked. It was so much more awesome being in love without baggage!So, for many a reason, but especially "him", I love Metallica.
