The ''Napster Bad'' series caricatures Metallica--specifically, Lars Ulrich (mispronounced as ul-[[{{Greed}} RICH]]) and James Hetfield--as a group of greedy primitives, upset about their fans giving them slightly smaller oodles of money than usual due to Napster. Other music celebrities, such as DrDre and SherylCrow, also get a lot of flak.

First, a little history. In 2000, {{Metallica}} sued the peer-to-peer service Napster, devoted specifically to sharing MP3 files, for [[DigitalPiracyIsEvil having Metallica songs freely available on their network]]. The lawsuit ended up forcing Napster to ban hundreds of thousands of users, and eventually resulted in the Napster company going bankrupt.
