* NeverLiveItDown: St. Anger. Noone is going to let James forget "I Am The Table" either.

*** Other songs from this period that can qualify for this include "Where the Wild Things Are", "Devil's Dance", "Low Man's Lyric", "Fixxxer", "Bleeding Me", "The Outlaw Torn", "Ronnie", and "Hero of the Day", though if you ask a dozen Metallica fans what the best songs from this period are, you'll probably get a dozen different answers. It's pretty rare for Metallica fans to dislike every single song on ''Load'' and ''Reload'', though it's also a pretty common opinion that they would have been much better if they had been trimmed significantly or even trimmed enough to fit on a single CD.

* AuthorsSavingThrow: The 2016 remaster of ''Death Magnetic'', which has much more dynamic range and much less severe clipping issues than the original version. It's not as dynamic as most people's ''Guitar Hero III'' remixes, but it still sounds a lot better than the original version of the album.



* ContestedSequel: Legitimately every album, with the possible exceptions of ''[=ReLoad=]'' to ''Load'' (because they're basically a double album released separately) and ''Lulu'' to everything, because everyone hates it. Even '''''their first album''''' is one.

*** Music/LouReed was quite possibly being a troll with this album. Remember, he may have been able to craft masterpieces with Music/VelvetUnderground, but this is the same man who brought us ''Metal Machine Music''.

*** One's mileage may vary on how much Jason's parts clash with Hetfield and Hammett's. There are some people who quite like them.
** ''Death Magnetic'' is often criticised for its mastering, because the original version of the album is a sonic abortion that provides one of the worst examples of the LoudnessWar. However, the digital clipping that people dislike about the album was not introduced in the mastering process; the album's mastering engineer Ted Jensen expressed frustration that the album's mixes came in already clipped, so there was nothing he could do (effective declippers did not exist at the time the album was made). You will routinely see references to the album having "terrible mastering", when in fact the problem was by all indications introduced during the mixing phase. It also appears that the album was mixed that way at Metallica and Rick Rubin's insistence; several engineers who have worked with Rubin have indicated that he has insisted on having the album's mix/master be digitally clipped. Metallica have somewhat redeemed themselves with the 2016 remaster of the album, which is actually mastered fairly quietly by contemporary standards and doesn't have much clipping.
* NewbieBoom: After "One" and its video were released, and again when it was featured in ''VideoGame/GuitarHero''. An even bigger one happened after the release of ''Metallica''.



* SacredCow: Both ''Master Of Puppets'' and ''Ride The Lightning'' have become this within the metal community.

** WinBackTheCrowd: If you can get past the [[LoudnessWar mastering]], many fans consider ''Death Magnetic'' to be a return to classic Metallica following the widely-disliked albums ''Load'', ''[=ReLoad=]'', and ''St.Anger''. The release of ''Beyond Magnetic'' soon after much-disliked album Lulu seems to be this as well.
*** Connecting to ''Death Magnetic'', many fans '''hate''' Rick Rubin for being involved with the [[LoudnessWar mastering]] of it, pointing out the only reason the album is low on some of their lists are because of how poor the mastering is. It's even become a running gag for fans make their ''own remasters'' because of it.

* VindicatedByHistory: Criticism towards the Black Album has softened over the years, although it's not as loved as the previous 4 albums it's now considered one of their best albums and is definitely more loved than Load, Reload, St. Anger or Lulu.

* WinBackTheCrowd: ''Death Magnetic'' did this to a certain extent after the divisive ''St. Anger''. In respect to the album itself, the 2016 remaster largely fixed fans' LoudnessWar complaints. To a lesser extent, this also happened again with ''Beyond Magnetic'' after the even more divisive ''Lulu''.
