  • Their live shows live on this.
    • One specific moment occurred during the recent "Big Four" tour with fellow thrash pioneers Megadeth, Anthrax, and Slayer, with all four bands performing a portion of Diamond Head's classic "Am I Evil?" on the same stage, in unison. To see these four bands actually performing in the same show together had to be something special, and a crowning moment for all involved.
      • Actually, it was only Metallica, Megadeth, and Anthrax playing "Am I Evil?" because the guys from Slayer were backstage editing their concert footage for the satellite broadcast.
    • The 1996 MTV Europe Music Awards, after being told not to use any profanity on the show, they replied with covers of "Last Caress" and "So What".
    • Metallica became the first band in the seven continents... by playing in Antarctica (equally awesome, weird, and hilarious).
  • At one point during the making of their self titled album, Hetfield reached his breaking point with Bob Rock when one day, Rock was startled by a homoerotic ad in a magazine. Hetfield responded by gathering as much gay porn as he could and plastering the room with it the next day.
