Metallica Fans Refuse to Dream It’s Over

    I love how between this, and the “We want Barabbas” ire that Crowded House provoked from the throng of Rage fans at Coachella, that these perfectly pleasant, unassuming Kiwi senior citizens have become the scourge of metal fans everywhere. Oh, wait. Did I say, “metal fans?” I meant “dickbags.”

    I am a Metallica fan from way back (back when they were good, whatever that means) and on their best day they cant touch Neil Finn’s mediocre work…

    More than 400 people watched Live Earth?

    The strange thing is that I’m sure that Crowded House were on a lot earlier than Metallica was at the time so the Beeb could have shown all of the Metallica set and then shown the CH bit during some down time (or at least when the Pussycat Dolls were on).

    The best part of the Metallica set was when they were on stage with Spinal Tap, ‘cos Lars wasn’t there…
