Guitar Hero: Metallica

I enjoyed the demo a lot but I do like Metallica. They were one of the first bands I got into other than Soundgarden. I'll probably pick this up when its 40-50 bucks, heck I picked up Aerosmith from gamefly used around 23. I see more value in this title though, more features and better songs. I want the drums so I can use that double bass, lower the drums price dang it!

Sue what I think gold meant us that most of them bands swear a lot in their songs. Like example Slipknot song I guess maybe u havent heard them but they say the F word a lot lol!

To the guy that says Metallica is pop or boing your a fool for thinking so. I guess its your opinion but still your opinion is lame. I guess master of puppets is slow huh? Or battery?? Almost every song on justice was kick ass! I like harder stuff then them but to say they suck your just talking shit.

oh yeah, and gold, i think you have to have either strong sexual themes and extreme violence to make a game m rated. unless you replaced the background with porno's or violent eviscerations of kittens, you cant make an m rated guitar hero.

I really wish they could release an "M Rated" version of "Guitar Hero" because if the developers did that, we could finally play a large amount of songs we currently arent able too. Think hollywood undead SlipKnot judas priest cradle of filth marilyn manson etc. What do you think? PSN ID: ColorPhoto Gamertag: Gold Contaxt

Like Burdman624 said, let's just be glad it isn't country, or, god forbid GH: Jonas Brothers *shudders* As to Metallica, I like them as a band, they're good in their own right. As for the greatest, well.... after the first 3 albums, they did kind of go a little bit down hill, lol

I would also like to add that it is good to see more metal music being implemented and not country...

I for one am reallly excited about this game... ever since i saw the small teaser trailer on the GHWT disc. I have been a fan of Metallica since the Master of Puppets album and can't wait to play all their old stuff on this game (Ride the Lightning, Kill em All). Finally, Activision/Neversoft put together a solid track list!

I can only assume from the posts here, that so far I may be the only person to have heard of Metallica before Napster. Sure Metallica may be soft now, but they are the pioneers of thrash metal. I'm not saying they are the greatest band alive. Just think before you start ranting away. (btw - slayer? how many people hated GH3 because of that song?) I'm excited about this game, GHWT was 50% awesome and 50% crap songs. I'm sure that applies to just about everyone.

lol, I don't mean to be a troll on here... But fans don't mean anything for how good a band is. Otherwise you would be admitting that Jonas Brothers is better than your beloved Metallica. And trust me, you are talking to the wrong person if you want to debate, "true" metal. Because first the truer bands are all based on opinion, and second, skill and composition are what metal is all about. Metallica puts my mom to sleep, who loves pop mind you... so I will admit that other than the vocalist they do have talent, but the composition is boring and far from "metal." Metallica is hard rock.

You people are F***ing idiots. Metallica is one of the greatest bands alive. Slayer isn't even a good band compared to Metallica. Go compare the amount of fans. I recomend you listen to some good metal (ie. Metallica, iron maiden) and then post again. This will be the best guitar hero game yet.

Oh, and I forgot to add... obviously Slayer is not as popular as Metallica. Slayer isn't even on the radio. Where as Metallica is on every pop station world wide. But when it comes to true thrash metal, where fast guitars with complicated solos are the key, why would they not shoot for something along those lines? And if not Slayer, then someone else? And I highly doubt they would have troubles with a contract with Slayer seeing that Reign In Blood was on GH3

you are 100% right that it is for money... And I find it upsetting that they would make a "more metal" guitar hero based around a band that isn't metal at all... but wished they were, so they put it on t-shirts and make sure that metal is in their name. Guitar hero should be about the instrumentals and composition of the songs. Shoot, even my mom finds Metallica boring. And you are right, I do not have to like or buy this installment. And unfortunately I will not. I could deal with maybe 3 Metallica songs, especially with such other as Machine Head on the set list. I just hope that next time they will go for the music, not the posers...

@ Tiamat> You don't believe that Guitar Hero would do what exactly to a "die-hard metal fan?" If the 'what' is why would Activision Blizzard make a 'Guitar Hero: Metallica', the reason is simple. It will make money. Nobody says you have to buy it or even like it. Why not Slayer, you say? Maybe they are not as popular in pop-culture as you think. Maybe getting the band to agree on a contract is problematic. Maybe Slayer is too hardcore for the average consumer. Think about this; why is there no "Rock Band: Led Zeppelin"? Why no "Singstar: The Supremes"? Just because there are so many bands better than AC/DC, Aerosmith, and Abba, doesn't mean they can (or want) a headliner music game.

NOOOO!!!! How horrible... I can't believe GH would do that to a die hard metal fan... Metallica has to be the biggest group of idiots ever... Even their beginning wasn't that great! and they only got worse!!! give us a real metal GH! like GH: Slayer or something amazing like that!!! Or maybe dwell into darker realms like Opeth or something...
