Not Too Bad for a Comeback...

Recommended Reading: Hasty, Kelly. "Metallica Scores Fifth Straight No. 1 Album." Billboard. 17 Sep. 2008.
Metallica is the first group to see five of its albums bow at No. 1 on The Billboard 200. Previously, the act was tied with the Beatles, U2 and the Dave Matthews Band, with four each. It is also Metallica's fifth consecutive studio album to debut at No. 1 and its seventh release to start with more than 300,000 since 1991, when Nielsen SoundScan began tracking data.
There are tons of opinions on this band an their music, but I think they've earned everything they've gotten so far, whether it be platinum records, sold out arenas, Grammies, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominations, etc. I could've put my faith in far worse bands or artists over the last 11 years.
...SMASHING THROUGH THE BOUNDARIES, LUNACY HAS FOUND ME
CANNOT STOP THE BATTERY...
Song of the Moment: "Battery" by Metallica
