But the fact it is actually believable is a crying shame…
Apparently Activision licensed the song One by Metallica for use in its upcoming Guitar Hero III release.
Now they’re being sued for it. Again, I can’t verify this, it’s not on an actual news site… but I think this is a wise move for Metallica if it is true. Simply put, One is a great song. If the yutes of America discovered that Metallica was actually once capable of making great music – it might wedge a spanner in the continuing downward spiral that has ensued ever since Hetfield stopped drinking.
Frankly, I don’t believe Metallica is able to release a groundbreaking Metal record like the old days. The Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, they keep true to the music that made them… Metallica has abandoned it, and their fans for nearly 2 decades now.
St.Anger might as well have been a plane crash in Mississippi, cos nothing short of divine intervention will get them back on top.
