i guess if you can't make any good new music sue the pants off people who like your old stuff.... very lame metallica.

Metallica has the right to give yes or no to their own music to be used on GH3, they give the answer. Not Octane/Activision & Harmonix.

It was called the Black Album

DrPirate3690d ago

Yep, Black Album, arguably one of the best Metal albums ever released.

Before they went downhill :(

No. It was And Justice for all.

Besides, Slayer and Megadeth are better than Metallica....

Metallica is like kiss; they are a business band now. I wonder what Cliff Burton would think if he saw what metallica has become. I once loved metallica like my own child and now i hate them, so sad.

F*ck you Metallica you sell-out f*cks.Didn't they record songs for the purpose of this game? I recall they gave permission to GH3 to use the song "One".

Now they do this> You backstabbing pieces of sh*t.

Iron Maiden for life.

Just wow. I would care but Metallica sux.

Never underestimate the stupidity of people in an over-rated, second rate metal band I guess.
