James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo might not be recognizable on their own, but together they form Metallica, the best heavy metal band of all-time. Formed in 1981, these legendary rockers are going on four decades of delivering genre-altering music that has attracted fans from all over the world.
From an underground heavy metal band to selling almost 150 million albums worldwide and performing at the Grammy's, fewer bands have experienced a meteoric rise quite like Metallica. In the mid-80s everything started to change for the band. They experienced highs and lows that formed them into the people and band that the are today. In 1986, they released Master of Puppets, an album that is now certified six times platinum in North America. The album received positive reviews from Day 1 and even led to a tour with the legendary Ozzy Osbourne. Things were certainly trending up for Metallica. However, on a European leg of the tour, a fatal bus crash killed their then bassist, Cliff Burton.
After a successful decade in the 90s, highlighted by the release of one their most listened to tracks of all-tim, "Enter Sandman," the band finally became whole again in 2003. The bassist was a fluid position for Metallica until Robert Trujillo stepped in during 2003. The band had a number one album in 2008 in the form of Death Magnetic, and by 2009 Metallica was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Metallica tickets had become the must-have ticket of almost any band in music. The band's pace of releasing music has slowed down a little bit, but with a catalog of hits to choose from, you can't find a fan that doesn't want to see Metallica perform live.
