Easy way to know if you're a true Metallica fan? What was their first album, Kill 'Em All
, originally going to be called? If you know the answer to that without looking it up (and please don't post the answer guys), consider yourself a true Metallica fan. If you don't, well, you may be a fan now, but some of us were fans way, way back.
I don't think that's such a great litmus test though. I must've been a year old when Kill 'Em All was released. So, there are some of us who can't go way, way back, but are serious fans of Metallica anyway, even though I'm a bigger fan of the other three of The Big Four of Thrash.
BTW, ...And Justice For All was released on my birthday. Get that and consider yourself a true Metallica fan.
Yep, I know the answer to that one.
About 3 months after my birthday.
One year old huh, you're just a kiddo.
Just picking on you in good fun.
True though, there are tons of serious Metallica fans that were born too late to know the answer to the question, or only know it because they heard about it. Some of us old fogeys actually lived through the entire thing. Had the T-Shirts when they first hit the market, went to the original shows, bought the albums the day they were originally released, etc. How would you describe the difference in the two types of fans. Those that went through it "live", and those who studied and learned later. What would you call each group? Personally, I can't put them in the same classification, so help me out here.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
