  • Axl sounds better now than Carson Palmer throws now. So there's that.
  • And how many straight years have they not been doing training camp in Flagstaff? Training at 7,000 ft was kind of one of their strategies...
  • I mean, say what you want about Metallica, they are not Axl Rose's kind of washed up.
  • If the team doesn't like it, their owners should pay for their own damned stadium instead of having the public subsidize them with tax dollars
  • Listen, I'm as horrified by what Metallica's become as the next guy but... its 2017- 34 years after Kill 'em All came out- and they're still playing stadiums. Don't know how that qualifies as "washed up".
  • Does subby realize that GbR's tour last year was one of 2016's highest grossing?

    /July 20 Gillette Stadium show was wicked

    The fact they're playing stadiums shows what the problem is.  It's not that they're unpopular, it's that the group that made Ride the Lightning would hate these Gucci wearing assclowns.

    GbR, of course, being the hybrid tribute band Guided by Roses.

    Yes, I'm "only listen to Justice for all and before" guy too; but they are not "washed up" by any stretch of the imagination.

    I agree, and I like up through Re-load, but post Justice they were a different band.  Bob Rock both made and destroyed the band at the same time.  However it is amusing watching latter day fans get scared while the crowd is chanting Die, during Creeping Death.
  • I love their music.  I do.  I'm a Metallica fan.  I celebrate the band's entire catalog.

    St. Anger's not for me, but that's my problem, isn't it?

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  • If they're filling stadiums theyre not washed out.  Perhaps you can argue they've become a tribute band of themselves but that's something different.
  • You know it's sad but true.

    this.  saw them 15 years ago, and they were "washed up" then.  they opened for the Rolling Stones in San Francisco.  Incredible night.

    I need to clarify - St. Anger isn't that bad if you listen to these guys do it:
