Metallica is an American heavy metal band formed in October 1981. With over 100 million albums sold worldwide, they arethemost commercially successful heavy metal act in history. They are also the seventh biggest act in America. After buildingafollowing through its role in the development of heavy metal in the 1980s, the band broadened its audience in the early 1990s.Accordingly, the band stood as the most commercially visible example of the metal genre for most of that decade. In contrast,Metallica's vastly increased commercial success was accompanied by stylistic changes that fostered accusations of "sellingout"by some long-time fans. Although their recent albums have sold well, these fans feel that Metallica abandoned theirpurethrash-metal roots. Some fans also feel that Metallica's 1999-2001 stances against Internet file sharing deeply damagedtheirreputation.

In 2003 Metallica released their 8th studio album, entitled St. Anger, a collection of the most aggressive music they hadwrittenin a decade, todeeply divided critical reviews and comparatively mediocre sales figures, though their 2004 "Madly InAnger WithThe World" tour in support ofthe album remained very successful.Metallica's next album, Death Magnetic, wasreleased onSeptember 12th with some positive feedback. Although, the notoriety of the album's production played as one ofthe reasonsmost fans criticized Death Magnetic. « hide
