Leave it to Metallica to hog 4 of Rainbow's best songs. Sadly missing Gates of Babylon and Heaven and Hell. Should be interesting anyways.

Hey that Killswitch cover is badass. Just because they play metalcore doesnt mean they didnt do the song justice.

Yeah Corey isn't bad by any means but just out of principle I don't think he should partake in this.

KSE's "Holy Diver" is terrible and Corey Taylor is bound to ruin "Rainbow In The Dark"

Jesus Christ. James Hetfield singing Stargazer is something I never want to hear.

Instrumentally speaking, Metallica might be interesting, but James voice... and even though I don't like Motorhead, I think Starstruck will be perfect for them, as well as The Temple of the King for Scorpions

"James Hetfield singing Stargazer is something I never want to hear."

Few singers could do Stargazer like Dio...Roy Khan and Nils Patrik Johansson (Astral Doors) are the only ones that come to mind.
