The band’s biggest moment came in 1976, when they became the first American band to perform on the cover of the US magazine Rolling Stone.
The band also made a name for themselves by touring Europe, where they became famous for playing their iconic songs live.
The band’s latest album, Metallica: Through the Never, has become a major commercial success and has been praised for its soaring songs, which include ‘Crusade’, ‘Oathkeeper’, ‘Godspeed’, and ‘Nevermind’.
But the band’s fans have been disappointed by the lack of new material in recent years.
The metal group have made a career out of their live performances, and they have been known to change the band name to cover songs at the last minute.
In the early 2000s, they started doing so after a fan said they could not sing their own song, because Metallica was too similar to Nirvana’s band.
The group have had a number of different versions of the name, including the one Metallica had been known by when they were still called Slayer.
