It’s no secret that Metallica gets a lot of haters. I believe all the Metallica hate started after their Napster controversy and it started after the release of their Load/Reload albums. Before the Black album was released, Metallica was the most respected band on the planet. Now they happen to be the most hated band on the planet.
I can never understand why. I see nothing wrong with them at all. I’ve always loved Metallica and been loyal to them through and through.
James Hetfield has something to say about the Metallica haters and just simply says, “We don’t give a crap”. Then James goes on to say that they love what they do and they make music for themselves ’cause they like it.
That’s a great attitude to have. If you’re in a band and a solo artist who gets a lot of haters, best attitude to have is not give a shit what anyone thinks about you. If you like music and being a musician just play music ’cause you like it.
In the past, I used to have a problem with dealing with a lot of haters myself. Believe me, I’ve had a lot of haters back then and I’m sure I still do but you know what? I don’t give a fuck anymore! If you want to have a successful music life, you can’t let negativity bring you down so the best thing to do is to ignore all negativity. When you get out there playing music, whether you like it or not, you’re gonna have to deal with some negativity ’cause not everything in your music life will be positive, ya know? You gotta stay above the haters & negativity as best as you can.
I’m pretty sure a lot of people out there still don’t like me but that’s alright. It’s all cool. You don’t play music to please the haters, you’re there to please yourself.
Whether you like Metallica or not, you can’t deny their passion for music ’cause they really do show it. Watch their live concerts for proof on that. When Metallica plays on stage, they’re one of the very few bands who looks like they’re having fun on stage. You don’t see it that much with bands these days ’cause most bands look bored playing on stage. Not Metallica. They have a lot of energy on stage and they know how to give their fans a good time.
Metallica freakn’ rules. I will always love them and can’t wait for their new record!
