Metallica Want More Bands To Fly The Flag For Metal


(Classic Rock) Metallica's James Hetfield wants more bands to become flag bearers for heavy metal. While the singer humbly says he and his bandmates don't "wear that crown," he adds that, as a rock fan, he'd welcome more rival acts to knock them off their "pedestal."

He tells ET Canada: "We don't wear that crown. I mean, we haven't picked it up and said, 'We're gonna fly the flag for heavy metal.' Number one, number 10, whatever it may be, I'm grateful for it - but the fact is that people have kind of put us on a sort of pedestal.

"We'll gladly run with it for as long as we can. But I'm a music fan - I would love someone else to try and grab that flag and run with it too. The more rock the better, I say." Watch the full interview here.
