Metallica Frontman Laughs Off 'Awesome' Hetfield Memes


(Classic Rock) Metallica frontman James Hetfield thinks the online 'Hetfield Memes' are "awesome." The singer and guitarist is the star of countless memes, with the most famous of them involving his "I am the table" lyric from the track The View, which featured on 2011 Lou Reed & Metallica album Lulu.

But while some might expect the memes to be an annoyance to Hetfield, he insists he finds them funny. In the upcoming issue of Metal Hammer magazine, due out next week, Hetfield says: "It's funny. I love it!

"I love that, I guess, there's a certain look that becomes a representation of sarcasm, or humor, or idiocy. I love the fact that we're recognized, and I got no control over it. What am I gonna do other than laugh at it and enjoy it?" Read more here.
