(Gibson) Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich was recently asked by Rolling Stone to name his 15 favorite metal and hard rock albums. Guns N' Roses' 1987 blockbuster Appetite for Destruction, AC/DC's 1977 collection Let There Be Rock and Deep Purple's 1972 live album Made in Japan all made the list.

On Guns N' Roses, Ulrich calls Appetite for Destruction "the blueprint for literally thousands of bands." True! AC/DC's Let There Be Rock, according to Ulrich, is AC/DC's "heaviest...densest...most energetic record."

Regarding Made in Japan, Ulrich states, "Deep Purple obviously had a handful of insane songs, from 'Highway Star' to 'Smoke on the Water' to 'Speed King' to all the rest of them. But there's probably no other band in rock where the difference between the album versions and the live versions are more radical." See Lars' full list here.
