Underoath Take a Jab at Metallica

Underoath Take a Jab at Metallica was a top story from May and here it is again as we look back at the biggest stories from 2009 so far: (Punknews.org) Apparently unsatisfied with their negative comments about Avenged Sevenfold, Underoath is now setting their sights on Metallica. The band spoke to Metal Hammer saying:

"When we were on tour in 2006/7, the tour manager for Anti-Flag was talking to me, and he asked what my favorite Metallica record was. I said I didn't have one. Not that I liked them all, but I didn't like any. He was like 'what?!' I said I didn't like them, I didn't think they were any good. He got really startled then almost offended. He was literally slamming the bar saying, 'there is no F-ing way you play the music you do, the way you do, and not like Metallica'.

"I can listen to that stuff, and maybe if I was alive 30 years ago it would mean more to me; I respect them, but I just don't like them. I get that they're important, but not to me. For me Kurt Cobain means more: he played like trash but he had an intensity. It's not about your chops, it's about creating a feeling." - more on this story
