In other Metallica news: There have been reports that their official site got hacked. The hack was in response to the bands controversial decision to sue Napster and several Universities for issues relating to MP3 trading (See  Metallica Want’s to get Paid).  The hackers replaced the sites start page with a statement that read “Leave Napster Alone” . The ever vigilant web masters at metallica.com quickly discovered the hack and returned the start page to normal.
