The Lyrics

I can't believe back in the 80's I thought these guys ruled. RIP Cliff, the REAL fans haven't forgotten
Once upon a time you know that we ruled the scene
To all the cool kids we were the speed metal kings
But Cliff Burton died and things were never the same
Now we're greedy old farts and our music is lame

Now we are what we never said we would be
Master of Puppets ancient history
Now we have no clue Bob Rock is on the base
St. Anger will be another egg on our face

We're worshipped as gods by drones on MTV
We got all the fame and we got all the money
So don't hold your breath for "Kill 'em All II"
We should have kept Mustaine then maybe we'd still be cool

Hell yeah man! Cliff and Dave were Metallica! That band totally sucks and St. Anger should secure them as a laughing stock as if Load and Reload weren't enough. Awesome writing dude! You hit the nail right on the (metal)head!

You used our melody! We're suing you! You're going to Metallica jail! We have the right as Metallica Inc. to preserve and protect our good name! I demand AmIRight delete this parody or we'll sue them too! Hey wait, there's more than one Metallica parody here!! That's it, I'm collecting names of all parody authors who have tried to make fun of us by using our song lyrics without permission! I'll have my lawyers find you. You're all going to jail!!!

Whoa, Dave Mustaine used to be in Metallica? I assume this was before they formed Megadeth...

Aaron: Yes, Dave Mustaine was one of the original members of Metallica, and the one who basically supplied them with equipment during the early days. He did have some problems with handling his booze back then, and with that as an excuse, James and Lars kicked him out of the band THE SAME DAY as they signed their first record deal. (How´s that for greed?). If you check the credits on the first two Metallica albums you´ll se that DM is listed as co-author on several of the best tracks. If you check out the lyrics to Megadeth´s "Go to Hell" and compares them to Metallicas "Enter Sandman" you´ll find some interesting "punches". So don´t expect them to reunite in this lifetime.
