Description

In hard rock history, there is the time before Metallica and there is everything that has come since: metal, punk, industrial, grunge, alternative - all of it absorbed, transformed, and reinvented by the band that, for decades, has ruled as both the Beatles and the Stones of heavy music. From garage rock to the avant-garde, indie pop to hardcore punk and, of course, all shades of metal, "If You Like Metallica" ...illuminates the sounds and styles that influenced and have been influenced by this band, in addition to non-musical elements such movies, books, and cultural iconoclasts. Just as Metallica expanded heavy metal to new meanings and new possibilities, "If You Like Metallica" ...expands being a fan of the band to an education and a treasure hunt that, put as bluntly as a devil-fingered salute to the face, rocks.

About Author

MIKE McPADDEN is the author of Heavy Metal Movies: The 666 Most Headbanging Films of All Time, the head writer at MrSkin.com, and the editor of multiple volumes of Mr. Skin's Skincyclopedia. A punk in the '80s, he came to Metallica mid-decade upon seeing a Mohawk-headed, safety-pinned lovely in a RIDE THE LIGHTNING T-shirt. When he drank, he drank Jagermeister, because Lars Ulrich told him to. It never helped his guitar playing.
