NPR: If You Think Metallica's All About Headbanging, 'S&M2' Might Change Your Mind
It's hard to overstate just how huge Metallica is. Since the band's first album, Kill 'Em All, came out in 1983, they've become one of the best-selling bands of the modern era. They have an enormous fan base spread all over the world, and they've won pretty much any music-related award a rock band can win. But if you think Metallica is all moshing and headbanging, its latest album, S&M2, might change your mind.
