MONSTERS OF ROCK

While the majority of metal heads in the early '80s looked toward the burgeoning rock scene in L.A., a little-known band was forming its assault on the music industry in the back streets of San Francisco. More than 20 years since their rippin' debut album, Kill 'Em All, the boyz of Metallica have upped the ante for their rock brethren, crafting the heaviest of heavy metal, incessantly touring, notoriously attacking a little company called Napster, bringing a new level of sophistication to head-banging — and continually pushing themselves (and their fans) to redefine what is RAWK.
