Formed in 1981, Metallica might be the most famous metal band in the world - even outside of their fan base, the band's name is legendary. Fans across the ages have moshed to classics like "Enter Sandman", "One" and "Ride the Lightning". The band has smashed boundaries and even created genres - their 1983 200bpm tour de force "Whiplash" is widely credited as signifying the birth of thrash metal.

No matter how you define it, there's no disputing that Metallica are one of the most successful bands of all time, topping 110 million record sales and always featuring in various "greatest artists" lists. Though the band have been through hardships such as their legal battle with file-sharing site Napster and the tragic loss of legendary bass player Cliff Burton in an on-tour road accident, they've always bounced back bigger and better than before. Metallica may occasionally have been in the headlines for other reasons, but it's their music that has to be credited with their appeal to generation after generation. Intense, frenzied, emotive and powerful, the band's music is uncompromising, each album embodying the Metallica mission statement: "To bang that head that doesn't bang."
