Metallica, one of the greatest metal legends of all time, faces problems of a modern era. New fans of the band from Stranger Things Season 4 have brought the band to the forefront, but at what cost? A Tiktok content creator recently released several videos detailing why she believes they should cancel the legendary metal band.
In the Tiktok video, the Creator makes allegations claiming the band has had a sketchy past. However, fans of the band have come out to defend it, stating that people change quickly and that they have done more good than they have ever done bad. The Creator used allegations from Axl Rose, lead singer of Guns N’ Roses, but fans did not have it, stating that Axl Rose has done way worse.
Metallica hasn’t responded to the TikTok creator but has welcomed new fans from the rise in popularity. After the 4th season aired, they made a statement: “FYI—EVERYONE is welcome in the Metallica Family. Whether you’ve been a fan for 40 hours or 40 years, we all share a bond through music. All of you started at ground zero at one point in time.” [Source Newsweek]
