Metallica will be receiving the Polar Music Prize today (June 14), which is Sweden’s highest music honor. That considering, we thought we’d look back on another big honor the band earned in their remarkable career.
Aerosmith’s Rocks was released 42 years ago today (May 3), and in its own right, it’s a classic album, but it certainly had a lot to live up to considering it was released a little over a year after Toys in the Attic.
Metallica's Master Of Puppets may turn 32 years old today (March 3), but unlike some albums released in and around 1986, this one is nowhere near-dated or shows any signs of age whatsoever. In the three decades that have since passed, it still sounds as aggressive as it did upon release.
