    Episode 59 - Garage Inc. (Disc 1)

    Garage, Inc. is possibly the finest covers album to grace our ears! We love that the boys not only included covers they had done in the past, but also went into the studio with Bob Rock to record an entirely new collection of songs. Completed in only two weeks after the Poor Retouring Me tour, this is Metallica at one of their undisputed peaks. From classics like Die, Die My Darling and It's Electric to newer jams like Nick Caves' Loverman, we can't get enough of Garage, Inc!

    Episode 58 - Pushead (Brian Schroeder)

    If you own any Metallica merchandise chances are you own a Pushead design. From shirts like Harvester Of "Sorrow," "Damage Inc.," "Sad But True," and "Fixxxer," to home video releases like Cliff Em All and A Year And A Half all the way to the album artwork and logo for St. Anger, Pushead has designed more for Metallica than any other. The list is enormous and continues to grow today. He helped make an iconic brand for Metallica and his designs stand the test of time. Learn more about Pushead in this episode from his childhood in California and the midwest through his work with Thrasher Magazine, Septic Death, The Misfits, and of course, the mighty Metallica.

    Episode 57 - Anniversary Party Recap

    First off, thank you to everyone who has supported this podcast through our first year! To celebrate, we threw a "Metallica Night" at one of our local bars here in Nashville, called The Cobra. We packed out the place with friends, new listeners, OG listeners and even had some folks play Metallica trivia and name that riff on stage. This episode is a run down of a lot of stuff that happened that night, with segments of trivia and name that riff. For those that wanted to come, we hope this makes you feel like you were there. Here's to another year!
