METALLICA: Best Dressed Chicken In Town?

August 24, 2002

METALLICA's official web site,, released a new 15-minute video (dated August 13th & 15th) which includes footage from frontman James Hetfield's birthday surprise on August 6th and features several newsworthy tidbits, including the tongue-in-cheek possible album titles of Floods of Vomit, Surfing the Zeitgeist, Butchered, Sarcasm with Meaning, Not/Ain't Askared No More, Old, Ugly, Nasty, and Best Dressed Chicken In Town, plus additional information on the two new songs the band has written so far. Also included is exclusive video footage of the sleep-deprived producer Bob Rock and former ALICE IN CHAINS bassist Mike Inez.

On the serious side, the band has revealed that they have over 20 song 'ideas' with only a few going past the "first stage" of writing, some video of lyric writing process, including Lars' inclusion of the word "fuck." The band have gone as far as releasing several clips of new material, including the "gang vocal" recording in the track "Look At Myself".
