METALLICA Yet To Select RAMONES Cover For Tribute CD

June 3, 2002

Despite rumors to the contrary, METALLICA have yet to select a song to cover for the upcoming RAMONES tribute album, entitled either Ramones Forever or We're A Happy Family (depending on the source). Here is an update on the situation, as posted earlier today via METALLICA's official web site at

"METALLICA is in the studio working on their new record, and as rumored on other sites, it's true that they are also working on a track to contribute to the upcoming RAMONES tribute record. When Kirk was asked by his friend Johnnny Ramone if the band would do a song, the 'yes' part of the answer was easy. Now comes the hard part — picking a song! They guys have jammed on eight songs, narrowed it down to four, but still haven't made the final decision yet. No, they won't tell us what the front runners are - we'll just have to get back to you after they pick one."

Both and METALLICA's Fan Club web site,, have included a new image of the band (with Bob Rock) recording "gang" vocals. has another four new pictures taken on May 22nd during the recording sesions for the upcoming album — featuring Bob Rock on bass, the documentary crew hard at work, and James Hetfield sporting the glasses he wore at the MTV AEROSMITHIcon program.
