Watch Metallica’s Hall Of Fame Induction Videos

Thrash Metal legends Metallica were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame last night, performing onstage as a five piece band with ex-bassist Jason Newsted. Performances of “Enter Sandman” and “Master Of Puppets” can be viewed on our video page right HERE..

The band also performed a “surprise jam” with superstars Jeff Beck, Aerosmith’s Joe Perry, Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page and Red Hot Chilli Peppers’ Flea. Footage of the supergroup onstage at the ceremony can be viewed below.

Jason Newsted, along with the father of the late Cliff Burton were also included and inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame. Controversy has been raised over original member, Dave Mustaine’s absence from the ceremony, who apparently declined his invitation. A tearful Jason Newsted thanked the past and current members of Metallica for his inclusion, expressing his gratitude “for giving me the opportunity to share the experiences of these amazing bountiful decades“. He also described his time with the band as one “of Heavy Metal pioneership“, and how it allowed Metallica to “take our style of music to places it has never been before.”

Frontman James Hetfield described their inclusion as “living proof that it is possible to make a dream come true”, thanking ” all of Metallica, past and present“. The frontman/guitarist also said a special thanks to drummer Lars Ulrich for sharing what he described as “dreams of being in the greatest heavy metal band in the world.” 

Dedicating his inclusion to young musicians everywhere, Hetfield also said how he would like to see bands such as KISS, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Motorhead, Alice Cooper and Thin Lizzy to be the acts to enter the Hall next.

Guitarist Kirk Hammett thanked the band and fans for “their love and support“, describing his inclusion as “an honour“. He also said how excited he was “to continue to create inspired music”, joking that this was “only the band’s half way point in their career.”

All members thanked the fans who have supported them through all of the ups and downs throughout the band’s history, citing that “without you guys [the fans] this wouldn’t be possible!” 

You can watch the rest of the acceptance speeches in all their glory below. Watching this makes you realise just how fucking awesome Metallica are, James Hetfield has spoken- KISS, Iron Maiden, we can see 2010 Hall Of Fame with your names on it. If Wanda Fucking Jackson can get inducted then surely some of the biggest selling bands in the history can make it through…

Is there anyone who you think needs to make it to the 2010 ceremony?
