    Metallica supplied "Fuel" for the Oakland Raiders' playoff victory over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, playing a surprise show in the parking lot of Oakland's Network Associates Coliseum.

    The band pulled up on flatbed truck around noon and performed an ear-blasting six-song set in front of a sign bearing a handwritten Metallica logo, a drawing of a skull and crossbones, and an American flag. Frontman James Hetfield, wearing running back John Ritchie's #40 Raiders jersey, greeted the crowd and shouted, "We're gonna get inside and let the Titans know who's boss! Are you ready?"

    Metallica, who were invited by the Raiders, began their set with "Fuel," from 1997's Reload, before digging deeper into their catalog. Guitarist Kirk Hammett, wearing wide receiver Jerry Rice's #80 jersey, punctuated Hetfield's stoic riffs with complimentary phrases and fleet-fingered solos.

    In what could have been the day's theme song, the band barreled through "Seek & Destroy," from 1983's Kill 'Em All. Two songs were culled from 1986's Master of Puppets — the title track and "Battery" — and "For Whom the Bell Tolls" filled the obligation to 1984's Ride the Lightning. The only cut from Metallica's most popular album, 1991's Metallica, was "Sad But True."

    Metallica were joined on bass by Bob Rock, who is producing the band's next album, due in June. Rock has been playing bass with them in the studio, too, but both he and Metallica have said he will not join full-time. The band has auditioned several players to replace Jason Newsted, but so far they have not announced a decision.

    "Thank you friends, we had a f---in' blast out there," Hetfield said as the final cymbal rolls of "Battery" echoed through the parking lot. "Enjoy the game, man. Kick ass, Raiders."

    And they did.

    I guess new bandmember Ja Rule didn't make the gig? Why, because he's "East Coast" representin'???

    Or because he's afraid Hammett might try and tickle his ball sack?

    The question is not, "Does love exist?"
    But when she leaves, where she goes?
    I got the feelin' she don't know either
    Wait like the wind, watch where she blows

    Who the hell played bass for them?? Let me guess, Bob Rock?? Boy was he the end of Metallica as a METAL band or what? Well, Actually, they are all responsible. Yee haw yall. I have never seen such a dynamic and powerful metal band go to such waste. Metallica is now somewhere between rock and country. Who knew??
    Van Halen without the original 4 is just not Van Halen.

    Yeah he had another gig:

    "Yahoo’s Launch reports that fans greeted Ja Rule and Ashanti with boos when they took the stage for a half-time performance of Ja Rule’s latest single “Mesmerize” at the NFC Championship game at Veterans Stadium in Philadelphia on Sunday."

    Too bad Metallica couldn't pump up the Raiders.

    And btw, Elwood, Lars has needed to hit the gym since before Metallica was formed. He's always been a scrawny little pencil-neck.
