James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich formed together in L.A. in the early 1980's. Both from backgrounds of anything but heavy metal, the two found a common interest in the sound and decided to add in Dave Mustaine and Ron McGovney to start a band. Within a year, Clifford Lee Burton replaced McGovney and then following that replacement, came Kirk Hammett to take over Mustaine's guitar role.
The band came to a solid group and formed a loyal following. Metallica was known for their lyrics and sounds that reflected anger, death, fear and other mixed emotions of teenagers. The band had songs of war, hate, crime, politics and more. Most groups and artists of the time didn't dive into such complex and complicated subjects, yet Metallica didn't care to try and stay within the lines.
Unfortunately, the group went through personal heartbreak as Burton was killed in a bus accident while on tour. Jason Newsted came in to replace him as lead bassist. Although there was pain and sorrow, Newsted brought a new sound to the group and Metallica grew in success even more so by the Nineties.
