A Festival for Metallica?

the idea of Metallica having its own festival sounds great to all their fans. that is until they hear who all is playing; Arctic Monkeys, Modest Mouse, Hot Snakes, Liturgy. who the fuck are these people? there is one solo metalish band on the list, Avenged Sevenfold. i don't hate Avenged Sevenfold, but unless there are other great artists playing the same show as them, i won't buy a ticket.all the other bands are hippster i won't even think about goin. when i heard the news that Metallica wanted to have a music festival i figured they'd ask people like, i don't know, Slayer or AC/DC to play, not The Gaslight Anthem. i guess Metallica is trying to reach a wider group of people...but now their excluding the people that got them famous to begin with. yes, they will make the money they want and probably be a pretty big success. but will the Metallica fans hate them, oh hells yes. sorry boys, but that shows gonna suck ass. next time why don't you call on your pals in Megadeth instead of the college kids' bands.
