classick: G N' R vs. Metallica

"That Didn't Happen"

Big thanks to Arthur Fischer-Zernin for sending this our way.

In one of the greatest bits of Behind the Music history, Metallica Lars Ulrich and Kirk Hammett tag team in one of the most unintentionally funny moments in the history of rock and roll. Metallica and Guns N' Roses were playing a co-headline show in Montreal, when James Hetfield was severely burned by a "twelve foot high, 3,200 degree tower of flame." The commentary from lead Metallica mouth Lars Ulrich is guaranteed to make you giggle, especially if you love Napster and think Axl is a douche.

At 3:05 in:
Lars: Guns N Roses could've come out and saved the day by going on and playing a three hour blistering set.
Kirk: That didn't happen.
