Well, the day finally came.

Metallica's 72 Seasons finally landed and we celebrated all weekend long on The Ultimate Metallica Show. Instead of simply playing the album front to back, I decided to pull out some of my favorites that we hadn't heard yet and sprinkle in some killer old-school and live tracks, too. I also cracked open Cunning Stunts, a damn-near-perfect live recording that I've never actually played on the show before.

You can read my album review of 72 Seasons here, and if you missed the show, make sure to stream it at this location. Check out the show's full playlist below.

AI Generated Art: Metallica Edition

Using simple text prompts like "James Hetfield" or "Kirk Hammett Guitar," the robots have created some bizarre, and kind of cool, AI art. In the gallery below, you'll see the artificial intelligence creations; underneath each graphic is the text prompt that led to the art.

Some of Our Favorite Live Photos of Kirk Hammett

Kirk Hammett is a shredder, plain and simple. Or more specifically, he's a ripper. The Ripper.

Whether you're listening to him ripping or watching videos or staring at photos, one thing is obvious: this guy is a six-string master. While we could never create a collection that covers Hammett's entire history with Metallica, we've picked a handful of some of our favorite photos over the last 20 years showing the guitarist rocking out and having fun.
