This past weekend's Ultimate Metallica Show was a lot of fun. I know, I know, I always say it, but I can't help it if it's true week in and week out.

And as you can see in the recap below, it's definitely true with our latest show.

We pulled out some killer live performances from a record store in California and an amphitheater in Texas; we played an unforgettable Soundgarden cover from the boys in tribute to Chris Cornell; and we even went a little country with Chris Stapleton's take on "Nothing Else Matters."

See what I mean? It really was fun.

Some of Our Favorite Live Photos of Lars Ulrich

As iconic as James Hetfield is, as much of a shredder as Kirk Hammett is and as crazy as Robert Trujillo is onstage, there might be no member more associated with Metallica than Lars Ulrich.

Afterall, he's the reason the band even exists. He's a major part of the songwriting process. He's the voice that stood up for Metallica and musicians across the globe in the wake of Napster.

After hours and hours of rifling through photos of Ulrich, we whittled this list down to just a few of our favorite live shots from the last 20 years. Of course, there's no way to encapsulate Ulrich in a mere photograph, but as you will no doubt be able to tell, you can get pretty close.
