Since they formed in 1981, San Francisco Bay Area band Metallica have gone from an underground heavy metal band to one of the most successful acts in the world, with an intensely loyal fan base.

In addition, a live box-set release (containing over eight hours of live music and video), retailing at over $80, has sold over 1 million units worldwide, making it the biggest selling box-set of its kind in history.
Metallica have garnered numerous awards and accolades throughout the world over their career, including 9 Grammy Awards, 2 American Music Awards, 2 MTV Video Music Awards, a VH-1 Award, the ESPN Action Sports and Music Artist Contribution Award for 2001, over 30 California Music Awards, the 2004 NARAS San Francisco Governor’s Award, the MTV: ICON award of 2003 and most recently, the ASCAP Creative Voice award for 2004.
