Metallica is an American Grammy Award-winning heavy metal band formed in 1981 from Los Angeles, California. Metallica consists the lineup of lead vocalist, rhythm guitarist and main songwriter James Hetfield who is also co-founder of the band along with the drummer Lars Ulrich, while Kirk Hammett is lead guitarist and Robert Trujillo is bassist.[1] Before this lineup Metallica consisted Ron McGovney as an original bassist from 1981 until he left the band in 1982 and then Cliff Burton joined the band as a bassist in 1982 and played until his death in 1986. After his death, Jason Newsted worked as a bassist from 1986 until his departure from Metallica in 2001 and he was replaced by Robert Trujillo in 2003. The other American heavy metal band Megadeth's front man Dave Mustaine, actually was the first lead guitarist and a co-songwriter of Metallica until he was fired from the band in 1983 and was replaced by present lead guitarist Kirk Hammett.

The band has released nine studio albums: Kill 'Em All (1983), Ride the Lightning (1984), Master of Puppets (1986), ...And Justice for All (1988), Metallica (1991), Load (1996), ReLoad (1997), St. Anger (2003), and Death Magnetic (2008). All of the albums were released by the now-dormant Elektra Records, except for the most recent album, released by Warner Bros. Records.[2] One of the most commercially successful heavy metal bands, Metallica has sold over 66 million albums in the United States.[3]

Metallica has received nine Grammy Awards; six were for the "Best Metal Performance" award in 1990, 1991, 1992, 1999, 2004, and 2009. The song "Enter Sandman" has been particularly successful for the band; it was nominated for "Best Rock Song" at the Grammy Awards, and it won the "Best Metal Video" award at the MTV Video Music Awards in 1992. The group has also received two awards from the MTV Video Music Awards: one for "Enter Sandman" and another for "Until it Sleeps". Metallica has been nominated for "Favorite Heavy Metal/Hard Rock Artist" four times at the American Music Awards, winning it twice, in 1993 and 1997.
