Metallica Strikes Back at Glastonbury Critics

Theo Wargo

Metallica has an excellent sense of humor when it comes to their critics.

Metallica was one of the headliners at last weekend's Glastonbury Festival in England, a booking that was criticized by British press and some rather uncharitable musicians. The band came up with a brilliant response to the backlash.

NME reports that the band sold limited edition "Glasstallica" T-shirts at the event, each emblazoned with some of the most negative comments. Some of the choicest ones include "Metallica: Whoopee F*cking Doo," "Metallica aren't in the spirit of peace-loving Glastonbury," and "Metallica — they're just shite!"

After 33 years as a band, it's delightful to know that Metallica's tongue is still firmly in cheek.
