So I looked this up. Downloading the Guitar Hero pack for the album off of Xbox Live comes to about $18. The album is $10. Still cheaper than the "on sale" price for the combo, let alone the regular price. How dumb do they think people are?

Dude, just go to thepiratebay.org and search for Death Magnetic Guitar Hero and you'll find the torrent right there! It downloaded for me in no time!

I'm sure there are plenty of Metallica fan jokes to be made at this juncture...

That's not all that horrible of a deal then. Albums on Rock Band are, what, $10? It's overpriced, but maybe $15 for the package would be fair.

Agreed, but the CD+Guitar Hero album is $30 on sale, regularly $40.

Rip Off Metallic

Tower doesn't have retail stores in the US any more (and never did where I live) and the price is already $13 on their website.

None of that changes the fact that $30/$40 is an absolutely terrible price for that sort of combo.

I know. It is only for the math-impaired. Most of these box-sets/combos are crappy deals. The Led Zeppelin one with the crappy t-shirt, the U2 remastered set, etc. The only decent one I've seen was the Joshua Tree one, I thought that was good value.

As for DM, 9.99 is still a pretty good buy for a new CD

METALLICA's LARS ULRICH Wants To Share Stage With U2

Interesting double bill it would be ......
METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich has told the UK's Daily Star newspaper that his one remaining ambition is for the band to perform on the same bill as U2.

Despite appearing alongside some of the biggest names in music —including DEEP PURPLE, THE ROLLING STONES, IRON MAIDEN and AC/DC — METALLICA has yet to share the stage with the Irish band.

"I'll play at one in the afternoon, in a parking lot in Ireland, I don't give a shit. As long as I can do that," he told the Daily Star.

Ulrich also spoke about the buzz aurrounding the band's new album 'Death Magnetic", which topped the U.S. chart afer selling a half million copies in the first three days alone.

"A lot of crazy and fun things are happening one after the other in our lives right now," he said. "Whenever METALLICA does anything, even when we get out of bed in the morning, something seems to happen in the wake of it. But it seems people are responding well to the new album. It's our most positively received album since probably 1991's Black album. It's a good time to be in METALLICA and it's still a buzz.

I agree, I'm just complaining as generally you at least save a few bucks for doing the "combo".

Complain U2popmofoic
