Or not. I think it would sound great. The Man gave me a cock-eyed stare when I told him my idea.

my thoughts exactly. James Hetfield is great at songs like Enter Sandman and One (the metallica song One, not the U2 one ) but when I try to picture him singing the chorus of Pride, my brain shuts down.

Lu

PS I saw metallica live in 1995 and they rocked!

U2 and metallica are my favorite bands, and I think that James Hetfield would do pretty well singing pride, in a louder, heavier way. Of course, there is also a big chance of them screwing it up big time.

1. Metallica is poor at covers. (Remember Garage Inc.?)

2. U2 and Metallica are from total ends of the musical world. It just wouldn't fit together.

3. "Pride" could not be a metal tune. There's other U2 songs that could be, but definitely not that one.

So in the end, I voted for the fourth option.

Actually, I think U2 could do a better job with Metallica songs.

I voted for the fourth option as well, but I wouldn't say that they're bad at covers. I thought their version of Turn the Page was pretty fucking great!

Hmmmm...

The majority are against it. Most of you think I may have been indulging in a controlled substance. Perhaps I should rethink the whole thing...

I can't see JH singing the "In the name of love" part. It doesn't really seem to fit IMO...

Maybe Bullet The Blue Sky.

um... no. if someone's gonna do a good job with pride, they gotta have the pipes to do so. james just doesn't have the range. he's great at what he does, but i don't think there's too many u2 songs he could pull off, just like i couldn't hear bono giving enter sandman a go. bullet the blue sky would probably work for metallica... actually that might actually sound pretty damn cool. maybe acrobat, exit, darker stuff like that.

if you imagine metallica doing "bullet", then you realize what shitty band they actually are.

I think that's the worst idea ever. Metallica are okay, I just hate their whole attitude towards the Napster issue. Such babies they really are.

POD's cover of Bullet the Blue Sky is the best transformation of a U2 song into metal. Which makes sense, cause POD and U2 have a similar sound, technically speaking. If I get flamed for that statement, I'll explain more.
