  • “We know certain groups out there figure, 'These are the current trends-how do we milk the market for the most we can get at the moment?' I think the music business nowadays is becoming such a fake thing; there's much more emphasis on business than music.”

    -Lars Ulrich
  • “We make albums like Garage Inc. because they're fun to do. Doing covers has always been a great way for us to break away from our normal recording process. It allows a much looser approach, and it's always fun taking other peoples's songs and adding our own spin to them”

    -Lars Ulrich
  • “We just wanna take it easy. That's what we're doing post-jason and after what James has been through. Right now, there's a sense of rebirth. It's not forced. It's just so fucking natural.”

    -Lars Ulrich
  • “Hell, I don't even know what making it means to me, and we hopefully have another 10 or 15 years left with bigger records and better shows...”

    -Lars Ulrich
  • “All through the '50's my dad had a jazz club in Denmark, and he had a band together, a fun thing like Metallica. He used to play all the time and then play tennis for real income.”

    -Lars Ulrich
  • “We wrote 27 songs for Load and were developing it as a double album. As far as I'm concerned, you can take any of these songs and interchange them on the 2 albums. The only fear we had was getting to it quick. We didn't want to leave it lying around for 3 years and worry about what it would sound like when we came back to it. ”

    -Lars Ulrich
  • “Things are so deep and people are always trying to read shit into things that are really simple. Some people tell you what the songs are about and it bores me to death.”

    -Lars Ulrich
  • “We have always and will always continue to condone allowing people to record our concerts, and to freely trade live concerts.”

    -Lars Ulrich
  • “There's always the odd letter or comment like, if you don't play ten Metal Milita's on every album it'S not Metallica and it's not good.”

    -Lars Ulrich
  • “On this last album, even though the drums are really up front, there are not many drum fills. I got bored playing them. I came to the conclusion that I don't have any more exciting drum fills to play, so I'd rather not play any at all. So I go through these cycles and different priorities. (on St. Anger)”

    -Lars Ulrich
  • “It's like saying all Ex-Football players are potential serial killers. It's these setereotypes you get stuck with.”

    -Lars Ulrich
  • “We're no different from the fans. We see the world like other people. We don't live in mansions, and we're not hiding behind fences and making our own pretentious fantasy world with chicks and mountains of drugs. We live in the real world, and the real world's an ugly place (1988)”

    -Lars Ulrich
  • “Isn't that the whole integrity of this fuckin band to do different shit? We've always tried to avoid following what everyone else is doing. It's a challenge to come up with things that are original. It's not easy, but that's part of the fun”

    -Lars Ulrich
  • “Most of the time, it's like a bad dream, like what the fuck was that? Three years later, it's like did that really happen? We went from being somewhat well-respected, well-liked, and then I woke up one day and all of a sudden I was the most hated man in Rock N Roll. (on Napster)”

    -Lars Ulrich
  • “I'd like to thank all the radio stations and MTV, without whom... all this was possible anyway.”

    -Lars Ulrich
  • “To go from one extreme to the other, with no boundaries. That's the best. That's what Metallica is all about.”

    -Lars Ulrich
  • “Doing things you see it, going by your own heart and soul, that is pure artistic integrity. Whatever the hair is 6 or 60 inches long, the eyes have make-up or not, the riffs are in E or F sharp, all those things dont matter if you are doing it for the right reason, which to me means doing it for yourself.”

    -Lars Ulrich
  • “People can interpret the lyrics any way they want, and we're always careful to say in interviews that we're not trying to tell anybody what to think or how to feel about any particular subject. If there is one thing that we're trying to say, it's 'Be independent, don't listen to anyone - don't listen to US.”

    -Lars Ulrich
  • “So much of a Metallica Gig is being there and feeling the kick drum in your stomach. We want to make sure that can be transferred to a TV Screen.”

    -Lars Ulrich
  • “The day Metallica's over, I'm not going to put an ad looking for another band. I'll put my drumsticks on the shelfand there's 14 other things I wanna try. Metallica's the only band I've ever been and it's the only I wanna be in”

    -Lars Ulrich
  • “We formed this band when we were 18-19, we couldn't play... we were just like "let's get together and play some cover songs, drink some vodka"... a year and a half later we were touring the world, releasing records...”

    -Lars Ulrich
  • “We've always known that there's been a need or a want for a band like us. We've fought back and broke through all the bullshit of the business, and now it's great to be able to say fuck off to the whole business, and we did it our way and blah blah. We've always had our own way of doing things.”

    -Lars Ulrich
  • “Everything we've done has always been on our own terms - I know, you read these magazines and every band says, 'We never compromise,' but in our case, it's true.”

    -Lars Ulrich
  • “We went into the studio with the intent of making a real lively record that bounces off the walls. It should have gone quicker, in theory, than trying to get everything note perfect like we have before. But as usual with Metallica, all those theories and normalities go straight out the window. (about the Black Album)”

    -Lars Ulrich
