    i've seen 2 scenes from 2 different shows that bag on metallica.

    now being a fan of metal and especially metallica, i took it as they are trying to spread some sort of hate from the yuppie types they are, towards metal heads and/or metallica. it wasn't jerry that made the comment, but it is his show.

    Metallica was mentioned twice throughout the series:

    From The Opera:
    GEORGE: Did you see that? The guy's walking away. What is wrong with you? That was a three hundred dollar profit.
    KRAMER: Look, I know what I¹m doing here George.
    GEORGE: This is not a Metallica concert, it's an opera alright, a little dignity, a littlecla$$ just give me my ticket, I will stand over here and sell it.
    KRAMER: Oh, yeah.

    ...and from The Lip Reader:
    Driver: I'm so sorry, you'll have to forgive me. I can't hear a damn thing. I went to that rock concert last night at the garden. My seats were right up agains the speaker. It's a heavy metal group. Metalla-something.
    Kramer: -ca.
    Driver: Huh?
    George: What?
    Jerry: -ca.
    George: ah.

    I don't think I see anything against Metallica with these bits.

    it wasn't just what was said, it was how it was said. then again if you don't like metallica then you won't see what i mean.

    Actually, I am a fan of Metallica. I just don't remember it sounding like they were against them.

    I don't think these are necessarily anti-Metallica comments.

    IMO, Metal is just dumb people with half their braincells left from screaming all the time, and the people who listen to it with their speakers up probably have the same level of intelligence.

    Metal = No cla$$, I agree with the script.

    Wow, stereotype much? I guess those who listen to rap are thugs, opera - snooty, rich people and country - hicks?

    haha....metallica is one of the most influential bands in our lifetime and they clearly have talent. although i'm not a huge fan of metallica or metal in general, metal is definitly not for people withoutclas$ and certainly not dumb people. that stereotype isn't even valid, i've never heard it in my life. it's like me saying that if you listen to rap, you eat babies or if you listen to cla$$ical, you molest babies. your opinion sucks.

    I know this topic hasn't been posted in for over a year, almost 2. But I just had to say how much you are way off here. The only one with no cla$$ here is you. Insulting a group of people based on their musical preference. We all have music that speaks to us. Music that makes us feel. Who are you to say that we're wrong? That we're stupid? To make a comment like the one you made tells me you have no idea what you're talking about. Speaking on behalf of Metallica fans like myself. We're not stupid. Do you realize what an idiotic comment that is to make? It's really baffling.

    You'll probably never read this, you'll most likely continue believing you're better than everyone else and special. Or maybe you'll stop and think about what you're saying instead of making stupid and ignorant comments.

    Peace.

    Oh, and to the OP. I agree with the majority. They didn't seems to be ripping on the band at all. Hell, I'm thrilled whenever their mentioned. I thought it was great.

    Haha, what the hell OP?

    You are putting 2 and 2 together and coming up with 8. Just because they are not openly praising Metallica does not mean they hate them. In both quotes Metallica are only a vehicle for a joke, the second one based on phonetics for crying out loud.

    This does indeed seem like reading too much into the script. Also, metalheads are of the best and coolest people I've ever encountered
