100 Years of Mötley Crüe, Ellefson Says Metallica’s #1, and More Top Stories of the Week


A lot of shit happened this week in the metal world, from Dave Mustaine admitting he was apparently pressured into bringing Dave Ellefson back into the band in 2010 to Chris Barnes reminding everyone that he thinks new death metal sucks and only the old shit matters.
