"- We are Metallica, a small band from Norway. We would love to get a record contract", said James Hetfield , and the audience responded with huge laughter. (Yesterday Metallica had a secret performance in Texas for some 2000 fans).
Link to the original.

Hello? Well, must say my jaw dropped a notch when I read it over. Did not know if I should laugh, be affended or cry. *uh & haha*. Do Norwegians have a bad reputation or something...what's going on?

I think its just a joke! They picked Norway randomly I guess just to make a joke I don't think it has to do anything with bad reputation (which I haven't heard about) or anything...It could have been any other country in the joke I guess and it would pass the point...(which isn't that funny to me) smile.gif

Righto. A joke with a bad aftertaste. I probably would feel that way whichever country they picked. Hm...somehow James H seems to enoy me... I sort of have a Love & Hate relationship with Metallica ...

The last few years it's gone to a hate for me. I'm don't the rest of the band, but Lars is such a little wiener!

Just tell me that isn't put on, and that he doesn't mean this at all. You can hear it in his voice.

Maybe it wasn't a good "joke", but giving so much attention to it is in all measures inappropriate..

I actually liked the fact he said Norway, as James has often said he likes Norway smile.gif
I don't see what the fuzz is about at all, it was just a joke smile.gif

People will stop at nothing to hate Metallica won't they? It was a joke, I would have been psyched if he had mentioned Canada instead.

and to rapitap and sircraigery, I honestly doubt that James and Lars care what you think about them.

I think it was a joke too, so what was wrong if he said Norway or any other country? I don't think you can say that he thinks that all Norwegian bands are small and they cannot get a record deal because of what he said, can you? He wanted to make a joke that they are small band from Norway that need a record deal. He didn't compare or referred to any Norwegian band in any way.
