Not only is Metallica the biggest Metal band of all time, there’s a legit argument to be made that they’re the biggest band across all music period!  At least at one time, they were the biggest band on the planet.  They’re not shy at all about sharing and turning their fans onto their roots.  Heck, they put out a double CD of nothing but covers in the 90s (part of which originated as a cassette in the 80s).  But is their biggest song ever possibly stolen?  Listen to Roots and decide for yourself!
