Remember back in 1998 when Metallica released “Garage, Inc.”? A double album that featured cover songs, B-side covers along with the band’s “$5.98 E.P.: Garage Days Re-Revisited”, which had gone out of print since its original release in 1987. Garage, Inc. was a fan favorite because Metallica did an incredible job covering so many classic rock, heavy metal and punk songs. Some fans would say the band’s covers sounded better than the original versions. Plus, the list of songs showed the many artists that have inspired Metallica over the years.
Drummer Lars Ulrich recently did an interview with Kerrang! which included fan-submitted questions. One Metallica fan asked if there would be a follow up to Garage, Inc. to which Lars replied “wait and see.” While the answer is very vague, one would hope maybe this is a sign something is brewing over at Metallica’s HQ. We can only wait and see. Would you want to see a part two for Garage, Inc.?
Garage, Inc. featured many hit songs for Metallica that are played on rock radio to this day.
