Metallica gets Sirius!
Metallica is taking over the airwaves of Sirius XM Radio this Saturday, March 14th for a full month. To my fellow Sirius XM subscribers and fellow metal heads out there, this takeover will be on Sirius Channel 27, Liquid Metal, and turn into Mandatory Metallica until the 13th of April. (Yes, Liquid Metal will return to its full glory after the 30 day take over)
You’ll hear virtually every song from the Metallica catalog, including rare live cuts from the band’s personal archives and new songs from their latest platinum album, Death Magnetic.
Some of you may be thinking… “What the hell does this have to do with the gaming industry?” Well, according to an email I received from Sirius XM this morning (which most subscribers should have received), they stated the following…
The launch of the channel coincides with the release of “Guitar Hero: Metallica” on March 29, as well as the band’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on April 4.
(one of these days I’ll go to the Rock Hall… I stare at it every day out of my office window)
Is anyone looking forward to Guitar Hero: Metallica? If so, which Mighty Met song are you most excited to rock out to? (click here to refresh your memory on the track list…)
