Metallica is an American thrash metal band active from the 1981. After building a loyal following through its role in the development of thrash metal in the 1980s, Metallica successfully broadened its audience in the early 1990s.

In 1981, drummer Lars Ulrich makes guitar player/singer James Hetfield the offer for the 'Metallica' band foramation. These two recorded their first track on a cheap recorder with James performing singing duties, rhythm guitar duties and bass guitar duties.

Also Lars dutifully pounded the drums, helped with musical arrangements. Hetfield's friend and housemate Ron McGoveny was eventually talked into taking up bass and Dave Mustaine took lead guitar duties. They eventually recorded a full-fledged demo called 'No Life Til Leather'.

Then they circulated demo in the near by as well as abroad by Lars and his metal tape-trading buddies. 'No Life Til Leather' stirred up some interest in the underground metal community and the band started getting attention, specially in 'San Francisco' and 'New York'.

They went back to the garage. Metallica was and is very much a garage band. Whether it's in Kirk's basement, Jason's Chophouse, Lars' Dungeon or on stage in front of 50,000, Metallica always plays that song or that riff that helped them out somewhere along the road.

They had already released 2 garage albums and put out a smattering of cover songs as B-sides. In fact, the Garage Days albums had become so collectable and rare, but that poorly-recorded bootleg copies have been circulating for outrageous prices. The band chose 11 songs to record its third 'in the garage' album, again with Bob Rock.' The album was aptly-titled Garage Inc. as it incorporates All the previously-recorded garage cover songs along with the 11 tracks.
