Metallica were formed in 1981 by James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich. They met after Lars posted an ad searching for people to jam with. The American band also consists of Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo. Metallica is known as one of the “big four” bands of thrash metal, and one of the most influential bands in the metal genre. Fun fact: scenes from the movie Johnny Got His Gun were used in the videoclip of Metallica’s ‘One’. As a result, the movie’s popularity expanded, making it a cult antiwar movie. Additionally, the lyrics of the song follow the thoughts of the movie’s protagonist Johnny, a soldier who lost his sight, hearing and speech, and was paralyzed in the war.
