Metallica ready for the Rock Hall

James Hetfield of Metallica is well aware of his band's eligibility for the Rock Hall this year.
Something exciting that's up for us is being eligible for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in America, which is a pretty big deal. We played it last year for BLACK SABBATH, who chose not to perform, and we said we would. [Laughs] That was a lot of fun. You know, it's this historic landmark. A lot of bands get inducted, [but] not many bands are there to play all together to say 'Hi' and 'Thank you.' If you made it to 25 years, you either hate each other or you're broken up or you didn't make it that far, or something. So we're pretty proud. There's a not a whole lot of bands that can say that, so we're very grateful.
Future Rock Hall currently predicts that Metallica has a 90% chance for induction, so it's very likely Metallica will be on stage for the 2008 Induction Ceremony.
