James Hetfield vs. Al Jourgensen – President of Heavy Metal Election, Round 1
Metallica frontman James Hetfield is arguably the President of the ‘Big 4′ of thrash, but does he deserve to be the President of Heavy Metal? Hetfield has some pretty incredible statistics on his side, having sold over 100 million albums worldwide in the 30-plus years he’s stood center-stage with Metallica.
For those of you who crave a little more chaos in your candidate for the President of Heavy Metal, eccentric Ministry frontman Al Jourgensen has entered the race. The industrial-metal pioneer may have nearly killed himself from years of heavy drug use that would have long put Keith Richards in the grave, but there are no rules against running on a platform covered in blood and puke.
