five consecutive albums at number one on the Billboard 200
In the Eighties — when big hair and small ideas dominated heavy metal — Metallica’s blend of brains and brawn gave the genre a much-needed charge. The band’s lyrics addressed issues metal didn’t typically address, sharpening their relevance to people’s lives. Metallica went on to become the biggest-selling rock act of the Nineties and have released a grand total of nine studio albums, four live albums, five extended plays, 25 music videos, and 37 singles.
Metallica have racked up nine Grammy awards, and have had five consecutive albums at number one on the Billboard 200. Metallica ranks as one of the most commercially successful bands of all time. They have sold over 110 million records worldwide and currently stand as the fourth best-selling music artist since the SoundScan era.
