In October 1981, James saw an ad in a magazine posted by drummer Lars Ulrich and answered to it. Soon after, the award-winning band Metallica was formed. A few of Hetfield’s songs he wrote for the band were inspired by his unusual religious upbringing, including:

  • Dyers Eve;
  • The God That Failed.

During his recent interview, Hetfield said:

Right now, I’m sitting in the Petersen Museum, and I don’t know what’s gonna happen next. That’s the beauty of this. We’ll sit down and figure out what works best for us. Whatever is coming up, we don’t know. And we kind of thrive off of the fear of the unknown — a bit — and being scared just enough to feel alive.
