Metallica and …philosophy? Why not? If Lady Gaga can get a college course dedicated to her, then why not a thought provoking book about one of the most popular and important metal bands of all time?

Metallica And Philosophy: A Crash Course In Brain Surgery takes 20 different Metallica songs and analyzes the lyrics through a series of  essays written by a variety of deep thinkers. Just what was going through James Hetfield’s head when he wrote the lyrics and what does it all mean? This book attempts to tie it all together. The madness, the mayhem, the inspiration behind some of the most influential music ever recorded.

And don’t forget to tune in to Mandatory Metallica every night at 10pm on 96.7 KCAL Rocks!
