The day has come…Metallica finally decided that their fans could buy their songs individually. Their albums have been available online, but they didn’t want to sell their songs individually. I’m not sure what prompted the change, but for me this was excellent news.
I haveÂ enjoyed listening to MetallicaÂ ever since high school and I had all of their albums. Through the years I’ve sold them for one reason or another and I didn’t want to go out and buy them again. Especially not with our financial situation right now. I just listened to the radio and hoped to catch one of their songs here and there.
But yesterday I saw the news, hopped onto iTunes and downloaded my 4 favorite Metallica songs, including the ever-so-awesome bass solo by Cliff Burton. I haven’t heard that in a long time and it was music to my ears.
Thank you Metallica for finally joining iTunes.
