That <i>specific order</i>? Oh, then that's okay.

Please tell me this is a joke. Metallica is claiming rights to the chord sequence E, F. Says Lars Ulrich:

We're not saying we own those two chords, individually - that would be ridiculous. We're just saying that in that specific order, people have grown to associate E, F with our music."

We're also coming to associate complete idocy. Keep it up.

Update: Probably a hoax. My bad. See the comments.


  1. Disclaimer: I'm a diehard Metallica fan. \m/
    Anyways, this looks pretty hoax-like. The links to MTV and Metallica's web site are hosted by, which doesn't look very reputable. And based on owning nearly all of their albums, I've never noticed any particular repeated chord sequence through their songs, let alone one that is based on E and F.
    If this isn't a hoax, well I guess I'll have to burn some albums as well as a ticket for one of their shows in three weeks..

  2. D'oh. I'm sure you're right; I noticed the logo on the page but didn't pay attention to the url. (I usually do. I dropped the ball.)
