Cheap Tunes Tuesday: Metallica—Load

Perhaps realizing the potentially polarizing nature of their sound, Metallica began to reinvent their music, experimenting a bit with other elements like southern rock, blues and country. It certainly alienated some of the band’s loyalists, but brought in a whole new audience not only to the new stuff, but the old as well.

Generally, if you are able to stick it out that long and you’re relatively good at what you do, some recognition will come your way.

Cheap Tunes Tuesday: The Black Keys

Often times you hear new music on the radio and it all just sort of blends together. That is the furthest thing from the truth with The Keys.
