The members of METALLICA have revealed that they were asked to send the lyrics to their entire discography to the Chinese government for approval before they were given permission to play in the country. “We had to give them a whole set of songs and they went through all the lyrics and okayed which ones we could play, which ones we couldn’t play,” METALLICA guitarist Kirk Hammett revealed during an appearance on “The Howard Stern Show” on Monday, September 23. “They see a lyric like ‘Master Of Puppets’ being so subversive that they’re not allowing us to play it. It’s kind of scary.” Added METALLICA frontman James Hetfield: “And that just brings more attention to it, of course. That doesn’t work.”

According to METALLICA, they never considered canceling their Chinese shows after being told which songs they couldn’t perform in the country.

“There were 40,000 kids over those two nights that were, I mean, they were really responding to what we were doing,” said METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich. “It was insane.”

“Whatever rules they set down, the fans were there to have fun,” stated Hetfield. “We got our foot in the door. We were able to go and play in China. That was the key.”

“What I did is, I had an open guitar solo thing where I just sit there and riff,” said Hammett. “I played the riff for ‘Master Of Puppets’ and a couple of other songs that weren’t allowed to be played. I played just the music, so I kind of snuck it in there.”

Ulrich also explained that METALLICA‘s Chinese fans were fully aware of the restrictions that were placed upon the band during their appearance in the country. “What we’re talking about here is not a secret. They published it on government web sites — what songs we could play and what we couldn’t. I mean, it’s fine.”

METALLICA played for the first time ever in China last month, doing two sold-out shows at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai on August 13 and August 14. The first night sold out in record time and faster than any other Western act that has played the country before.

Official video recaps of the two concerts can be seen below.

METALLICA sit down for an interview and perform on Comedy Central‘s “The Colbert Report” on Tuesday, September 24. Check your local listings and providers for show times.

As previously reported, METALLICA will guest on “The Howard Stern Show” on SiriusXM satellite radio on Monday, September 23.

Back in July, Gary Dell’Abate, the executive producer of “The Howard Stern Show”, revealed that METALLICA would take part in an interview and perform two of its “classic” songs on the program.

METALLICA is rumored to be preparing a surprise performance at Yankee Stadium in New York to honor retiring Yankees pitcher Mariano Rivera. The New York Daily News noted last month that METALLICA will be in town to perform at the Apollo Theater on September 21, one day before the Yankees stage a celebration of Rivera‘s career on September 22 prior to their game against the San Francisco Giants — who happen to be METALLICA‘s hometown team.

And why would METALLICA pay tribute to the legendary Rivera, who’s calling it quits after nearly 20 years with the Yanks? Because for most of those years, the future Baseball Hall Of Famer has been coming out of the bullpen to close out games to the tune of METALLICA‘s “Enter Sandman” playing on the stadium’s P.A. system.

According to The Pulse Of Radio, the Daily News contacted Yankees reps about the matter, but a team spokesperson would not comment on “any events surrounding Mo‘s ceremony.”

METALLICA performed at Yankee Stadium once before, nearly two years ago in September 2011 when the “Big Four” tour with SLAYER, ANTHRAX and MEGADETH stopped there.

METALLICA is playing at the Apollo to promote the release of its new movie, “Metallica Through The Never”.

The 3D IMAX film made its world premiere on September 9 at the Toronto International Film Festival before opening on September 27 at IMAX theaters and expanding onto additional screens on October 4.
