Metallica

~ Release by Metallica (see all versions of this release, 49 available)

Annotation

This album's name is 'Metallica' nothing else, not 'The Black Album' not' 'Black', no buts, not nothing; it is a self-titled album with only the album name on the cover, it is redundant to put the band name twice thereon.
