Metallica is a Grammy Award-winning American heavy metal/thrash metal band formed in 1981 and has become one of the most commercially successful musical acts of recent decades. Metallica has sold more than 90 million records worldwide,including 57 million albums sold in the United States alone. Shortly after listening to Muse at Big Day Out, their album Death Magnetic came out. The Day That Never Comes (featured in the album) begins in a quite similar way to the song New Born from Muse. New Born was one of the songs Metallica heard while Muse was playing. The Big Day Out footage shows James and Kirk banging their heads to New Born.
