Metallica Hearts the Black Keys


1 comment

Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammet named the Black Keys' Magic Potion as his No. 12 favorite album of the decade in a list for Rolling Stone.

The Keys' "You're the One" (track three from the same 2006 album, produced by Danger Mouse; clip is above) is his No. 24 favorite song of the 00's, right after a rap-rock double-shot of Korn's "Here to Stay" and Kid Rock's "American Badass."

Wait till he hears BlakRoc. —D.X. Ferris
