Metallica Monday

Metallica_3 The Monday blues struck a certain chord with the folk on the square mile, but a stone’s throw away from the O2 Arena in London.

If every free sheet, tabloid and broadsheet strewn across the tube was to be believed, it was Meltdown Monday, the day when banks burned, hedge funds shrivelled, grown men cried and we all ate our arms and blamed Labour for the world’s current economic pickle.

In other news, Metallica put on a two hour fan club show for 20,000 people at £5 a pop to celebrate the release of their ninth LP Death Magnetic.

If that wasn’t reason enough to cheer up in this climate, we really don’t know what could. We are positively still quite deaf from the experience, so here’s the rather gratifying set list:

That Was Just Your Life

The End Of The Line

The Thing That Should Not Be

Of Wolf And Man


Broken, Beat & Scarred



Until It Sleeps

Wherever I May Roam

For Whom The Bell Tolls

The Day That Never Comes

Master Of Puppets


Jump In The Fire

Seek & Destroy

If only all Mondays were made like this…
