Betallica


Sometimes when just browsing at random, you come across funny little things. Beatallica is one of those.
The band fuses sound and songs from The Beatles and Metallica catalogs. So far they have made two albums: A Garage Dayz Nite (2001) and Beatallica (2004).

The Beatles have The White Album and Metallica have The Black Album, naturally the otherwise nameless album Beatallica is better known as The Grey Album.

For legal reasons all their music is available for for free on their website.
When they in 2005 was sent a cease-and-desist note from Sony, which own a great deal of the legal rights to the Beatles music, the drummer and co-founder of Metallicam, Lars Ulrich (a fellow Dane), took action.
He promised to help with legal negotiations and to get Metallica's attorney calm things with Sony.
Sony did not pursue the matter any further.


My personal favorite is: Hey Dude.
