It goes without saying that James Hetfield has one of the most recognizable voices in metal and the music industry as a whole. But after being around for 30+ years, people are going to start to notice certain motifs in your singing. For example, James Hetfield really does use the word “yeah” a lot. It’s a fact about him that you were probably always kind of aware of but never fully acknowledged. Fear no longer, for Kevin Conklin compiled a Soundcloud stream that features every James Hetfield “yeah” ever.
No, we’re not joking. Take three minutes of your time to take a retrospective journey through James Hetfield’s vocal journey from Kill ‘Em All to Beyond Magnetic. Yes, that means it includes St. Anger and Lulu, but it’s one of the funniest things you’ll hear all day hands down. Check it out on the Soundcloud stream below.
