In an interview with Alfa 91.3 FM, Trujillo stated he’d be into both Slayer or Cheech & Chong taking up one in every of Metallica‘s newer tracks. Which looks like a bizarre selection given Metallica‘s basic melodic leanings and Slayer‘s wilder strategy to melody. Appears like possibly Anthrax would’ve been a better option from the Large 4, proper? As for the Cheech & Chong decide, positive – why not?
“Wow. That is query, ‘trigger it may very well be actually humorous and I might inform you that I might select… Are you accustomed to Cheech & Chong? Cheech & Chong had been a comedy staff. And I have been saying this within the press. They’d an unbelievable tune known as ‘Earache My Eye’ within the ’70s… They usually had a horn part and every thing. ‘If Darkness Had A Son’ is a tune that I have been saying I can hear Cheech & Chong [singing], ‘Temptation’.
“And Cheech & Chong, they’d one man… They had been, like, what we name stoners. In order that they had been all the time very excessive, like, ‘Yeah, man. Cool, dude.’ And one in every of them was what we are saying Chicano; he was Mexican-American. That will have been Cheech Marin. Cheech Marin is his identify. So I all the time think about him going, [singing] ‘Temptation’, like that.”
“However other than that… That will be the humorous facet. I might say… Let’s examine… What can be a very highly effective tune? I imply, I might love to listen to [the] 72 Seasons [title track]… That is gonna sound loopy. What if ’72 Seasons’ was coated by Slayer? That will be fairly cool. [Laughs] Nobody would anticipate that. However I might adore it. ‘Trigger I all the time really feel like… Some folks say there is a competitors [between Metallica and Slayer]… And possibly it is as a result of I got here into the band later. I view it as extra as two signature kind of icon powerhouses that had this vitality again within the early ’80s actually robust. However what if, what if the traditional Slayer coated a tune like ’72 Seasons’? That will be fairly cool.”
