Official Metallica Day

Lars Ulrich and Robert Trujillo joined San Francisco Mayor London Breed to celebrate the official proclamation of "Metallica Day," December 16, 2021. Lars said at the ceremony, "The reason we all wanted to be in a band was to fit into something greater than ourselves, and we absolutely did not fit into anything in Los Angeles...We felt like complete outsiders. When we came up here in September of 1982...we were embraced, we were taken in, and we felt so welcomed and so loved up here."
