The Simpsons Cameo

In 2005, James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett, and Robert Trujillo made cameo appearances on The Simpsons episode "The Mook, the Chef, the Wife, and Her Homer." In the script, Metallica hitches a ride with Hans Moleman and demands that super-fan Otto "never listen to our music again." ​
