Chain wallets. Leather boots. Badass biker-dude muscle shirts. Sleek sunglasses. Slick-back hair. Those facial hair chops. All black everything. Metallica's James Hetfield has many defining characteristics. But none compare to his nightmares-are-real-kiddies voice and, more specifically, the way he grunts the word "Yeah!"
Just think about all the Metallica songs that feature James grunting "Yeah!" in all its forms, short and terse or long howling. This dude knows his way around a badass "Yeahhhhhhhhh!!!"
So, thank god, a super fan made a highlight reel on SoundCloud collecting every one of James' "Yeah!"s, from Metallica's 1983 debut album Kill 'Em All through their last release, Death Magnetic. As a hardcore fan who has seen Metallica live many times, I must say: This is a work of genius. So, give me fuel, give me fire, give me that which I desire: "Yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!"
