    Lars Ulrich went on Rachel Maddow’s show last night ostensibly to promote Guitar Hero: Metallica, but he ended up talking a lot about living in San Francisco and how Metallica songs were used to torture detainees in Iraq (he says he could name 30 bands that would make Metallica sound like Simon & Garfunkel). A sizable part of the interview is Maddow fawning over Metallica’s place in her youth (she reminds viewers over and over about how she listened to them as a teen) and she gives probably the most hyperbolic intro of any guest on cable news ever.
