was their precious Lollapalooza. How
could some testosterone-overloaded
metal band headline their festival?
In its sixth year as a showcase and
breeding ground for alternative bands
to get national exposure, Lollapalooza
took an unexpected turn to the musical
right. Instead of attempting to focus
on off-the-wall indie bands like it had
in the past, festival organizers (with-
out the help of festival originator.
Perry Farrell, who left the organiza-
tion after the '95 show) decided to
have their own Monsters of Rock con-
cert. With the bill comprised of
Metallica, Soundgarden, the Ramones
and Rancid, among others, the Gen-
Xers were stripped of their precious
alternative field day.
I don't think anyone rioted. You
know we are a generation of slackers,
right? But we hit 'em where it hurt -
their bank accounts. Ticket sales were

Lollapalooza held on this side of
Despite the fact the festival was
being headlined by old metalheads,
Metallica was surprisingly the best
headlining act at Lollapalooza in the
past few years.
Hands down, Metallica is a great live
band. They play tight, strong and loud.
But aside from Lars Ulrich's superb
drumming and James Hetfield's rich
growl lies something that few bands
ever master - a powerful stage per-
Loaded with charisma, charm and
arrogance, Metallica knows how to
entertain its audiences. After 15 years
of playing their 10-minute thrash-metal
epics, it's an impressive feat to keep
crowds awake and on their toes.
Last year's headliners, Sonic Youth,
may have been an indie rocker's wet
dream of Lollapalooza, but in no way
did the noise artists have the ability
to headline an outdoor festival of that
proportion. The previous year,
Smashing Pumpkins had the same
problem. Despite all his rage, Billy
Corgan was still just a wuss on the
stage. Crowd interaction was mini-
mal or non existent, and the band
members had their feet glued to the
