This band’s backstage bacon request is totally over the top


Written by:

Do you love bacon? How much? A lot? A lot a lot?

Well, even if you do, you probably don’t love bacon as much as the band members of Metallica do.

How do I know?

Because the guys in Metallica live on an an endless river of bacon. It flows forth at every show.

The following message appeared three times, in all caps, in a concert rider for Metallica:


That’s some bacon dedication right there. 

But we all know bacon is the metal of meats. Chicken is country, steak is classy, pork is what’s for dinner. But bacon? 

Yeah, bacon IS metal

It can kill you. Is there anything more metal than an absolutely delicious food people constantly crave but are not allowed to eat their fill of without threat of serious health consequences? There is not. 

Only the most metal among us has the fortitude and the absolute “live fast die young” world view to consume bacon freely. 

Yes, my friends, it seems endless bacon exists only in the realm of The Rock Gods. 

Here. Have some metal on me while I eat some bacon.
