According to Rollingstone.com, Linkin Park will be performing a Metallica cover at the MTV tribute concert/ceremony honouring the metal legends which is going to air next Tuesday, May 6th, at 9ET on MTV.

....Metallica, who are breaking in new bassist Robert Trujillo, will be honored at an mtvICON tribute in Los Angeles, with their songs covered by Aerosmith, Linkin Park, Blink-182, Limp Bizkit, Korn, Avril Lavigne and others. The event will air on May 6th....

Please note that Chester was originally going to be presenting, which is still believed to happen. Rolling Stone may have messed up the fact that Linkin Park will be attending. But considering the respectability of RS, this could more than likely be true.

We still got to get Avril Lavigne off of performing, unless she performs like I Disappear or something new and dull, then we&#39;re fine. If she does like some old Metallica classic, i swear on my life. i&#39;m going down to MTV studios and burning down that mother####r

on every mtvICON, only the songs of those who are being honoured are played by the performers.

MTV ahven&#39;t announced LP will be performing yet, I&#39;m starting to think RS was misconstrued.

Ohmygod. -.-

I hopehopehope this is true; Rolling Stone better not be getting my hopes up for nothing.

But yeah, I agree with Mark; Rolling Stone probably did get something mixed up. LP would&#39;ve had to rehearse and seeing how they&#39;re doing P:R, I can&#39;t imagine how they&#39;d fit it into their schedule..

If LP did perform, they would kick all of the other performers&#39; asses for sure (aside from Metallica, of course).

That would be so cool if they did perform which I doubt it though because I don&#39;t think Brad/Mike are good enough play lots of Metallica songs (solos in particular). Plus Joe wouldn&#39;t really do anything.

I&#39;m a huge Metallica fan, and I&#39;d be interested to see how it would turn out. What do you guys think of this? Discuss.

Actually Brad can do Metallica-style stuff, he just chooses not to. He thinks solos are stupid and considered the "fat" of songs.(like fat on meat)

Joe&#39;s actually a good guitar player. Him and Brad switched places in Toluca. (Yes, meaning Brad on turntables :lol:) Joe will probably play guitar for the performance, with Brad on lead guitar and Mike and Joe on backup guitars(or whatever you wanna call it).

Just because they&#39;ve never done solos on record doesn&#39;t mean they arent experienced in it. Brad played Guns and Roses&#39; Sweet Child Of Mine at LP concerts, and Metallica and GNR are in the same type of music in a way, so...if Brad can play Guns why not Metallica?

Don&#39;t doubt LP till you see what they can do ;).

Tori I merged your topic into this one. ;)

That&#39;s why Brad wears headphones. He loves turntables, and the headphones show that. Like Joe being good with guitar, Brad&#39;s good with turntables even though he never uses them.

Come on, it&#39;s Linkin Park. Anything, and I mean anything, is possible.

Linkin Park will NOT perform at the Metallica MtvIcon

I just saw a commercial about the Metallica&#39;s MtvIcon 5 minutes ago and it said that Avril, etc.. will perfom and then the said "and apperances by Linkin Park, etc..." so then they will not perform. :(

This is a short article of Linkin park on Metallica on Mtv.com.

"Best Metallica memory"

"Hey this is Phoenix from Linkin Park and my favorite Metallica memory was when they came around doing the Monster of Rock tour with Guns ‘N Roses. At that point in my life that was probably the best thing that ever happened to me, it was a great tour – everything about it."

"This is Chester from Linkin Park. I think my best Metallica moment was the first time I had ever heard Metallica&#39;s music. It was Ride the Lightning and that&#39;s probably my favorite song that they do, and that kind of opened me up to the whole style of music and kind of made me understand the cliché of heavy metal for being wastoids and idiots – at least in my school it was uncool to be one of the heavy metal guys. And I couldn&#39;t understand it because Metallica was writing such great music with such great lyrics and it was so intricate and complicated and smart. And I think that was one of the pivotal moments for me when I decided I had to put my preconceptions down and be open minded to all different kinds of things."


Edit: I just got an e-mail from the limpbizkit website and it said..
"limpbizkit will be performing Metallica&#39;s "Sanitarium" and mtvIcon also has performances from Korn and Metallica and appearances by Staind and Linkin Park. It&#39;s a show you don&#39;t want to miss... " :(

Well, as long as they&#39;re there. To be honest, I didn&#39;t want them to perform a Metallica song. (Yes, it would have been a Metallica song since the entire concept is around them. If you&#39;ve seen the other MTV Icon&#39;s like Aerosmith and Janet Jackson, you&#39;d be familiar with this.)

hey guys. I&#39;m not exactly sure if this can be 100% reliable or not, but my digital cable company has info on all tv shows and I checked about the MtvIcon tonight, and this is what it had-

"Avril Lavigne, Korn, Limp Bizkit, Linkin Park and Sum 41 are among the acts who pay tribute to the heavy-metal rockers by offering up renditions of the band&#39;s songs."

again, I&#39;m not sure. they could be wrong, and so could RS, but at least we know that LP will be making an appearance one way or another. :)

What city of NJ? Because I also live in NJ and have digital cable. I also saw the information on the show and it said the same thing.

I watched the Metallica thing, but only the performances. Every time they cut to stories, I hit the mute button and did some homework. Damn, Korn and limpbizkit were awesome.

I watched the whole thing, it was pretty good. Although, I think the new bassist(Ozzy&#39;s old bassist) shouldn&#39;t have been there. He just joined Metallica not long ago, he hasn&#39;t really accomplished anything yet with them so I don&#39;t think he deserved to be basically called a rock-icon. I don&#39;t even think the old bassist was even there, he should have been there, he&#39;s the bassist that was with them while they were becoming icons.

I thought Jason Newsted and them had fought and broke apart? Wouldn&#39;t that be really awkward to see them on stage together if they had each other?

I think it would have been awkward too..

I watched MtvICON last night.. It kicked so much ass&#33; Limp Bizkit and KoRn were awsome&#33; Even Avril Lavigne was pretty good (never ever thought I&#39;d say that :wth: ) If u haven&#39;t checked this out yet.. I highly recommend u do so..
