    I read that... a spot-on satire of Metallica, IMO, but totally apocryphal.

    As the story goes, they sued claiming rights to the ol' Emaj-Fmaj heavy metal chord progression (often played without a 3rd), making sport both of Metallica's litigiousness, self-righteousness, and undue regard for their own simplistic music.
