Metallica and Lou Reed Post Video for “The View”

Metallica and Lou Reed have released a video for their song, “The View,” from their collaborative album, Lulu. It is directed by Darren Aronofsky, who is known for dark movies like Black Swan, Requiem for a Dream, and The Wrestler. “The first time I heard ‘The View’ I was stunned,” Aronofsky told, where the song premiered. “I had never heard anything like it. Half was all Lou. The other half all Metallica. It was a marriage that on the surface made no sense, but the fusion changed the way I thought about both artists and morphed into something completely fresh and new.”

    I love the way we have to cut something down when it doesn’t fit into our cookie cutter world.

    So much for a director when there was nothing to the video.  Then again, all of Requiem for a Dream looked like this.

    Perfect example of when $$money$$ becomes more important than the music itself…..

  • Necroxide

    wow this suck … without lou  the rest would be ok ..  maybe we should never call this Metallica and lou reed , but Lou reed and metallica is the real name for this shit.. maybe he payed them or somthing… seriously I will make people mad , but I really think a band like korn mix with DUBstep , give a better ‘shit’ than metallica mix with LULU…

  • Necroxide

    HAHA he realy say IM THE TABLE XD …
    sorry for naming korn here , but I was speaking of reputaton of a band  . I  just think metallica do a bigger mistake here..this will affect they reputation way more..

    oh my god this is so bad. I am a huge Metallica fan (yes, I even liked some of st. anger) but this is horrible! They should have gotten william shatner to do the speaking. Would have sounded exactly the same!

  • Tim Stanley

    What the fuck is this garbage? What have you done metallica? You used to rock. Now I’m ashamed to admit that I still listen to your old (really old) stuff. Fuck you metallica, fuck you, right in the neck. Fuckin sue me.

  • Mike Lavery

    maybe one of u self annointed critics  would like to maybe pick up a guitar and see if u got sumthin better to offer…ur all a joke!

    • dj

      You’re joking right? most of us could pick up a guitar and do something better then that. It’s one riff for the entire song, it’s not exactly hard to do one riff mate.
