Back in the '80s, Metallica was the shit of all shits. We all know this. If you were alive then and you were into metal, I'm sure you have some pictures with you wearing a) a Metallica T-shirt or b) the exact clothes Metallica would wear.
But things changed. I'll leave out all the details, because I'm going to guess everyone's heard a couple of the band's albums over the last 20 years. More relevant here is the fact that somewhere along the way into the '90s, the Metallica members lost their damn minds when it came to dressing themselves.
It's become really bad lately, but as some of these examples will show, things weren't much better around the very moment they became world-famous.
