Metallica have always been the hardest working band in the world. That's why they're the biggest band in the world too! And they prove it time and time again.

At Australia's annual Soundwave Festival Metallica headlined the day long event. Closing out the main stage following bands like Linkin Park, A Perfect Circle, Slayer, Stone Sour and Anthrax isn't easy, but when you're Metallica its no sweat.

To prove it they killed an 18 song set! 18 Metallica songs! With most of their songs clocking in over 6 minutes that's a TON of metal! That's actually around 2 full hours of Metallica! That's bad-ass.

Here's their set list, and I posted some fan-shot videos under that.
