Like Jay Z did...
In an interview with The Guardian, Metallica's Lars Ulrich joked that the band could end up covering Oasis' "Wonderwall" at Glastonbury like Jay Z did in 2008. Oasis' Noel Gallagher previously criticized the decision for Jay Z to headline that year. Here are highlights:
On a metal band headlining Glastonbury: "Jay Z came out and played Wonderwall, right? So maybe we gotta go out and do our rendition of Wonderwall. We'll start with Wonderwall and we'll take it from there. Ha ha, listen, you've just gotta go out and be yourself and be proud of what you're doing."
On allowing fans at Sonisphere to choose their set list: "It is good fun when one's setlist is taken away from you, for somebody who likes to control his own environment like myself. I still get a chance to sequence it, thank you! But yeah, Glastonbury will be a straight-up Metallica setlist, whatever that may mean, since it's our first time playing there. I usually don't write the setlist before about 15-30 minutes before we go onstage, depending on what the mood is in the camp."
On Bruce Dickinson saying Iron Maiden is better than Metallica: "I will never argue with that. I will always support Bruce Dickinson in whatever nonsense he says. That's part of the fun. So go Iron Maiden! It's fine."
