    Shawn Fanning, Napster, Metallica.
    Taking shots at each other. I don’t know anybody who actually bought one of Metallica’s albums after the big kerfluffle. I stopped listening to them, altogether.

    Shawn Fanning appeared as a presenter at the MTV VMAs
    wearing a Metallica T-shirt and when asked where he got it, stated, “a friend of mine shared it with me.” Lars Ulrich’s reaction was shown as yawning and feigned boredom.

    This was after Metallica sued Napster

    “Napster founder Shawn Fanning — hero to the masses and the man in 2000 most reviled by the music industry suits — took the VMA stage to present an award in a Metallica t-shirt that a friend “shared” with him. It is rumored that it was the straw that sent Metallica, who sued their fans as a result of file sharing on Napster, into group therapy.”

    At the 2000 MTV Video Music Awards, Ulrich appeared in a skit with host Marlon Wayans that blasted the idea of using Napster to share music. Napster creator Shawn Fanning responded later in the ceremony by presenting an award wearing a Metallica shirt, saying, “I borrowed this shirt from a friend. Maybe, if I like it, I’ll buy one of my own..Metallica issued a legal notice against napster in 2000
