On June 22nd, 1996 – The mighty Metallica debuted at number #1 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart for the second time, with their sixth studio album: Load. This album spent four straight weeks on top of this chart and went on to sell five million (plus) copies in the United States. Holy head cheese! The classic Metallica band logo also changed for a more lame version, on this studio album too. That’s my Metal opinion.
