These two musicians were later replaced by guitarist Dave Mustaine and bassist Cliff Burton, respectively. Mustaine was fired a year after joining the band due to his excessive addiction todrugs and alcohol, and founded the band Megadeth and was replaced by Kirk Hammett.

May be considered Metallica's history began in 1980 when a young Dane named LarsUlrich moved with his family to Los Angeles. Son of Ulrich profesionalTorben player, had developed an enormous fondness for heavy metal in the 70s, when the NWOBHM (New Wave Of British Heavy Metal, New Wave of British Heavy Metal) prevailed in the European underground scene, and his transfer to United States, in principle set by his father with the objective of preparing a career in professionaltennis, this hobby became almost an obsession, especially focusing on the most unknown of the new wave English. Its priority to get to Los Angeles, away from focusing on tennis, would be to exploit his musical ability with other youth. This will lead in 1981 to publish a notice in the Recycler magazine asking for a guitarist to form a band with influences from the NWOBHM bands, specificallyfocusing on their favorite bands: Diamond Head, Motörhead and Iron Maiden. Another young man named James Hetfield, the son of an owner of a trucking company and an opera singer and raised with a strict Christian background, responded to your ad. Took place then the first test set, and although at first not convinced Hetfield's playing of Ulrich, eventually forming a group. The key to this union wasthe subject that Lars was booked by his friend Brian Slagel, founder of the then newly founded record label Metal Blade Records, the first compilation that would edit the label, titled Metal Massacre.
The group's name was devised by a friend of Lars named Ron Quintana, who shuffled "Metal Mania" and "Metallica" as possible names for a new musical fanzine, although he leaned more to the latter. AUlrich was so taken quickly latter recommended (Quintana) the first to use it.
The term "science fiction" was coined by Hugo Gernsback in 1926 when he joined thecover of a magazine of speculative fiction's best-known of the 1920 United States:Amazing Stories (See SF magazines.) The earliest use of it seems to date from 1851and isattributed to William Wilson, but it is an isolated use of the term did not become widespread with its current meaning until Gernsback used it consistently (after making aprevious attempt with the term "scientifiction" that did not materialize).
It is quite possible that today use the word "cientificción" but Gernsback was forced tosell its first publication, which had that name. Without realizing it, had sold the rights to the term andvery reluctantly was forced to stop using it and instead use the term"science fiction. "
So, until the year 1926 science fiction does not exist as such. Until that date the storiesthat today do not hesitate to call science fiction received various names, such as"fantastic trip," tales of lost worlds, "" Utopias "," scientific romances "or" science fiction. "
