We all know Metallica make loud music, if you didn’t the hint is in the band name, metal music is typically known for being a very loud style of music. However their recent hometown show was so loud, people in the surrounding areas took to Twitter to complain about the sound levels.
The group played an outdoor show at San Fransisco’s Civic Centre to raise money for San Francisco’s Benioff Children’s Hospital. The gig was a huge success and raised millions for the hospital, however it left some San Fransisco residents pretty unhappy. Check out some of the tweets and footage below.
If you stand at just the right spot on Market street you can hear Metallica play Dreamforce because the sound is literally bouncing off the Twitter building. I don’t know what the analogy is here. But I feel like it’s something. pic.twitter.com/Uj0YJaU7A0

I can’t sleep because that darn rock band down the street is too loud. Damn you Metallica

We’re pretty sure this is the first time in a very long time that Metallica has been referred to as “that darn rock band down the street”.
This Metallica set is so loud I'm pretty sure it's going to topple the Millennium Tower and put like 17 more cracks in the Transbay Transit Center. https://t.co/rrDPsSGFXj

Marc Benioff’s Metallica birthday concert is shaking the walls of my apartment from three miles away. Can someone please explain to me what Salesforce even does again?

It seems like this person might want to get their apartment checked for earthquake safety…
If the @metallica show at @dreamforce wasn't loud enough on its own, my building is definitely awake now thanks to the fireworks finale that activated the fire alarm on our roof and forced us to evacuate.

This one is just plain unlucky.
Metallica is currently touring behind their 2016 album Hardwired… To Self-Destruct and have plans to visit Australia soon for a long overdue tour. Recent shows have seen them performing some very interesting covers including an interesting rendition of Prince’s “When Doves Cry” and ABBA’s “Dancing Queen” in Sweden.
Until we get the tour announcement we’ve all been desperately awaiting for, check out the live video the group released for “Blackened” below, and see how loud you can play it before your neighbours complain on Twitter.
