Kirk Hammett Really Sucks!

Kirk Hammett really sucks! Why, you may ask? On this site, I present my reasons on why he’s over-rated and over-hyped, as well as links to some TALENTED guitarists.

  1. Honestly as a guitarist
    Anonymous

    Honestly as a guitarist myself, i agree he aint the best guitarist out there, but he is a decent one. A lot of people don’t seem to realize writing solos is a helluva lot harder than playing ones people have come up with for you. Also (ooh here comes the hate) Kirk has definantly got a unique style, and quite a bit of creativity and some technical skill. Wah pedal might be implanted into his foot but still, that just proves he has a unique style.
    In conclusion: He isnt the best or most skillful, but he has got a very recognisable style, if someone played a solo to me by hammett, i would probably be able to recognise who it was by.
    Also in my opinion he has quite a bit of stage presence, but he also knows when to dial it down a bit.

  2. Kirk is awesome!
    Anonymous

    Most of you guys are really idiots,who told you that you need to play fast to be good?Kirk may not be the fastest or most technical player,but I’d rather listen to the solo in Enter Sandman(seriously overrated) for 5 hours in a row than a second of Rusty Cooley’s guitar wanking.Kirk is an average guitarist,but he’s got feel and knows when to show off and when to make a smaller solo and let the others shine.Plus,he is a total beast live and always makes those solos more interesting.Rather than bashing one of the most well known and popular guitarists around(and overrated,I agree) why don’t you go practice until you can properly play Smoke on the Water.When you made 4 of the greatest Thrash Metal albums ever and the best selling metal album ever,then you can bash Kirk,until then you are just idiots with too much spare time.

    1. Hey guys. Does anyone else
      Anonymous

      Hey guys. Does anyone else have the understanding that music is something to be listened to and generally people who listen to it couldn’t give a monkeys left nut what scale it is in or how technical it is. After playing guitar for nearly 30 years and teaching it to many I can assure you any dumb ass can copy given enough time but could probably never write it themselves. Don’t bad mouth people that have obviously inspired generations to be as good or better. All those that hate evidently never got anywhere with their life or they would celebrate others talents rather than envy it. How could anyone have the audacity to proclaim that any famous musician is no good. Come on really?!

    2. Totally false
      Anonymous

      False at all Kirk is a guitarist that try to play fast but because he is a average guitarist he can’t. By the way I don’t know where the feel in his solo its all the fucking same boring solo with identical sound and overuse of the wah pedal you call this feeling lol

    3. thats why..!
      Anonymous

      Thats why he is over-rated, because of the fact that the only thing he does is he plays fast and all the dumb people out there are like “AMAZING, THIS GUY IS SO FAST AND HIS SKILLS ARE HILARIOUS”. I like Metallica as well and Kirk has got some nice skills, but every solo has the same aim >> FASTER, FASTER,FASTER…thats not bad, because this is Metal!!!! Kirk had such a amzing teacher who is part of the G4, yes Joe Satriani and not just Kirk was his student also Steve Vai. And now please look at the diffrence of Kirk and Vai, lets look at the solo of “Enter Sandman”(1) and “Seek and Destroy”(2) in (1) it start of with bendings and slidings and in (2) with hammer and pull off. If you look at it theoretical than this is what you lern as an beginner, maybe not as fast but still he uses the basics instead of creating his on style like Steve Vai did. Then in (1) there is bending again, and in (2) there comes in some variation in notes but still both of the solos are build up in a range of 8-10 notes, like A1-C2 whatever im not sure. So lets look at Steve Vai “Crossroad” in this solo the range of Notes are 20-30, and also he brought in some dynamics. This is here is not telling you that Kirk cant play and he sucks not im just telling you that most of his performance can be played by many guitarists who played at least 5-6 years!

      Dont forget its easy to play but hard to write!

  3. Not the best, not the worst.
    Ricky Montero

    Felt tempted to search through this site while I was listenting "Sad but true" Exactly at the point Kirk started to play…

    What can I say, I like the guy, he doesnt look self centered as Yngwie, and didnt get wasted for 20 years in a roll like VH (who is my idol).

    But I need to accept that when the guitar solo begins, I wish some other guy was in charge, like Jake E Lee, Vito Bratta, Murray or Smith, Zakk Wylde, Malmsteen… It doesnt need to be a tricky solo just something to make sense. Look Angus, he is not the fastest guitar player in the world or use any weird flamenco scales, just a lot of soul… And damn I love him

    Sometimes I feel like he isplaying in a different tone or scale, perhaps that was the intention cause his buddies from megadeth do that a lot too…

    I wonder, how come he is able to create all these awesome riffs, the best riffs in the world perhaps, but then spoiled the party with that frikin solo? Even the sound man….

  4. Just my unbiased opinion
    Me

    Metallica is not the best metal band in the world and Kirk is not the best guitarist. Who is? Probably some unknown musician who works days in a music store and plays in a local band at night. The industry is bulls**t and it’s about luck and marketing. IMO the reason Metallica has done better than the others is because a) they wrote good songs (yeah, they did) and b) Hetfield has a "neutral" voice and Metallica was neutral in general as far as style, etc. What I mean by this is Hetfields voice worked in the 80’s, it worked in the 90’s, and it still works today. Operatic singers like Dickinson, Belladonna, and Tate were very much with the times of the 80’s and lost popularity when grunge hit. Grunge had that nasally twang and lost popularity to the screaming hardcore sound that remains today. Other 80’s bands dressed like women and wore lipstick, Metallica wore jeans and t-shirts. As for Hammet, he isn’t that great, but he isn’t that bad. His band is famous and therefore he is as well. The one who SUCKS is Lars. He is a shitty drummer who got lucky. I’m surprised he made it in the days before ProTools. As for current Metallica, they’ve sucked since Justice. Luck, blind fan loyalty, and the money to polish turds in the studio.

      bbbgh

      : I can’t speak for anyone else, but all the people I know who think he’s great know absolutely nothing about guitar playing/music whatsoever. They just know what they like the sound of – ear bleeding noise with as much distortion/wah as possible – which consequently covers up almost all the inaccuracies and faults in his technique!!

      he is a funcking fagg aand is the worst guitarist in the history ever becuase he used his wah every time

      I agree. He is an idol among teenagers and guitar newbies. I myself was a big fan of him… when I was 14.

      1. Hetfield is a much better guitarist than Hammett
        Anonymous

        I have always thought Hetfield was a much better guitarist than Kirk Hammett. I am not a musician but I know what sounds good to my ears. I like Metallica but Hammett seems a little sloppy to me. I don’t think he is horrible but I think he could do much better. Hetfield is the best lead guitar player in Metallica.

  5. Kirk Hammett sucks because he's overrated
    Glen Tipton

    He is honestly not that good. And I’d have no problem with that, but when people start calling him ‘God’ or ‘Awesome’ or other names he doesn’t deserve, that pisses me off. Metallica fans are one of the most stupid groups of people, because they blindly follow them and love the shitty people in the band, like Kirk. Who’s better?

    K.K. Downing
    Glen Tipton
    Dave Murray
    Adrian Smith
    Janick Gers
    Dave Mustaine
    Chris Poland
    Marty Friedman

    etc.

    Besides, he’d be s**t if wah pedals didn’t exist!

  6. kirk is alright...
    Glennox

    yeah… hey jordano west… i dont think there’s a problem with that… i mean, why would you care if we listen to metallica? why? its our freedom… what’s your problem? did kirk ran away from you after you sucked his dick? come on man… so what if kirk’s influenced by blues musician… who cares? metal is not about who influenced you or whatever… well… my guitar hero is scott ian of anthrax and i dont really have a problem with that… ya better suck your mind dude… you dont know anything…

  7. Kirk is awsm
    Metallica fan

    For u morons that r saying kirk just plain out stinks ur wacked,, Kirk is one of the best lead guitarists that will evr live … and for all the morons saying sum1 like Angus Young is better than Hammett, u can cram it.. cumpared to kirk angus suks, at leest kirks leads involve some skill.

  8. Kirk Hammett is good.
    Launch the Polaris

    Kirk is a very talented musician.
    You can’t say he sucks, he’s been with metallica forn nearly 25 years and he didn’t stop playing guitar.

    He is good, but not the best.

  9. KIRK SUCKS!
    kevin rezendes

    Although kirk has great sound…too bad he doesn’t know how to play leads..I say he should be a wah wah pedal player for someone.

    1. Re: KIRK SUCKS!
      jeff williamson

      Kirk Hammet’s solos are repetitive and sloppy. He is not nearly as good as John Petrucci, Jeff Loomis, Michael Romeo, Michael Angelo Batio, Rusty Cooley… need I go on? People who cnsider Kirk Hammet one of the best guitarists are ignorant and people who don’t know what real metal virtuosos sound like.

    2. Re: Paco de Lucia: Hammett father
      Phoenix

      The best guitar player is Paco de Lucia, an spanish flamenco musician. He can make you flying around with just one of his perfect songs.Paco de Lucia taught Hammett when kirk was only 17 years old(at the same time satriani taught kirk too).

  10. Jesus Christ.
    Josh

    Go figure, the Metallica fans are defending Metallica. Face it, Metallica is mediocre. Go ahead, its your right to listen to it. Just leave everyone else out of it if you’re a true fan. Being a guitarist, there’s nothing I hate more than hearing "Play some Metallica". Not everybody like Metallica. When you try to mention any guitarist, no matter who you get something like "No one is as good as Kirk Hammett! Its impossible". Here’s an example of how I, and many others, feel. Most Metallica fans hate rap right (Metallica being "Metal")? We’ll isn’t it annoying when you’re foreced to listen to it everywhere you go, be it a movie, videogame, record store, open house party. Well to many guitarists, Metallica is like rap. Its just something we have to put up with. So do everyone a favor and don’t spread Metallica around like its the goddamned plague. And one more thing, there is no such thing as THE best guitarist. Once you acheive a certain level of virtuosity ala Alexi Laiho, Steve Vai and Malmsteen, you’re pretty much equal in skill. Kirk Hammett hasn’t gotten to that point yet. Want to follow up? -Bobtheyak(at)hotmail(dot)com-

  11. What do you know? You know jack s**t
    Guitar player guy

    I know how to play alot of guitarist’s stuff and I KNOW what is hard and not. What is tallent and not. I bet you anything you’ll have more trouble playing Kirks s**t than Yngwie Malmsteen’s (if you even know who he is). Kirks style is Blues/rock/metal. The blues may cause you to wonder that he isn’t "up as good as other talented guitarists" but he is the best in his category. email me if you wanna talk. I don’t like people who dis on guitarists who don’t know one thing to begin with. First of all my favorite guitarist is Rusty Cooley. CHeck him out at http://www.rustycooley.com (hes way better and faster than Michael Angelo Batio). Anyways Kirk ROCKS YOUR ASS.

      Oh and btw Dyer’s Eve has one of the most complicated sweeps ever in the solo opening. It includes a bend and must be sweep at 16th notes. Not many guitarist can sweep major ass bends and keep it CLEAN SOUNDING. And you people who talk about him having no tremlo or whatever…. not all guitarists have everything. Kirk KICKS ASS, no matter what. He broke history, ask any TRUE musician that!

  12. OMG

      Anonymous

      Your retarded kirk hammet sucks to much cock to the best dude i mean just listen to the solos from master of blowjobs and then compare to an actual okay solo like the solo in tornado of souls or pain killer by judist priest or any song from slayer. I think you’ll see kirk and metallica are just ok because really that band is far to over rated.

  14. You all suck.
    You all suck.

    All you naysayers suck. How many of you are making a gazillion dollars a year doing something you love (playing guitar)? Kirk is one of the rare few on this planet who is living the dream. Personally, I don’t give a s**t if he’s the best or not, he’s a damn fine guitarist, and that’s all that matters. There’s always gonna be somebody out there who’s better – some unknown guy who plays 12 hours a day in his shed… best isn’t always heard. And Dimebag was shot in the head (sad face) so the crown goes back to Kirk.

    1. Re: You all suck. silly people
      kevin rezendes

      hahahahahahaha….I suppose your gonna say BOB DYLAN has a great voice too? Or that BOY GEORGE isn’t gay!? Hahahahahahahaha OH PLEASE…Maybe when he started he was a fine player but he never blossomed.. THats it he never blossomed …he never even tried to be better..and that sucks!!!!!If i was in that band i would have considered firing him along time ago..anyone can grow their hair long..buy a wah wah pedal and use it..and play the pentatonic scale..hahahahahahahaYour silly if you think he is a fine guitar player..hahahahaha your either deaf? blind and deaf? or just plain dumb…???? email me if you wanna talk about it!

    It is nice hearing from everybody but now it is time to hear from some musicians! The truth is Kirk really does suck!! Zero feel!! But one thing is he can play the hell out of the pentatonic scale!!

      **** you, I'm not telling you my name!

      And I say Kirk kicks ass, have you ever seen him live? He’s on fire, and his solos are awesome!

        Deno McThrash

        Kirk Hammett can suck a big fat donky dick, what he calls solos is what other guitar players do for warmups, the same two pentatonic patterns are in every solo oh and lets not forget the fact that his wah pedal is surgically glued to his foot.

  23. Kirk Hammetts solo's kick ass!!!!!!
    Matthew Lancaster

    Kirk might not be the best guitarist I can name 50 guys that are better than him, but he is Metallica…nobody but him could think of those solos like kirk could…he mixes jazz with rock to make some awesome solos. some were fast like from battery and creeping death and some were slow from fade to black and one. That’s why he’s great he can do so many different things and it still revolves around metal. metallica isn’t metallica without kirk and metallica is the greatest metal band on the face of the universe!!!!!!

      No… Anyone with good knowledge of a pentatonic scale could make those solos. And you say he mixs jazz with rock ? LOL… Where to? Kirk is garbage, his work is garbage. Listen to his teacher, Joe Satriani, who is better then Kirk could ever dream of being…

    2. I think you are the one who needs some guidance, dighead, what you say is WRONG.
    3. Why are you thinking kirk hammett is a male prostitute? Are you sexually attracted to him or something, faggot? (Besides even if he was it wouldn’t had to do a s**t with wether kirk is good or not).

    All by all: you suck

  29. KIRK RULEZZZZZZ……He’ defenitely NOT overrated….and if you think he’s overrated cause he blows, well you don’t get the point I think about when a guitarist is overrated. And if you can play what he can, I’m impressed….His solo’s are **** ing awesome, and without kirk metallica would have been not such a good band.

    1. Re: Kirk hammett
      Kevin Rezendes

      Ok……We can all argue about this for years! To me being a guitarist for years and meeting a lot of "creative" guitarists, I know that Kids and a lot of beginners of the Guitar. Love Kurk Hammett..Why? Maybe because Kurk continues to ruin all the metalica songs with his over use of the wah wah pedal and pentetonic scale? Solo’s that only kids and beginners will find challenging . OMG! WTF? You people should listen to zack wylde or what Dimebag Darrel has left us. Kurk hammett has the creativity of a clam. Yeah he can dance around and play his wah wah pedal (actually he doesn’t play it anymore , he has his guitar tech do it lol "oh brother")..But he really can’t play the guitar ..Um..I wouldn’t even call him a guitarist! He’s a wah wahist!LOL I’d love it if anyone of kurks fans would challenge me on this! OMG! if i was in that band i would fire his ass! And have the singer solo when need be in the song.
      Don’t get me wrong Metalica has SOME good songs but when it comes time for the solo’s I usally turn it down or turn it off! His soloing just **** s with me, **** s with me in such a way i start vearing off into …How did Bob Dylan get signed and how did p diddy get signed? I think of all the terrible acts that get signed?

      Kirk is overrated, he can’t sing, he yels somthing, he really sucks. With concerts he does nothing but sit on a chair and hit with his hand on his guitar. What on asshole. They should hit his face tille he can’t move.

        : Dude what the hell are you talking about you no knothing sack of shit. what does singing have anything to do with playing your guitar? ok, so you think you know what you are talking about, so give me this… why did ESP make 2…yes 2 signature guitars for him. have they made one for you . i thnk not. number two, can you play dyers eve? i doubt it. three, do you think metallica would have wanted him if he was no good? hell no. they picked someone for that style of music, who just so happens to be THE BEST metal guitarist on earth. you think people listen to Metallica because they want to hear james sing..i think not. i can garentee that everysingle person that owns any album before load ahas fastforwarded to the solos in most of the songs. hes rock, and you suck dick.

        he might suck a donkey **** but he is still overall a better guitarist, if you like a fast (but fluid), aggressive and technical sound.
