Yeah-Yeah! It's James Hetfield's Birthday!

Metallica frontman/sage to us all James Hetfield turns 53 today (August 3rd), and we'd be lying if we said we didn't all scream, "YEAH!" once we realized it's his birthday.

Of course, the Hetfield "Yeah" bit has launched countless memes and is featured on one particularly entertaining soundboard, but one of our favorite things is the "Yeah Supercut" below.  In our eyes, it's a classic for two reasons:

1.  It really does make you realize just how much "yeah" is utilized in the Metallica catalog.


2.  We really appreciate the time and effort that went into editing this gem.

Metallica, so far, only has two shows dates for the rest of 2016, but if the band are as close to completing their new album as has been hinted, we're hoping 2017 will be a more active touring year, and that's definitely something to exclaim "Yeah!" about.
