I don't think Metalica were the worst offenders, they may have a sense of humour about they're history but its not like they stopped playing stuff from that era. One of the worst were The Almighty - jumped on every bandwagon going (glam, biker rock, grunge) before trying to go 'punk' on Crank declaring that they never listened to hard rock, and ditched all the tunes bar a couple. Funny that they thought being released the same week as REM would stop them getting a number 1 album - it didn't go Top 10. Next album had Britpop stuff and horns on it.
