Garage Inc. is a covers / compilation studio album by American metal band Metallica, originally released in November 1998 by Elektra Records.

For many years, Metallica's 1987 EP Garage Days Re-Revisited was the most sought-after item in their catalog; it was constantly bootlegged in the '90s, and often supplemented by a host of covers Metallica had released on singles and compilations throughout the years.

By 1998, the band had understandably grown frustrated with this situation and decided to confront the problem head-on by reissuing all these rarities. Savvy businessmen that they are, they also realized they needed to give hardcore fans who already owned all the covers a reason to purchase the new set, hence, the expansion of the Garage Days EP to the blowout Garage Inc..

It shouldn't come as a surprise that these covers recall the blooze 'n' boogie heavy rock of the Loads, but what is a surprise is that Metallica seems to have found their footing in this style through other people's songs. Whether it's Bob Seger, Blue Öyster Cult, Thin Lizzy, Nick Cave, or the all-star jam on Lynyrd Skynyrd's “Tuesday's Gone”, the band effortlessly makes the songs seem like their own, through a bizarre mix of respect and ballsy irreverence. It may not be nearly as raw as early Metallica, but if raw is what you want, the equally diverse second disc provides all the thrills you could hope for.

At one time, it might have seemed a little odd that Metallica would cover Budgie, Diamond Head, the Misfits, and Queen, but if Garage Inc. proves anything, it's that the group's musical instincts, risks, and sense of humour have made them the greatest metal band of the '80s and '90s.

In addition to the original covers from “Garage Days”, Garage Inc. includes The $5.98 E.P.: Garage Days Re-Revisited, which had gone out of print since its original release in 1987, and B-sides from other cover Eps and singles.

Check out some of the choice cuts:

Turn The Page, Mercyful Fate, Die, Die My Darling, Whiskey In The Jar, Breadfan, Stone Cold Crazy, Helpless and The Wait.

This limited triple LP reissue on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve is pressed in Europe by Blackened Records.
