Metallica To Play Free Show In London

October 28, 1997 12:00 AM ET

Heavy metal kings Metallica may still be searching for a place to play a free show in the U.S., but it seems as though they found somewhere to play in Britain.

The English music weekly NME reports the acclaimed rock quartet will perform at Ministry of Sound in London on Nov. 13; though no admission will be charged, fans are encouraged to contribute money for charity.

The free concert will help celebrate the Nov. 18 release of Re-Load, a collection of 13 unreleased songs recorded during the band's Load sessions.

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
