James Hetfield as Nietzschean Yes-Sayer

James Hetfield as Nietzschean Yes-Sayer March 17, 2013

Nietzsche, in the Gay Science 276, writes:

I want to learn more and more to see as beautiful what is necessary in things; then I shall be one of those who make things beautiful. Amor fati: let that be my love henceforth! I do not want to wage war against what is ugly. I do not want to accuse; I do not even want to accuse those who accuse. Looking away shall be my only negation. And all in all and on the whole: some day I wish to be only a Yes-sayer.

Here is James Hetfield sublimely bringing to life this Nietzschean passage, with the production help of Kevin Conklin who has spliced together numerous Metallica songs:
