Beatallica is a Beatles/Metallica mash-up band that has been active since 2001. A typical song by then combines a song by the Beatles with a song by Metallica (e.g., The Thing That Should Not Let it Be, A Garage Dayz Nite, Everybody's Got A Ticket to Ride Except Me and My Lightning, etc.), although in some cases it's just a Beatles song with different lyrics, mostly being criticisms against glam metal (I Want to Choke Your Band) or references to blood (All You Need Is Blood, see below for more information). They have two studio albums, three EPs and a maxi-single.

HistoryEdit

The band was formed in 2001 at the annual Spoof Fest in Milwaukee, the orginal two being Jaymz Lennfield and Krk Hammetson. The EP A Garage Dayz Nite (see below) was recorded as a memento and a few copies were handed out to friends. Eventually, it found its way online a year later thanks to Dr. David Dixon, who made a web page for them and gave the MP3s for free. He was also the one to name the band "Beatallica". A year later (2002), David met the band, who was unaware of the website up until that point, and presented them with a stack of e-mails, which prompted them to make their second EP, Beatallica, also known as The Grey Album, which was released online April 1st, 2004. After signing with label Oglio, the band released full-length albums Sgt. Hetfield's Motorbreath Pub Band (2007) and Masterful Mystery Tour (2009). Their third, Abbey Load (2013), was hit with legal action by Sony Music, the distributor of Oglio and owner of the Beatles' catalogue through Sony/ATV Music Publishing, forcing them to use the original Beatles lyrics. Parodies of George Harrison's "Something" and "Here Comes the Sun" were also vetoed by his estate.
