Metallica have taken to their official instagram to announce their drummer Lars Ulrich has been knighted.

The hard hitting drummer was knighted by Frederick, Crown Prince of Denmark.

In the announcement the band stated; “Not bad for a snot-nosed kid from Gentofte!”



The knighting was the Knight’s Cross of the Order of Dannebrog, it’s honouring and rewarding for particular contribution to the arts working for Danish interests, meaning the Danish born musician has made his country proud and Denmark loves metal.

The drummer took time out of the huge Metallica Worldwired Tour to accept the knighting.
