Reaffirming the true spirit of heavy metal music, this week, Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett drop-kicked a toddler.


  • Physics.
Actually, it looks like he was wandering around looking to "Seek and Destroy" some balloons at this concert in Sydney, and he accidentally kicked one balloon that was unknowingly blocked on its opposite side by the face and torso of a small child. (See scientific reconstruction to the right).

He then had to continue rocking, while nervously trying to get a look at what he had just done. After a moment of concern, he quickly remembered who he is and what he does, and wheeled back around to continue melting drunk Australian faces.

The end score - metal: 1, babies: 0.
