The metal legends are coming to Springfield...
Metallica are to appear in the The Simpsons.
The metal giants, who rocked the hell out of Download festival last month, will follow in the footsteps of U2, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Paul McCartney, Rolling Stones, Aerosmith and Ricky Gervais, as a guest in the hit cartoon series.
Metallica appear in the first show of the 18th season, which airs in the US on September 10 and in the UK shortly afterwards.
