Though the high-impact sound of Mötley Crüe's many-times-platinum 1989 album, Dr. Feelgood, was what ultimately inspired Metallica to hire Dr. Feelgood producer Bob Rock to produce their even-more-times-platinum 1991 self-titled effort, it's difficult to imagine the Bay Area quartet jamming on one of the glam metal landmark's tracks.

More difficult still is imagining Metallica's lead electric guitar ace, Kirk Hammett, finally settling his band's often-rocky relationship with fellow thrash pioneers Megadeth via a guitar duel – over a Mötley Crüe song, no less – with the latter band's former lead axeman, Marty Friedman.
