46 million people have listened to 50 million hours of the Metallica’s music.
Thrash metal legend Metallica has announced that the band's discography has been streamed more than one billion times on music streaming platform Spotify.
In a Twitter post, the band wrote: "ONE. BILLION. STREAMS. 1,026 decades of Metallica music was streamed in 2019! Unreal! Thanks to the most dedicated fans in the world… you all are incredible!"
Several years ago, the band refused to licence their music on the platform. Until 2012, the band finally allowed the Spotify to let their music be a part of the platform. In 2019, some 46 million people have listened to 50 million hours of the band's music.

However, Spotify is not the first music platform Metallica fought against. In 2000, they sued Napster for copyright infringement which resulted in a tumultuous lawsuit.
