Lars Ulrich says Metallica have always felt "like outsiders."
Despite being one of the biggest bands in the world after years of success, drummer Ulrich says the thrash icons have never felt like they "belonged to anything."
Ulrich tells Rolling Stone: "We've always connected to the edgy bits of culture. Obviously we've always felt kind of like outsiders.
"We've always felt like we never really belonged to anything."
But Ulrich insists he's happier on the fringes than being caught up in anything too mainstream.
"Even when I was 13, I never felt like I was part of a mainstream type of thing," he says.
