Bring back article ...And Justice for All (song)Edit

This article should be brought back: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=...And_Justice_for_All_(song)&oldid=956553871 .its a promo single and we have an extra secion for that, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Metallica Literally cant name a single reason why it should be deleted. the fact that there were tries to bring the article back by other users (https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=...And_Justice_for_All_(song)&diff=641145590&oldid=580815701&diffmode=source) shows that there was never a consensus to delete it either. If "Better than You" warrants its own page, then this one does tooUrgal (talk) 01:06, 14 May 2020 (UTC)

Urgal, "I don't see why it should be deleted", "someone else also tried to restore it" and "if __________ has an article, then so should this" are very thin arguments. There isn't enough material for the song to warrant its own article as it is, and if you take away all of the unsourced content, there is even less reason to have an article. 4TheWynne (talk contribs) 03:01, 14 May 2020 (UTC)
how do we not have enough material, have you even looked at the article? its more stuff than most articles for other songs. also please explain how it being a promo single doesnt warrant an own page?? again, we have an extra section for promotional songs, that alone is enough of a reason. its weird asf how badly you want this page gone, it doesnt even make sense. 03:10, 14 May 2020 (UTC)
the song has as an article in 13 other languages wikipedia btw
I agree with 4TheWynne, not extensive or even notable enough to warrant an article of its own. Your arguments for, are as 4TheWynne says, rather thin and having an article in 50 other languages is still not a good reason imo. Robvanvee 06:37, 14 May 2020 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 26 July 2020Edit

Metallica was created on October 28. Please add the exact date. It is written on their website.

  Not done: it's not clear what changes you want to be made. Please mention the specific changes in a "change X to Y" format and provide a reliable source if appropriate. JTP (talkcontribs) 18:29, 26 July 2020 (UTC)

Genre additionEdit

I believe that speed metal should be added to the Metallica genres as per this source. JJPMaster (talk) 22:40, 9 August 2020 (UTC)

Added where? To the infobox or elsewhere in the article? SolarFlashDiscussion 22:32, 14 August 2020 (UTC)
The infobox. JJPMaster (talk) 18:36, 17 August 2020 (UTC)
Well, does the article state clearly that Metallica is "speed metal", anywhere in the prose? If it does, and it's reliably sourced, you are free to add the genre to the infobox. If it doesn't you can't. I should also point out that the guidelines require us to "aim for generality" when adding infobox genres, and I think "heavy metal" and "thrash metal" cover the band well enough without disregarding the rules just to add a sub genre. SolarFlashDiscussion 19:22, 17 August 2020 (UTC)
That Britannica article states "developed the subgenre speed metal" in the first paragraph, then never mentions speed metal again. It does mention heavy metal and thrash metal later. -Fnlayson (talk) 19:35, 17 August 2020 (UTC)
No, this article, not the Britannica source. Does this Wikipedia article about Metallica state clearly anywhere in the prose that Metallica is "speed metal"? I'm pretty sure it does not. Read my above comment if you need any clarification. SolarFlashDiscussion 21:28, 17 August 2020 (UTC)
