It has long been rumored that Hulk Hogan auditioned for Metallica after the death of Cliff Burton. Hogan recently cleared things up in an interview where he stated that he sent tapes into the band hoping they would give him a chance, but they never got back to him. Can you imagine if Hulkamania had gotten the chance to run wild on the metal scene?
Lars and Hulk could have been the greatest 1-2 punch the metal world had ever scene!
Think of the promotional shots the guys could have gotten together!
We'll never know what could have been, but one thing is certain. Hogan is actually a respectable bassist. Check out this footage of him jamming with a band in Sturgis!
