The title is a combination of Garage Days Re-Revisited and their song Damage, Inc. Over 5 million copies have been sold in the US as certified by the RIAA.

Reception[change | change source]

Professional reviews:

  • Rolling Stone (12/10/99, p. 122) - 4 Stars (out of 5) -"Gloriously hard as the album is, you can't miss Metallica's good natured side coming through."
  • Entertainment Weekly (12/18/98, p. 84) - "We'll have to wait until Metallica's next `proper' album to find out if this trip to the garage recharges their batteries. Still, all things considered, Garage Inc. is an intermittently exhilarating joyride." - Rating: B-
  • CMJ (12/21/98, p. 29) - "Those who still relate to the adolescent angst of the 'Metallicats' earliest days will find plenty to like on Garage Inc."
