Metallica's Lars Ulrich has said his band's headline slot at Glastonbury this year will be "something different" and will "shake up" the history of Glastonbury – watch the full interview above.

Speaking about the backlash against the metal band headlining the event, he says: "I am aware of the fact that there are some people with opinions, which is fine. There always is with opinions. We've been doing this for the better part of 30 years and everybody's always got something to say about Metallica… it's better that people have an opinion than no opinion."

He added: "Obviously Glastonbury is an institution and has a lineage and a history that is unlike anything else. And here comes the big bad hard rock band to shake all that up…"

He also added that he would be staying around to watch Kasabian headline the Sunday night of the festival, and would also be seeing The Black Keys, The Horrors, and Dolly Parton.
