Metallica’s Lars Ulrich might move back to Denmark if Donald Trump becomes US President

Drummer was born in Denmark before moving to LA at 16

Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich has indicated that he would consider moving back to his native country of Denmark if Donald Trump is elected as US President.

Ulrich was born in Gentofte, Denmark in 1963 and moved to Los Angeles at the age of sixteen before joining the metal band.

Speaking with Denmark’s Ekstra Bladet, Ulrich said: “I am a hundred percent Danish citizen, I pay taxes in the USA but I can’t vote in America.”


Asked if he’d consider leaving the US if Trump is elected in November, Ulrich replied: “Yes, certainly sometimes I think about moving home to Denmark.”

“I’ll stick to my Danish passport. If Trump becomes President and everything goes to shit, I might make my way to the airport and ask if I can get back in again.”


Meanwhile, The White Stripes have publicly condemned Republican presidential candidate Trump. The band’s song ‘Seven Nation Army’ was used in a promotional video for Donald Trump, which led Jack and Meg White to issue a rare joint statement.

Speaking in a statement issued through Third Man Records, the band said: “Regarding the use of ‘Seven Nation Army’ in a Donald Trump campaign video, The White Stripes would like to unequivocally state that they have nothing whatsoever to do with this video. They are disgusted by this association, and by the illegal use of their song.”
