{{Non-free fair use rationale Description=The cover of the album Metallica, by Metallica. It features only the band's logo, angled against the upper left corner, and a coiled snake (derived from the Gadsden flag) on the bottom right corner, both in a dark shade of gray in order to be made out against the black background. The motto of the Gadsden flag, "Don't Tread on Me", is also the title of a song featured on the album. Article= Metallica (album) Portion=Image of the front cover of the audio recording. Portion reproduced is a small chunk of the entire copyrighted recording, which includes other cover art and the singles themselves. The use here of the front cover image does not preclude the copyright holder from profiting on or marketing the album. Purpose=For informational purposes - to illustrate the article Metallica (album), which describes the album. Resolution= Yes Replaceability=No. Album cover is copyrighted, thus non-free alternatives cannot be produced.
