I don't think they ran out of good ideas. Death Magnetic proved that. They just tried to go mainstream for a while, their fans gave them shit for it, and eventually they listened and went back to their roots and made a pretty damn decent comeback album. Nothing wrong with that, really. At the end of the day, it'd probably be better if they hadn't made Load, Reload and St. Anger, sure - but then we wouldn't have GIMMEFUGIMMEFAGIMMEDAWAZABAZA!
