METALLICA were honored with the 2004 Governors Award for creative excellence and outstanding achievement by the San Francisco Chapter of the Recording Academy. The 2004 Governors Awards gala — the Chapter's largest fundraiser of the year — was held on Monday, March 15 in the Grand Ballroom of the historic Westin St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco's Union Square.

According to a posting on METALLICA's web site, "the guys received their award from well-known local concert promoter Gregg Perloff, who has no shortage of stories about live METALLICA shows in the Bay Area and managed to tell a few last night. Band friend and neighbor, Carlos Santana, performed in a tribute to Mickey Hart while a local all-star band, including Chino from the DEFTONES, saluted METALLICA. Each band member spoke about what San Francisco and the thriving music scene means to them and the long historical connection between the band and the city by the Bay."
