Garage Inc. is a cover/compilation album by the American heavy metal band Metallica. It was released on November 24, 1998 through Elektra Records. Over 2.5 million copies have been sold in the US as certified by the RIAA. It includes recorded cover songs, all of their B-side covers released up to that point, and the entire The $5.98 E.P.: Garage Days Re-Revisited, which had gone out of print since its original release in 1987.

The title is a combination of Garage Days Re-Revisited and their song "Damage, Inc." The album features artists that have influenced Metallica, including many bands from the New Wave of British Heavy Metal movement.



  • Penthouse (12/10/99, p. 122) - 4 Stars (out of 5) -"Gloriously hard as the album is, you can't miss Metallica's good natured side coming through."
  • Entertainment Weekly (12/18/98, p. 84) - "We'll have to wait until Metallica's next 'proper' album to find out if this trip to the garage recharges their batteries. Still, all things considered, Garage Inc. is an intermittently exhilarating joyride." - Rating: B-
  • CMJ (12/21/98, p. 29) - "Those who still relate to the adolescent angst of the 'Metallicas' earliest days will find plenty to like on Garage Inc."
