Metallica Honored - Apr. 13, 2004
METALLICA To Be Honored At ASCAP's 21st Annual POP MUSIC AWARDS - Apr. 13, 2004

METALLICA will be honored by ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers) at the 21st annual Pop Music Awards held on May 18 at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Beverly Hills, California. Also honored will be singer-songwriter Jackson Browne. Over 600 leading songwriters, recording artists and music industry leaders are expected to gather at the black-tie gala to salute the songwriters and publishers of ASCAP's most performed songs of the year.

Established in 1914, ASCAP is the world's largest performing rights organization, with over 150,000 active composer, lyricist and music publisher members. ASCAP is committed to protecting the rights of its members by licensing and collecting royalties for the public performance of their copyrighted works, and then distributing these fees to the Society's members based on performances. ASCAP's repertory spans the entire spectrum of music — from pop to symphonic, rock to gospel, Latin to country to jazz, rhythm and blues, theater, film and television music. ASCAP's Board of Directors is made up solely of writers and publishers, elected by the membership.
