Lars Ulrich stays cool in trendy shades -- The formerly wild Metallica drummer retains his edge with hip sunglasses

Sad but true: In the new rock doc ''Metallica: Some Kind of Monster,'' Lars Ulrich replaces hard partying with Napster bashing and groupie sex with group therapy. So how does the most famous heavy metal drummer -- turned -- sweats-wearing dad convince us he still rocks? Wearing NYC-based designer Robert Marc's titanium specs (which start at $325) is a start. Ulrich may not have bloodshot eyes to protect anymore, but at least his badass image is safe from fading to black.
