4. Metallica and Lou Reed
In 2011, the Velvet Underground frontman collaborated with the heavy metal legends on Lulu, an album based on two plays originally written by the German author Frank Wedekind. It's mainly made up of spoken word by Reed over the top of an instrumental track provided by Metallica and is not for the faint-hearted.
