After 28 years together, Metallica is amped for its induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on Saturday in Cleveland. "It's mind-blowing. It's very, very cool," drummer Lars Ulrich, 45, tells PEOPLE. "We're ready for this and we're psyched."
The legendary hard-rock band – which also includes singer James Hetfield, 45; guitarist Kirk Hammett, 46; and bassist Robert Trujillo, 44 – will join the ranks of only a handful heavy acts when they take the stage this weekend.
"Obviously they've been pretty selective with the harder rock bands that have gained entrance over the years," says Ulrich. "AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath – so that's very good company to be in."

Ja Rule had a bit of fun in New York City this week, attending the premiere of The Day After Tomorrow, chatting up the action-thriller's young star Jake Gyllenhaal, and later hitting trendy Spice Market for dinner. But we're told he was looking forward to returning to work in Toronto the next day, where he's filming Assault on Precinct 13 with Ethan Hawke, Laurence Fishburne, Drea de Matteo and John Leguizamo. "All of (the stars) are mostly in the same scenes, so they are a close-knit family," says a source. "They are always hanging out together. They eat together. They have a really good time together."
