James Hetfield looks pretty tore up in those pics.

I saw this sentence here from a comment. I searched on the web and it seems that it has many meanings. So, I am not sure which one is correct.

My best guess is this one from the Urban Dictionary:

to get very drunk and pass out.

What is the truly intended meaning in that sentence? Is it a common expression? Are there other usages/meaning for this phrase?

It might be very helpful if one can explain the origin and as to why the phrase is used this way. Thanks!

    That link has nothing to do w/James Hetfield photos, so it's hard to tell ... But it could mean: Messed up, haggard, worn out, old & busted, beat, has seen better days, past his prime, or maybe drunk/stoned. – mc01 Jun 29 '18 at 6:46
  • @mc01, did you see the reaction from Silbert Domina? He/she is the person who wrote the sentence. – dan Jun 29 '18 at 6:56
  • I have to assume he was trying to be funny by saying he thinks Chelsea Handler looks like James Hetfield. Neat. – mc01 Jun 29 '18 at 7:52
  • @mc01 maybe, he meant in those pictures, Chelsea Handler looks like (when) James Hatfield being tore up? Is that a joke about? – dan Jun 29 '18 at 8:46
