"1,320'" as written by and Dave Mustaine....
Grinding my teeth, white knuckles grasp at the wheel
I rush from an avalanche of adrenaline, it's all that I feel
As quick as a bolt of lightning, a rocket ride in a bucket seat
It doesn't get any better than this, it just feeds my need for speed

Supercharged, strapped in and screaming
Fire spiting from the pipes
A burnout by the flame throwing fury
8, 000 horses ignite
Full throttle, hit the ground running
With a tank full of nitro
And it's 1, 320' to go to the finish line

My hands hold tight, a fire breathing stampede
I fall into a trance, hold my breath till the light turns green
In a cloud of nitro methane, melting rubber, I say my prayers
Man and machine accelerate and I vanish in thin air

Supercharged, strapped in and screaming
Fire spiting from the pipes
A burnout by the flame throwing fury
8, 000 horses ignite
Full throttle, hit the ground running
With a tank full of nitro
And it's 1, 320' to go to the finish line

    General CommentACE SONG. Can't wait for September 15!

    Pretty obvious that this song is about drag racing.

    Song MeaningLike Akaneon pointed out, this song is about Dave Mustaine's interest in funny car racing. I would break it down, but the song is pretty self explanatory. And for those who don't know, drag races are on a quarter mile strip. 5,280 feet = 1 mile, divided by 4 = 1,320 feet (quarter mile).

    General CommentI have to admit, the first time I heard the intro to this song I thought it was the Vulcan Cannon from an A10 Thunderbolt. The sound has an uncanny resemblance.

    Awesome song, not quite as epic as DP's Highway Star, but still an awesome song about motor racing!

    General Commentthis song is about a girl whos husband disappeared. She finds him with another woman and ends up killing both. the couple had 13 gunshot wounds and 20 stab wounds hence the title 1320.
