"Hit the Lights" as written by and Saloman....
Wow!

No life 'till leather
We're gonna kick some ass tonight
We got the metal madness
When our fans start screaming
It's right, well alright, yeah!
When we start to rock
We never want to stop again

Hit the lights
Hit the lights
Hit the lights

You know our fans are insane
We're gonna blow this place away
With volume higher
Than anything today, the only way, yeah!
When we start to rock
We never want to stop again

Hit the lights
Hit the lights
Hit the lights

With all our screaming
We are gonna rip right through your brain
We got the lethal power
It's causing you sweet pain, oh sweet pain, yeah!
When we start to rock
We never want to stop again

Hit the lights
Hit the lights
Hit the lights

    General CommentI can't believe nobody but 1 has commented about this song. The chorus riff is so sweet and the rest is so fast. Even on the first song showing their talent.

    General Commentthis is a really good song. metallica are a great band and they have recorded some great and some awful stuff. they're lyrics, however, are consistantly shite.

    General Commentwell, king nothing nailed it but there is also a little interesting part in this song

    "When we start to rock
    We never want to stop again" kinda like a band that will continue to rock and never stop what they are doing, no matter what happens (21 years since 1st album and going)

    General CommentThis song is powerful man, freakin the build up of the thrashy playing then bursts in to the main riff. It just makes you wish metallica still could do songs like these.
