Metallica – (Anesthesia) Pulling Teeth Lyrics 8 years ago
Not only was cliff a legendary bass player but he had the best background in musical theory out of all of the members of metallica (past or present). He also came up with a few solos for kirk. "Sanitarium comes to mind". And personally I haven't seen a bass player (who plays with his fingers and not a pick) that can fly like that! Incredible! RIP Cliff. You are missed...

Metallica – Tuesday's Gone (Lynyrd Skynyrd cover) Lyrics 8 years ago
these songs to try and one up the bands that originally wrote them. They covered them out of respect, to honor the bands. That being said, I am a HUGE metallica fan but I think the original version of the song was better. Don't get me wrong though. I've definitely listened to the metallica version more. ;p

This was an incredible cover out of respect for James Hetfield's favorite band growing up. Metallica did not cover

Metallica – Broken, Beat & Scarred Lyrics 8 years ago
Cliff's death, drug abuse, alcoholism, James's family losses to cancer, Jason's departure Napster backlash, loss of some of the original fan-base due to "selling out"...(they have not sold out, however all of they're concerts have ;p)...the lyrics say it all. "You rise, you fall, you're down then you rise again. What don't kill ya make ya more strong. Ups and downs, ins and outs, rises and falls, Metallica is back to kick some ass with the heavy and earth-shaking masterpiece that is DEATH MAGNETIC!

Metallica – Prince Charming Lyrics 8 years ago
I just can't help but to see these lyrics as an ironic twist of the typical "bad boy" image portrayed by many teenagers and young adults. I could be way off but bear with me...As a college student i have dealt with many many immature high school burn outs and delinquents. Their idea of having fun seems to be causing trouble and bragging about it. They want everyone to know how cool they are for the amount of weed they smoke or fights they got into or how much they drink or things they've stolen. I feel like James may have put an ironic twist into the lyrics "hey ma, hey ma look it's me" as in, clearly when you cause that much trouble and brag about it you want the world to know, as if they want those people to have some respect for them or be proud of them. James satirizes this situation in his lyrics. If you want the world to know how "cool" you are, why keep it from your parents? Basically he is symbolizing the hyporcricy of young adults. "Hey ma, Hey ma look it's me.".....aren't you proud? Everyone else seems to be...

Blue Öyster Cult – Astronomy Lyrics 8 years ago
I don't know why everyone has to be immature about which song (BOC original or Metallica cover) is better. Both are incredibly legendary bands. Neither of them suck. I really get irritated when someone says a band sucks when they listen to just one of they're songs half of the way through with a previously existing bias and immediately say they suck. If either band sucked none of you would have ever heard of them and this debate would not be taking place. Both were incredible versions. Personally I prefer the metallica version to the original. I think james's powerful voice, james's and kirk's arguably heavier guitar, and lars's heavier drums add another dimension to the song. That being said I would not mind listening to either version multiple times on multiple occasions. Great song.
