    MemoryThis song is one of my favorites in this album, I love to listen it, but now that it reminds me the Columbine shooting, if you read it meticulously, it is like if those guys had this song in mind when they did that. Dang :/

    My OpinionGreat song for gettting me psyched. I usually listen this right before I go to play floorball with my friends. I usually play as a defender and I like to hit opponents hard by using my body (I'm 6 ft. 2 inches tall and weight 280 pounds.) as a weapon so my attitude is to seek and destory them.

    General CommentI like Metallica more for their great lyrics and complex musical arangements than the noisy music itself - although they ARE rockin'! ;) - but I would LOVE an instrumental version of this song.

    And I agree with everyone else, this is a song about violence and rivalries; I think gangs.

    General CommentIt is just about somebodies who want to start an unfounded fight. So that song is just written about the exact opposite of "Wasting My Hate".

    General CommentIts a wonder more ppl havent posted about this song, because this is one of the defining songs of the earlier developement of the metal genre. Kill Em All was basically them experimenting with and developing their sound, and it helped shape music along with other metal artists that followed as we know it today. Yes, Ozzy was the father of this genre, but Metallica clearly set a new bar, and pushed it even farther.

    General CommentThis song tells me one thing: Black Sabbath invented metal, but Metallica perfected it. (Yeah, that guy on MTV's Icon said it, but who cares, he's right!)
