A classic.

A very, very fast classic.

When we launched, we intentionally didn't exhaust our back catalog. This has given us a chance to go back later, to post some total classics ex post facto. Pretty much everything on the Metallica black album qualifies as a total classic.

You may or may not be a huge Metallica fan - if you are, you already love this song. You might not even be a major consumer of heavy metal - but if you do, you've heard this one. But probably everyone with a serious workout playlist should give Metallica a chance. The artistry of this one - it's positively symphonic - is great; and, as always, the energy is unrivalled.

Swing that waist-length hair around. And get thrashed.

Depending on your point of view, the apotheosis of Metallica was either Master of Puppets, And Justice For All..., or the black album. Taking the middle one there as the mid-point, and taking this song as the high point of that album, which one should, we may have the very high point of Metallica here.
