30 Songs in 30 Days, Day 11 - A song from your favorite band

I gave y'all ample notice. I dropped several hints. I think I even outright said something like, "My favorite band is Metallica."

If you're still here, that must mean Metallica makes YOU as happy as they make ME.

Because I know that, to people who don't understand the music, it may just sound like angry angry sad yelling...but when I discovered it 25 years ago, I was 15 years old and it made sense to me. This music was all mine, the first band that I understood and I felt like they understood me.

I have quite a dilemma...what song to choose? Hmmm... because later on I'll have to choose a song from my favorite album which is, naturally, a Metallica album...soooo many factors here.

Okay then. I'm going with, the title track of their consensus best album Master of Puppets. 

Enjoy, I know I will!

(p.s. The video I picked is from when Metallica decided to record a CD with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra...It's called 'S&M', and it's GLORIOUS, WONDERFUL, BEAUTIFUL MUSIC they made together.)

(editor's note: there may be some language in this video, so it's not for the faint of heart, sorry:)

  4. I think all music has it's place. But I am talking about music here--not banging and random shrieking. As long as it's got a melody. =)

  6. Underappreciated band - seriously. As metal in general fades from collective memory, Metallica is the one band that will last.

    1. I so agree! It's funny, because I never did listen to other metal bands...I'm pretty eclectic with my tastes, and I find someone I like and they're my favorite thing. Metal isn't my genre, but Metallica IS.

    1. I know Pantera is on of the better metal bands out there and a lot of Metallica fans like them, but I couldn't tell you anything they sing, sorry! :(
      My tastes are just hit and miss all over the place...
