The first time James Hetfield played guitar was in middle school, when he met Ron McGovney.
Ulrich’s friend Ron Quintana was brainstorming names for a fanzine and had considered MetalMania or Metallica. Ulrich was interested in Metallica, so he suggested Quintana use MetalMania instead.
The band was formed in Los Angeles when Ulrich placed an advertisement in a Los Angeles newspaper, The Recycler, in 1991 calling out metal musicians.

Opening Lyrics:

So close, no matter how far
Couldn’t be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters
Never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words, I don’t just say
And nothing else matters
Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters
Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know

Master Of Puppets

Length: 8:35

Release: 2016

Opening Lyrics:

End of passion play
Crumbling away
I’m your source of self-destruction
Veins that pump with fear
Sucking darkeness clear
Leading on your death’s construction
Taste me, you will see
More is all you need
Dedicated to
How I’m killing you
Come crawling faster (faster)
Obey your master (master)
Your life burns faster (faster)
Obey your
Master of puppets, I’m pulling your strings

Release: 1988

Opening Lyrics:

I got somethin’ to say
I killed your baby today
And it doesn’t matter
Much to me
As long as it’s dead
I got somethin’ to say
I raped your mother today
And it doesn’t matter
Much to me
As long as she’s spread
Ooh, lovely death
Just waiting for your breath
Come, sweet death
One last caress

The Unforgiven

Length: 6:26

Release: 1991

Opening Lyrics:

New blood joins this Earth
And quickly he’s subdued
Through constant pained disgrace
The young boy learns their rules
With time the child draws in
This whipping boy done wrong
Deprived of all his thoughts
The young man struggles on and on, he’s known
Ooh, a vow unto his own
That never from this day
His will they’ll take away
What I’ve felt
What I’ve known
Never shined through in what I’ve shown
Never be
Never see
Won’t see what might have been
