Going wild on my favorite song! Fuck it all and Fucking no regrets!
Bill Drabik
Ed Crossan, I remember when they played this at the Spectrum when The Cult opened up. It was the first time I heard it live.
Magnus Glenn Bengtsson
I have been a Metallica fan since the early 90s. And this summer i decided to have a tattoo as a tribute to my all time favorite band. What do you Think? :)
Jen Bastian
I first seen Metallica in 1986... master of puppets tour with OZZY... damage incorporated was the third song played.... they are still kicking ass!
Ian Bodkin
Lee, from now on Rich has to read these lyrics at the beginning of every RP. No ifs, ands, or buts about it!
Thomas Beauregard
This is what really pisses me off Jay Kerner, they get Damage Inc, we get fuckin "Roam" , I'd love to see them play this live
Eugeniusz Freitag
....Epa.,co o tym myslisz..,im starsi tym bardziej usiluja byc szybsi.,mam wrazenie ze za chwile sie zaraz zapierdola na smierc.,coraz wiecej chaosu i coraz mniej techniki..,wiem ze to Metall ale wydaje mi sie ze schodza znowu do garazu.,tam chyba nawet byli duzo lepsi !?!?!?
Yves Brassard
I saw them in July, amazing! The only thing I wish I would hear is those little in between bits on the drums. Seems like Lars just skips them. I'm noticing it here, on bells, and a few others. Never the less, they were frickin incredible!
Tomas V-Busta
Dammit, I will get electric guitar and I'll start practicing again, as always I watch their videos it just reminds me I used to play their songs and solos and niw I can't really as Igot too slow and it makes me sad. Thanks to Metallica. You tough me how how to play the guitar
Gary Stephen Tomiuck
But they won't play Spit out the bone yet. Ugh Damage Inc. I think is a faster song and they nailed it. Lars would be sore after paying SOTB though. But makes take an intermission and have Robert or Kirk do a solo or a doodle or something while he rests lol
Joe Cercone
Fuck man! That's one of my favorites! But honestly, pretty much all metallica songs are my favorite lol! I've never heard this one live at a show so I hope when you return stateside for more shows we get that in the mix!!
Scott Newland
James's voice has gotten better, able to do the old stuff again. Wonder if not drinking has anything to do with that.
Jim Mckee
I really hope you guy's back back around and do an Arena tour, the Toronto show was great but i like them a bit smaller than those monster shows,
Drew McDonald
Drumming is well off. Not sure if it's the recording or what but sounds like there are notes missing and played a little behind the speed of the guitars.
Esther Kroes
Wauw, so great that I was there. 1 to remember! Although I never want to sit again! At Metallica you have to stand and \m/ Next time you Come to Holland must be on a festival in a Field!!!

Johnboy Ford Great album. Used to be a great band. They make music they don't like and would never listen too nowadays. Fucking joke.
Em Kay Dub I remember when that came out in high school. I thought “wow this is crazy shit.” Now I like crazy shit.
Michel Boot The 4 songs that beat M.o.P. , Fight fire with fire , Bell Tolls , Creeping Death , and the masterpiece , Call of Ktulu
Wayne Fivey Iron Maiden's Powerslave,Metallica's Master of Puppets and Slayer's Reign in Blood ..... three masterpieces right there,each album from start to finish.
Michael Liam Goggin I still give the edge to Ride the Lightning as my personal favorite Metallica album. This is a razor thin second place.

Check out Lars' most recent chat with Daniel P Carter on the Radio 1 Rock Show.

Allison Richardson What an amazing show tonight thank you guys. Panicked when you played seek and destroy so early I thought "this is going to be the shortest concert I have ever been to" 🤣🤣🤣🤣
Christopher Hunter Great show last night. People saying the sound was bad must have been drunk it was pretty clear for a heavy metal band in a arena. Hopefully we'll see a return to more old stuff next time though
Philip Brau Meister Morgan Thank You MetallicA! It’s been a while since a last saw you but you were just as good if not better than ever, you proved once again why you are the greatest band on planet, flawless live! Please come back again 🤘🏻

Andy Garcia Even though Lars is old. He’s still a badass. Metallica was the first cd I ever bought. I love these guys.
Reynaldo Martinez All nightmare long, dyers eve, the end of the line, and justice for all, trapped under ice, devils dance, hate train.
