So, this band used to have straws / did they all get their own straw / oh wait / it was a way to see who got first at thuh young dumb hot groupie :( - or was it to see who got the virgin of the week ? Or to see who got alone time backstage ? This is why I turned my back on rock n roll when this band was touring -

Fleming Rasmussen is by far the best producer in Metallica's history. This album was his crowning achievement.

Ok - this song name comes from a wAy of choosing someone to do something- first, you cut a handful of straws, all sizes, then, others have to pull one and in end, while concealing sizes , whoever has shortest straw is chosen one to do deed :)

I've held position of shortest straw drawn - but one can't go any lower and we can't suffer for ever- I will enjoy me being dethroned \^^|

I don't like this song. The riff is too simple for a 6 minute song, and James repeating the Shortest Straw isn't really entertaining .

I wonder how the 90s would have gone for metallica had they not worked with bob rock. I bet at the very least the black album would have been more like 80s metallica. Oh well still good tunes on the bob rock albums except st. Anger possibly the worst album ever by any artist. Death magnetic is cool but james' vocals are done. Metallica still rules though.

Progressive metal that paved the way or countless others. Too bad they dumbed their own music down after this album.
