This song never gets old,even though I seem to?
This song is about Cthulhu
One of the best ever
I love the thing that shouldn't be.it's got such a dark feel to it.
heavy as metal can be. big ol fat f**ker
At least James and Kirk didn't go full retard. Dave Mustaine is one crazy f**k!
Never gets old!!!! Love this shite
HP Lovecraft.
Any solo played by Kirk is a good solo, no matter how bad it is. (Yes you are probably had your mind blown away)
Terrible guitar solo
For such an awesome song
one of the raddest metal songs of all time

It's a Lovecraft quote
Stranger eons death may die. What in the hell that's suppose to mean I'll never know.

Eh this isn't nearly as good as their other stuff. Not awful. And Megadeth is just as good as old Metallica. Mustaine's songwriting skills are superior to Metallica's, that's hard to deny. But they both rock!
This song is based upon the H.P.Lovecraf t short story Shadow Over InnsMouth written in 1936.
Joker you got it wrong
Ride the lightning
Master of puppets
And justice for all
Cause cliff died during puppets tour
chklehead
I don't give a f**k.....Met a l l i c a filing rules
Lovecraft I think
Goldendeth how retarded are u compare careers!!
Dave Mustaine is a FAR superior guitar player/music i a n , than James or Kirk will ever be, forevermore destroying their musical aspirations.

Fair Metallica song
MLDAVE I totally agree. Iron Maiden is my favorite metal band, though.
Mldave you have it backwards is
1. Master of puppets
2. And justice for all
3. Ride the lightning
This s**t is f**kin clean, I don't know why f**kers complain that they've played it live a lot of concerts
So fucken heavy!!!
1. Ride the lightning
2. Master of puppets
3.And justice for all
Metallica for life!!

Great James hetfield
Well said Cliff Burton!
Kill Em All, hands down Metallica's best album. There work has almost made a linear slant down to total s**t, with ...And Justice For All being their last worthwhile album.
When Jason newsted come in with Metallica went to s**t
Finally a song they wrote... #slayerrules
Metallica Rocks ! the best band ever
Megadeth is overrated, maybe there better than new metallica and they stay true to there music, but when metallica was at there best with cliff, they more than blew megadeth away, I don't have anything against megadeth, it just sounds all the same to me
Cthulu not ktulu btdubs ktulu is just the spelling they used since its easier to connect to the sound
I agree proly w and justice getting the nod. But they all rule.
For best Metallica album I say there's a three way tie between ride the lightning, master of puppets and, and justice for all
This song is f**kin mean
Anyone with a open mind musically, who loves all music forms that are done well, knows this is metallicas best and is one of the all time greatest contribution s to ALL music.
Kool song from like back. In the wicked days smoking bud getting all f**ked up
Cliff 'em All!
Cliff forever!!!!! ! ! ! ! Cliff em all !!!!!!!!!
Ever true thrasher or anyone who listen's to Metallica knows that this isn't their best album. Their best album is their first album which is Kill'em All \m/
Masterpiece. Too many narrow minded, one way street dipshits have no respect for this music. This recording is a top 20 of all time for rock music. This album that is:D
This song is off of master of puppets. Those two call themselves liking metallica
Love this song. I love Metallica.
One is the BEST
Love this song. ........
