The Unforgiven

What a song! It's an all-time classic, and it's one of those songs that seems to tell a story, or tell a life lesson.  An emotional song, but damn is it good.  Awesome solo section at the end as well, which Kirk nails in this video from the Mexico showin 2009.

Disposable Heroes

Definitely one of the heavier Metallica songs.  Fast-paced, with dark overtones throughout.  Not a song I tend to listen to often, I must admit, but it is an absolute cracker, and what a solo too!  This performance in particular was outstanding.

Whiskey in the Jar

A brillaint cover of Thin Lizzy's song.  Metallica absolutely own it, and the Irish crowd go wild.  I've sang this song many times during rock karaoke nights in pubs, and everyone sings along.  A real song to bring people together and start a party!

The Unforgiven II

What a song! It's a deep, emotional track, and I love it. I just can't understand why it has only been played live once... It's more of a ballad than a thrashy Metallica song, but I think it is excellent.  Here is the official music video, as the only live version, in my opinion, sucked.  Hope you like it as much as I do.

Welcome Home (Sanitarium)

In my opinion, a more 'hardcore' Metallica song, but it's up there as one of my favourites.  It's a dark song, but has a class solo at the end.  This is a great performance from the Belfast show of the World Magnetic Tour, in 2010.

The Day that Never Comes

One of the singles released from Death Magnetic, this is one of my favourite songs off of the new album.  Fast paced solo complemented by more calm verses.  Great guitar work and drums.  An awesome performance as well.  Nimes must be an amazing venue to play in, it looks beautiful.

The Four Horsemen

From Kill Em' All, an epic song with a great rhythm, The Four Horsemen is a great track to get the crowd going.  Brilliant tune!  Also, a pretty beasting solo.
