Metallica Fighting Fire With Fire

Metallica were one of my major adolescent musical influences. This is a live performance of Fight Fire With Fire from 1984's Ride The Lightning, and it really gives lie to some of the popular misconceptions about latter-day Metallica.

Firstly, Lars Ulrich is absolutely on form here, check out the double-bass in the coda. Ulrich has had a lot of shit for his form in recent years and a lot of it is at best unfair and at worst plain disrespectful. Lastly, James Hetfield can fucking shred. Enjoy!
