Best Song From Band/Artist X

Brian and I a few years back started this dialogue of one of us bringing up a band name/artist and then both of us pontificating on the best song put forth by same. Because he is who he is, he always asked questions like, "Album?" and, "Year?" I pooh-poohed these - don't leave space in my brain for such trivia.

But it might make kind of a fun weekly blog feature. So I start with naming this week's band as Metallica. In a couple of days I'll let you know my answer. But someone must comment first. Feel free to include a memory that said song invokes.

Depends on the rules. PERFORMED by Metallica? One. Best Metallica song? Sandman covered by Motorhead.

My favorite Metallica song is Battery. Followed closely by a song that isn't theres, but they do well - Breadfan.

Pleh - only two? I expected this one would be fun for everyone.

I'm not picky on who wrote the song. My favorite is Enter Sandman - it's the 4 on the iTunes rating while there are about 15 3s (meaning like well enough to play).

I can't wait to sing to my son:

"Hush little baby, don't say a word"
"And nevermind that noise you heard"
"It's just the beast under your bed"
"In your closet, in your head."

That should fix all nightmares, no?

My fave is Welcome Home (Sanitarium) although I have to agree with Michele - their Breadfan cover is great!
