7. ‘Wherever I May Roam.’
‘What I may roam’ is a track from the same black album that is slow and meditative. The song rises to position 80 on the ‘Billboard Hot 100′ songs, and that shows its ability to perform even better. Young fans recognize the band with the track, and it is what keeps them loving the Metallica band. ‘Carved upon my stone, my body lie but still I roam.’ ‘Wherever I may wander, wherever I may roam.’
6. ‘Welcome Home (Sanitarium)
One of the group’s best song that is unfortunate to obtain a single release is ‘Welcome Home (Sanitarium).’ The musicians base the song on one classical novel called ‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.’ Both the book and the song talk about a person locked in an asylum without sufficient reasons. ‘Welcome to where time still stands.’ ‘Sanitarium, leave me be.’ ‘Sanitarium just leave me alone.’ ‘No locked doors, no windows barred.’ This is one of the Metallica Top 10 Songs of All Time till 2017.
5. ‘Seek and Destroy.’
‘See and Destroy’ is the first track that the Metallica record in a studio and they place it on the ‘Kill “Em All’ album. The song is always used by the group to close concerts, perhaps to allow it’s sweetness remain in the minds of the fans. Many people say that the song encourages violence and that it is violent in many ways. However, the fact is that the track is about the intention to kill, not killing in the real sense. ‘Searching, seek and destroy.’

The group sings a track that contains suicidal feelings, something that causes a lot of controversy after the release. However, it later turns out that the group meant overcoming the suicidal feelings, not subscribing or succumbing to them. ‘Life, it seems will fade away.’ ‘Nothing matters, no one else.’
2. ‘For Whom the Bell Tolls.’
The song emanates from the ‘Ride the Lightning’ album, and it is based on Hemingway Ernest’s novel that talks about honor and modern warfare. The song is written by Burton Cliff, something he did before joining the band, and it is one of the group’s successes until today. ‘Now they see what will be, blinded eyes to see.’ ‘For whom the bell tolls.’ ‘Time marches on.’ ‘For whom the bell tolls.’
‘One’ is most likely the only actual song that the band recorded. The song is contained in the ‘And Justice for All’ album, released in 1989. The song plays for over seven minutes, and it is a story about a soldier who returns from the battlefield being deaf, blind, mute and immobile as he lost his limbs. The soldier lies in a coma as the brains continued working, waiting for his death. The track peaks at position 35 on the ‘Billboard Hot 100′. ‘One’ is one of the most incredible songs in the entire metal history.
