Kerrang!: THE 15 BEST METALLICA COVERS
Since forming in 1981, Metallica have worn their influences on their sleeve. Indeed, their early show setlists were populated by their British metal heroes Blitzkrieg, Diamond Head, Savage and Sweet Savage – their first show featured no less than seven covers and two original compositions. Over the course of their career, the band have recorded myriad covers for single B-sides, The $5.98 E.P.: Garage Days Re-Revisited, the Garage Inc. compilation and limited edition EPs.
