The song "Wherever I May Roam" became a kind of hymn for the "Nowhere Else To Roam" tour.
For the "S&M" shows Kirk played an electric sitar for the intro of "Wherever I May Roam". Normally the sitar intro is just played from a tape for the live shows.
James played the intro with a sitar which is an Indian folk instrument.
Lars used some further percussion and electronic sound effects for enriching the sound of the background.
The music video was premiered by Mtv on 21st May 1992 and was directed by Adam Dubin and Wayne Isham who also directed the "Enter Sandman" video.
Apocalyptica covered it for their debut album in 1996.
Song Interpretation (assumed):
This song is about the band being on tour and leaving their girlfriends, friends, and loved
ones behind. In the lyrics the band is compared with a roaming vagabond whose soul keeps on
roaming even after his death. It could also be about having or maybe even missing the freedom.
