Battery (Hetfield/Ulrich)

Although this song would be considered as "thrashy", Metallica tried to move away from being known mearly as a speed thrash metal act by this album.

Master of Puppets

The song live:
Before the release of the black "Metallica" album it was the opener to Metallica's concerts and was the first hit out of three more off of the "Master of Puppets" album. It is still a fixed part of Metallica's live show.

The tribute:
The song "Battery" is an indirect tribute to the "Old Waldorf Club" in San Francisco on Battery street.

The subject matter:
The song is about a battery in the sense of beating each other up.

James once said: "There's a good and a bad side of a battery. We were very good at the negative."
