    Where is Orion? Learning that song taught me so much about music and the bass.

  2. Geoff

    Where’s Anesthesia?

    Wow-the lack of classic Cliff is FAIL.

  4. Francisco Quirarte

    missing Orion

  5. Francisco Quirarte

    I think this article should be redone by the true people who know metallica.

    Jump in the Fire may be the simplest bass line Cliff plays. I mean it’s cool but not very interesting. How about No Remorse, Four Horsemen, or Am I Evil? off of that album. For Newsted, how about something off of Garage Days like Helpless or Crash Course in Brain Surgery?

  7. I song. from the bass player that opened metallica into writing intricate songs. disappointing.

  8. Whoever put this together has a skewed definition of “classic”.
