- KILL’EM ALL!
Metallica had barely finished writing the songs when they recorded it. Kirk Hammett had just a month to rework the guitar solos demoed by the forcibly ejected Dave Mustaine, who wrote several of the songs that appear on the album. Even the lyrics are brash and juvenile. (Kill ‘Em All was originally titled Metal Up Your Ass, but Megaforce convinced the band to change it.)
