    I don’t really know what to say about this song. I think that the problem I’ve got with Metallica is that I knew them by the time of St Anger, and then, I went back in their discography. And I’ve got a love-hate affair with the way that Lars plays (he’s not one of my favorite drummers, but sometimes he’s quite original).

    @ soyuneik: & I quote, “Basically, the music industry is run by a bunch of old, money hungry, corporate sleezballs.” It’s in the “Death Penalty” thread. lol =:0 You called Mike old! =:0 :)~ lol

    HAHA @! Curiosa I didn’t mean everyone in the biz..wait, did I say that? Doodoo! I can’t find that post. Tell him I said “Heyyy” Annunciate it and say it in a deep voice for me. But in a girl voice pretending to sound like a dude. You’ll know what I mean if you try it. Damn, now I forgot what I came here for. Oh well…doododo-ti-do

    I love the new Metallica song! I’m glad you like it too. Now I just have to keep hoping they come to Vegas

  8. analoggirl on August 25, 2008 at 1:20 pm

    I think I’m the only LP fan who doesn’t like Metallica. lol

    Hey Mike. I’m doing an art project in school on contemporary artists, and I’m using you as my subject. I was wondering if you could tell me some of your influences and what artists you like. Thanks, Projekt Rev in Tampa was amazing!

  10. Curiosa on August 25, 2008 at 10:51 am

    @ soyuneik: hey a friend of mine in the music biz asked that I tell you that he is NOT old. lol

    I swear as soon as I start moving forward, shit gets that much harder. Last week was a barrage of ego battles, deaths, and chaotic obstacles. Extremely difficult, but I’m learning. I managed to successfully turn my Pc into a hybrid or what they call a hackintosh. lol. I have tinkered with macs here and there but have always been a PC gal. Today, I can say I am very impressed.So now, I have itunes without the extra poop. So, where was that one post you had up..hmm? Oh and Metallica…
    $360 a Ticket-Sanatarium Tour 2k3-I was so there. But in all honesty I paid that to see LP and Deftones

    Hahninator>> it scared me… xD

  15. lucky_cat on August 25, 2008 at 1:19 am

    I see the last concert is over now (until october). I hope you guys will have some free time now to enjoy it with your families and friends. You did an excellent job ! Thank you and all the other joined bands for the great Project Revolution : )

  16. Hahninator on August 24, 2008 at 9:46 pm

    Mike, if you think Rick Roll is funny, or any other online YouTube video….we over at LPLive found possibly THE funniest online video EVER. I swear we were on the floor laughing for 45 minutes at all the different variations of this. You HAVE to see this video, omg LOL http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kBVmfIUR1DA Angry German Kid

  17. Gemilla on August 24, 2008 at 9:21 pm

    I agree Chester’s right… Is impossible be seriously ever…

  18. BoC on August 24, 2008 at 8:54 pm

    Heck freakin’ yes. I’m so excited for this album! This song is pretty sweet. I love the beginning.

    I hope their album is so amazing that anyone who ever talked shit about st. anger, or Metallica in general, gets completely showed up.

  19. Gemilla on August 24, 2008 at 8:34 pm

    The group is so good Mike!! And u are a incredible person… Just help everyday ^^
    Kisses!!

  20. Lvix on August 24, 2008 at 3:33 pm

    Mike, i let the guy who posted this on youtube know that you posted it on your blog…
    He is one of the most happy guys of the world i think:d

  21. Curiosa on August 24, 2008 at 3:23 pm

    I don’t have time to listen 2 it all but from what I did hear it sounded good. Chester’s right, sometimes u can’t take yourself 2 seriously. lol Hope u guys r having fun here in TX.🙂 I’m not sure about H town but it rained here today. It’s stopped raining but it’s still wet outside. U guys b careful while ur traveling, it’s supposed 2 b wet these few days. I don’t know if u read what I posted on ur other blog but here’s the link. Please read it. Thanks. http://www.mikeshinoda.com/comments/all/ussupremecourt_ruling

    offtopic: you know, I’m really disappointed… I’m talking about your shoes. you forgot about girls… ok, I don’t claim that you should create a special edition for girls, I mean you should made other sizes of your shoes… I really wanted to buy them… but I can’t… I wanted to wear it, but I can’t…

    ontopic: I like Metallica. I like the song🙂 intro is good, whole song is good too. but it starts better than it ends. but moreover, I like it. ;]
    I’m glad that I was able to see them live. they’re amazing. contact with fans it’s the most important thing in live shows. you have it, they have it – that’s why I love live shows ^ ^ because of it😉

  23. Elizabethany on August 24, 2008 at 12:18 pm

    Just yesterday I was thinking about how they haven’t had much new stuff for a while. Thanks for posting it!

  24. Joanie_LP on August 24, 2008 at 12:12 pm

    intro’s great but as a whole, I don’t like it😦 maybe needs time to listen.

  25. ShadowerLiltani on August 24, 2008 at 10:50 am

    I’m sorry, but that picture is creepy. If that’s an album cover, then it’s a poor marketing tool.

  26. LPLUVER on August 24, 2008 at 10:09 am

    Sounds awsome, I cant wait for the new CD from Metallica, thanks for the update Mike.

  27. nikkiann0100 on August 24, 2008 at 9:27 am

    I like the song. I heard it on the radio the other day and its pretty cool. However, that is one long song. lol.

  28. cuz on August 24, 2008 at 9:04 am

    sounds interesting, gonna check the whole thing out!

  29. karolp on August 24, 2008 at 7:42 am

    I like it mike !! tanks for your post !! and just a ask, I don’t know why I’ll ask to you but, lets : do you saw some Olympic games ?

  30. Madlen on August 24, 2008 at 7:17 am

    The song is great…they were in Bulgaria on Juky 25th and unfortunately i wasn’t able to go…of course everyone says it was great:D

  31. PankakeMunky on August 24, 2008 at 7:09 am

    all i have to say is that the new metallica song is definitely different from their older works. it’s good to hear a new artistic change from metallica. but i have to mention one thing, that video that mike posted just scares the crap out of me after awhile when i’m listening to the song because of the cover of the single. its’ like those eyes follow you everywhere you go.

  32. psykobouliz on August 24, 2008 at 6:55 am

    i love this song!!

    hey btw here is something i just made, you surely recognize it! haha It’s far from being the exact copy of yours, cuz i was too lazy and i just wanted this skull at home for real!! haha

  33. lucky_cat on August 24, 2008 at 6:34 am

    At this sunday here in Berlin it´s raining since hours and hours … This song is perfect for that day, could be twice as long … doesn´t matter.
    “The sun will shine
    this I swear !”
    Thank you, Metallica !

  34. Bajannez on August 24, 2008 at 5:41 am

    What the hell are you guys talking about? That’s not a long intro. Only 20 seconds longer than No More Sorrow.

    I heard it yesterday, the chorus is really great. I think the song grows on me every time I hear it.

  35. Sammy on August 24, 2008 at 4:45 am

    this song is really great good job metallica!! thnx for posting mike🙂

  36. Shinizzle3 on August 24, 2008 at 4:03 am

    hey cool a birthday present for my dad =]]

  37. Daga280 on August 24, 2008 at 2:42 am

    hmmm yep-intro is as usually-loooong😛 but they r masters of intros xD song-damn thanxx Mike 4 sharing-i would never bump into this and i have it already on pc🙂

    but lyrics r interesting-you can understand it in two ways i think…. one is the ‘prison’ as ordinary place but on the other hand- your live’s prison where you must live and theres no way out… (gosh i sholud go back to the university-theres to many smart interpretations in my head right now so i schould use them immediately haha)🙂

    Nice Song! Hmm..but I think I have to hear it again..
    Thanks for sharing, Mike!

  39. Sandra89 on August 24, 2008 at 2:27 am

    I love this song so much! Can’t stop listening to it, ‘tallica are definitely back!

  40. axrinekey on August 24, 2008 at 2:25 am

    Nice song ;D
    And I thought Metallica doesn’t sing this genre ones😀

    ^____^
    long long very long intro and ending xD

  41. soyuneik on August 24, 2008 at 2:11 am

    hah. Its like you knew the perfect song for this stupid week. I kinda wanted to come here and say some stupid stuff like I normally do.,, sigh, Its just not in me.

  42. none13 on August 24, 2008 at 1:40 am

    ehm….I’m not listening to Metallica but…..it’s not bad! =)
    One question! Are all songs from Metallica so long?^^

  43. antje on August 24, 2008 at 1:22 am

    Hm, to be honest I am not sure about the song. I think I have to hear it again……. Thanks for sharing… Take care…

  44. I_B_Long on August 24, 2008 at 1:06 am

    i dunno. i usually dont mind their long intros (in enter sandman, its arguably the best part of the song) but this one sounds….noisy…i dunno, i tried turning it up real loud (as loud as i can with a toddler in the room) and it just didnt sound good. and im a huge metallica fan. something is just….off….
    im still gonna buy their new album (had it preordered months ago) and im definitely gonna give it a chance, but i am a little disappointed…
    thanks for sharing!

  45. MissNatalie1984 on August 23, 2008 at 11:44 pm

    hmmm, i don’t mind it, but like jhuryn, i wish the intro wasn’t so long – it’s kind of like “just get into the song already!”
    but then i guess, the long intros are almost like signature metallica.
    cheers for the post, Mike!

  46. Jhuryn on August 23, 2008 at 11:15 pm

    Definitely not a fan of the new Metallica song, Cleveland radio has been playing is practically ever hour for the past two days and I’m already over it. I wish they would try something different to mix things up. The intro is so freaking long! Why does every song have to be 7 mins long? Anyways, good luck with the end of the tour! You rock!

  48. YourConscience on August 23, 2008 at 11:04 pm

    “Manditory Metallica”… =) I like it. Thanks for sharing. =D Oh, and… Come back to the San Diego area soon… I’m supposed to meet you. Haha. Agh! And tomorrow is the last show of Projekt Rev, too, huh? Does that mean you guys are back in the studio…? =) Take care hun. (hugs)

  49. shinoda_me on August 23, 2008 at 10:58 pm
