Metallica - Seek & Destroy.
Check out my profile for all the other songs:)
"Seek & Destroy" is the ninth track on Metallica's 1983 album Kill 'Em All. It was written by James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich. The song has been frequently played in concerts over the years since its live debut in 1982.
The song has become a fan favorite and has been played at virtually every Metallica concert since the band's inception. It is sometimes played as a closing number for their live performances, with James often asking the audience to sing along with him when he shouts, "Seek and destroy!"
The most memorable renditions of the song occurred during the years 1991, 1992 and 1993 for the Wherever We May Roam Tour. Here Seek & Destroy was played with Jason Newsted singing vocals, however at the end of the song the band would commence in a jam for a few minutes until James took the microphone and continually had the audience sing the lines "Seek and destroy!" Hetfield also went to the edge of the barriers holding off the crowd and got them to sing the lines individually. The song length went from an average of 7 minutes to an average of 16 minutes for the elongated concert version of the Black Album tour. On the band's 2007 Sick of the Studio '07 tour it became a regular closing song at the end of the band's set.
The song is about feeling the urge to kill. It can be inferred from the lyrics that it's not senseless killing but as revenge to someone that very much deserved it. It is said to be heavily influenced by the Diamond Head song "Dead Reckoning".
A performance of the song with Cliff Burton on bass in 1985, is available on the DVD Cliff 'Em All. Newer live versions can also be found in the Live Shit box set (with Jason Newsted singing the lead vocal) and the Cunning Stunts DVD.
This was also the theme song of former WCW and current TNA wrestler Sting and A wrestler Cibernetico. In Sting's case, the song was a live recording from Woodstock '99.
Kirk Hammett has since confessed and apologized for the unusual pitch of the string bend which occurs at 3:46, during the solo, is in fact a mistake or "bum note".
During the documentary film about Metallica, Some Kind of Monster, the song is used when footage of the band down the years is shown highlighting the progression in the band's appearance and sound over time. In the book Metallica: This Monster Lives one of the film's directors said how initially they wanted to alter the footage so it flowed smoothly but soon noticed the value of showing the alteration in the band in each piece of footage.
The song has been covered by Chuck Billy, Jake E. Lee, Jimmy Bain, and Aynsley Dunbar for the album Metallic Assault: A Tribute to Metallica. The song has also been covered by thrash metal band Testament and instrumentally by Freaklabel as part of a tribute medley.
SEEK & DESTROY
We're scanning the scene in the city tonight
We're looking for you to start up a fight
There's an evil feeling in our brains
But it's nothing new, you know it drives us insane
Running, on our way
Hiding, you will pay
Dying, one thousand deaths
Running, on our way
Hiding, you will pay
Dying, one thousand deaths

Seek and destroy
There is no escape and that's for sure
This is the end, we won't take any more
Say goodbye to the world you live in
You have always been taking but now you're giving
Running, on our way
Hiding, you will pay
Dying, one thousand deaths
Running, on our way
Hiding, you will pay
Dying, one thousand deaths

Our brains are on fire with the feeling to kill
And it won't go away until our dreams are fulfilled
There is only one thing on our minds
Don't try running away, 'cause you're the one we will find
Running, on our way
Hiding, you will pay
Dying, one thousand deaths
Running, on our way
Hiding, you will pay
Dying, one thousand deaths
