Metallica formed in 1981 when drummer Lars Ulrich posted an advertisement in a local L.A. newspaper. Their early recordings featured fast thrash tempos, instrumentals, and a raw aggression that made them metal gods almost instantly. Here are the stories behind such songs as Ride the Lightning,¦ The Thing That Should Not Be, and The God That Failed - written about the death of lyricist James Hetfield's mother.
