According to The Pulse Of Radio, it was 25 years ago this month that Metallica released its epic third studio album, "Master Of Puppets". The disc was released on March 3, 1986 and was produced by Flemming Rasmussen, who also produced 1984's "Ride The Lightning" and 1988's "...And Justice For All" for the band. In an interview with Phoenix New Times, Rasmussen was asked if he knew the album was special while he was working on it. He replied, "Oh yes. Right from the demos, we pretty much knew this was gonna be a killer album. I think we all felt that this was gonna be the best Metallica album yet, as we had a bunch of really strong songs. Even the instrumentals were awesome."

"Master Of Puppets" was the last album to feature bassist Cliff Burton, who died in a tour bus crash in September 1986 and was replaced by Jason Newsted. Rasmussen said about Burton, "He was surely one of a kind, and even though Jason is a great bass player, it was impossible to fill out Cliff's shoes."

Many fans consider "Master Of Puppets" Metallica's greatest album, which the band itself acknowledged when it played the record in its entirety on a summer 2006 tour of Europe. The Pulse Of Radio asked frontman James Hetfield if the band would ever like to play another album in its entirety in concert. "It's pretty important that the fan be involved in that, you know," he said. "It was more of a fan's asking for that than us wanting to do it. You know, that was a pretty important album in our career, so pretty historic for a lot of people and that made sense. But as far as, you know -- I'd love to play any and every one of them, but you know, it does really come down to the fans really holding that dear to their heart or not."

"Master Of Puppets" was Metallica's first gold album, for sales of more than half a million copies. Many songs from the disc, including "Welcome Home (Sanitarium)", "Battery", "Leper Messiah" and the title track are still part of the band's live set to this day.

Apparently they don't listen to a wide variety of metal at Gibson. Black Sabbath and artists somehow connected to them make up 1/5 of the list.
Black Sabbath (6) + Ozzy (1) + Dio (1) + Rainbow (2) = 10

7 entries for Judas Priest and 6 for Iron Maiden. And! 2 entries for Van Halen, a non-metal band.

"Best" is such a subjective thing but it does get you thinking. I'm pretty sure I have every song on the list except "Freak On A Leash." I tried to listen to Korn but they never did it for me.

Def Leppard, Rainbow, and Van Halen aren't even heavy metal IMO. How does Twisted Sister's most lame song ever make the list??? 'We're Not Gonna Take It' is like a pop song compared to their earlier stuff. They should have chosen something like, 'Under The Blade', 'What You Don't Know', 'Shoot Em Down' or 'Destroyer' from their first album.

i have to agree about that being one of the worst twisted sister tunes. under the blade is their best album and each album after that gets a little worse

43. "Run with the Wolf" - Rainbow
47. "Beyond the Realms of Death" - Judas Priest


There's a couple of deep cuts for ya! I'd take me some "Light in the Black" instead, but I like the effort.

No doubt.. That disc SMOKES!
Too bad they killed it when they remastered it.
Man I wish I could find the original release

nice. i need some mad money at the end of may. only thing is it doesn't state if its the original mix or the 1985 mix


edit: it appears to be the original mix because "i'll never grow up now" is missing and that was added on the 1985 mix
