Ok here are few notes about this song!
As you propably know this song is by Metallica and is from their best
album to date "The Black Album". What you propably don't know is the
following:

Firstly, Metallica hardly play this song on their concerts. I have no
idea why though. My guess is that they only play their best 3-4 songs
from the  "Black Album" and those are the hits "Enter Sandman" "Sad But
True" "Nothing Else Matters" and "Wherever I May Roam". They Also play
"The Unforgiven" but no so often.

THe lyrics to this song are James' (Hetfield) favourite on this album.
Here's why: "My parents were in this christian sect long time before
they even met and were really into it. When my mother got cancer,
following her religion, she did not want to apply for medical treatement
and died. And I still feel responsible for her death as i could have
prevented it!" These are  the words of James himself.

Oh yeah..this was also the first song ever on the album to
be heard by the press!

Anyway...hope you like the story and shit. Have FUN!
