1: This was the 115th show on the World Magnetic Tour and the 87th performance in 2009. | This was the first show of a two-night stint at New York’s famous Madison Square Garden.
2: Lars was always nervous on stage, so he'd play faster and faster. Nobody wanted to wimp out and tell him that he was playing too fast. We just figured, 'Hell, we'll just play faster too
3: Take a look to the sky just before you die, it's the last time you'll
4: The main riff for 'SandMan' was just something I wrote one night. Sold Out? Sure we've sold out, last tour we sold out almost everywhere we played
5: I'd rather regret doing something than not doing something.
6: Things are so deep and people are always trying to read shit into things that real simple. Some people try and tell you what the songs are about and it bores me to death.
7: Kill ‘Em All (2 songs), Ride the Lightning (2 songs), Master of Puppets (1 song), ...And Justice for All (1 song), The Black Album (4 songs), Garage, Inc. (2 songs), and Death Magnetic (6 songs) | Metallica performed 18 songs tonight from 7 different albums:
9: We formed this band when we were 18-19, we couldn't play... We were just like 'Let's get together and play some cover songs, drink some vodka...' a year and a half later we were touring the world, releasing records.
10: No rules but Metallica rules," says Jaymz summing up the band's mood perfectly." Here it is, black sleeve, black logo, SCREW you
11: Metallica is the world to me - it always has been, and that's not going to change. I'm married to Metallica
12: Metallica first performed in the New York area (Staten Island, NY) on April 8, 1983 during the band’s early club days. It was Dave Mustaine’s second to last show.
13: When a man lies, he murders some part of the world. These are the pale deaths which men miscall their lives. All this I cannot bear to witness any longer. Cannot the kingdom of salvation take me home?”
14: My guitars are my umbilical chord. They're directly wired into my head I don't think sucess has changed us as people at all. We are the same lunatics that we were when this band first got going. We never see ourselves as being on a higher level than our fans
15: The fans like the idea that we do what we want. It's not an act. Screw the record company and the beaten path. Without MTV or radio, we still have a huge underground following.
16: If you came here to see spandex, eye makeup, and the words ‘Ooh baby’ in every song, this ain’t the band. We came to bang some heads
17: Metallica played 10 songs for the first time at Madison Square Garden: That Was Just Your Life, The End of the Line, Holier Than Thou, Broken, Beat & Scarred, Cyanide, All Nightmare Long, The Day That Never Comes, Fight Fire With Fire, Helpless, and Whiplash
18: Authority pisses me off. I think everyone should be able to drink and get loud whenever they want.
19: Sabbath was everything that the 60's weren't. Their music was so cool because it was completely anti-hippie. I hated the Beatles, Jethro Tull, Love, and all that other happy shit
