Metallica's Master of Pancakes (A Top Story)
The joke came about during a 1986 thrash tour of the UK when Metallica's Kirk Hammett and Cliff Burton had breakfast with Anthrax's Benante and Scott Ian. "We were just talking about stuff and I said, 'In Master of Puppets, just before the lead break comes in, James screams something out and I can never understand it. What is it?'," The drummer tells Examiner.com. "Cliff looked at Kirk and went, 'I don't even know.' We were ordering breakfast so Cliff said, 'I think he says 'pancakes' and we all started laughing.
"Every show after that, I was on the side of the stage watching and that part would come up, and Cliff would always look at me and mouth the word 'pancakes.'" - more on this story
