(hennemusic) Metallica's Best Song Selected By Fans was a top 20 story of June 2020: Metallica fans have chosen their favorite song by the band in a month-long online vote. Launched last month, the Some Kinda Bracket tournament pitted 64 tunes against each other in daily matchups as fans whittled the catalog down to two songs: the title track to 1986's "Master Of Puppets" and their 1988 single, "One."
"The people have spoken and single song stands alone above the rest," says Metallica. "Your champion is ~ drum roll please ~ 'MASTER OF PUPPETS!'
"Along the way it defeated "Dyers Eve," "Atlas, Rise!," "Ride The Lightning," "Sad But True," "Fade To Black," and "One" in head to head match-ups... no wonder that thing is in the Library of Congress! Thanks for playing along with us! #ObeyYourMaster #SomeKindOfBracket"
The group's major label debut, "Master Of Puppets" became thrash metal's first platinum album on its way to US sales of more than 6 million copies. Read more and stream the song here.
