One of Metallica's speediest and most ferocious songs is "Dyers Eve," the closing track of 1988's …And Justice for All. And there's a reason why the song is completely over-the-top: James Hetfield vents throughout about childhood trauma he had experienced. As the singer-guitarist explained to Rolling Stone, "'Dyers Eve' portrays a child who's been sheltered from most of the outside world, as I was with this religion that my parents were involved in, Christian Science. That alienated me from a lot of the kids at school." Perhaps due to its challenging tempo, it was not until 2004 that Metallica played "Dyers Eve" in its entirety in concert.
