Metallica's upcoming IMAX 3D concert movieMetallica Through the Never, is shaping up to be an epic blowout that combines concert footage with narrative elements. In the film's trailer, the band blasted through their classic track "Master of Puppets" while riots raged both inside and outside the arena. Although you'll have to wait and see the rest of the ridiculousness the band has planned for the track, now you can take an exclusive first listen to the rendition of "Master of Puppets" that will appear on the soundtrack to Metallica Through the Never (which is available for pre-order here). Out September 24th at a two-disc set on Blackened Recordings, the soundtrack will also be available as a digital download and on 33 1/3 rpm vinyl, with limited-edition 45 rpm vinyl slated for release this fall.

Metallica Through the Never will open in IMAX 3D theaters on September 27th, with a wide release on October 4th.

“American Girl”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
