Late last month, Lars Ulrich told us that Metallica was into the "fourth inning" of their next album. "We're going through the grind," he said. "We're in there doing riffs and putting them into songs. We don't really write one song and then show up the next day and do another one. We just work on riffs and sections, connecting riffs and tempos and moods."

Now we have a question for you: What is your single favorite Metallica song? Feel free to go for a monster hit like "Enter Sandman" and "One," a fan favorite like "Seek and Destroy" and "Hit The Lights" or a super deep cut like "The Frayed Ends of Sanity" or "Devil's Dance." Pick for any Metallica song you want, just please only vote once and only for a single song.

“Bird on a Wire”

Leonard Cohen | 1969

While living on the Greek island of Hydra, Cohen was battling a lingering depression when his girlfriend handed him a guitar and suggested he play something. After spotting a bird on a telephone wire, Cohen wrote this prayer-like song of guilt. First recorded by Judy Collins, it would be performed numerous times by artists incuding Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker and Rita Coolidge. "I'm always knocked out when I hear my songs covered or used in some situation," Cohen told Rolling Stone. "I've never gotten over the fact that people out there like my music."
