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.

“Vans”

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
