Hear METALLICA At Their Finest With "The Shortest Straw" Demo

Posted by on September 28, 2018 at 1:02 pm

I am really enjoying these looks back at late-80s Metallica. While Cliff may have been gone, and that, of course, sucked, it was still Metallica at the height of their ascension, just killing it on all cylinders.

Today, they unveiled an early demo of what would become "The Shortest Straw" on …And Justice For All, and of course it sounds incredible!

This demo was  recorded in drummer Lars Ulrich‘s garage in El Cerrito, CA in December of 1987. Perhaps if you listen really intently, you could hear his dad practicing tennis in the background. (That one's a joke, folks.)
