why all the bickering | Reviewer: levi | 1/27/10
i dont want to be one to get on here and fight over the internet like a bunch of idiots, but heres what i think....all the arguing is dumb thats not what this was for, i read someones post about how even if you did die they didnt know you blah blah...heres the thing you dont know the person your arguing with, so why bother arguing.....now heres what think about the song.....its a very good mellow song and when im upset about things i can listen to it and begin to feel much better, so as far as the song making you suicidal....no. and timmy quit trying to preech your religious bullshit, if this song makes you suicidal then maybe your pissed be the demons you call your god.
Religion? | Reviewer: Rob | 1/27/10
why is this even coming to religious terms. seriously???? get bent. i dont worship god, nor do i believe in an invisible man in the sky. i live my life by morals, not ancient text. i have two good legs to walk on, therefore, i do not require a crutch to help me get through life. im not trying to be abrasive. but consider this, everyone is free to live life how they will, that is the beauty of it all. Everyone always tries to tie everything into god, or some form of mediocre religious belief. yeah, timmy, metallica is really writing heavy/ thrash metal songs promoting the evil of satan and the glory of god. yeah right. im not here promoting atheist beliefs and saying "Dont read the bible" because its as practical to me as a picture of a glass of water to a man in the desert, there are some things people dont like to hear, and sometimes thats religion. People like to take something, and manipulate it into anything. you have taken this song and im sure its about drugs, and manipulated it into "Religious Terms" what a crock of shit. God wont judge what i've done, and no god is going to claim my soul, he doesnt exist, you are looking into a mirage in a desert and seeing an oasis, but really, it isnt there, pull your head out of your ass.
The real story. | Reviewer: Philip | 1/18/10
After a gig, Metallica's gear got stolen from backstage at the venue, I don't have the details. James and the band got depressed because they didn't have enough money to buy new gear and the stolen stuff wasn't found. So, naturally, they got depressed and James wrote these lyrics. And also considering James almost died while playing this song on stage, this one should get the most respect of the whole Metallica collection.
Idiotic | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/7/10
To Timmy, Metallica sang that song because Kirk and James felt suicidal at the time. So, plus: No self respecting person would kill themselves from a song. They think of suicide for a damn reason. Not because some one sang about it.That's my fav Metallica song.And I agree with someone who said before. Half of the population would be dead. So, yeah, they won't be there for you when your gonna die. What! You will when they die! Oh (boo hoo)( the next day) you won't even give a damn. Relax yourself. It a freakin song.
PS: Great Song!
suicide? | Reviewer: jla | 1/3/10
Defenitely a song to listen to before commiting suicide if you have suicidal thoughts. As for me Though I don't get those thoughts cause I don't have that problem. This song rocks. Anyone who has suicidal thoughts have serious problems such as bipolar or something similar like that. For people without those types of problems wanting to commit suicide just because of the lyrics of this song is just stupid. If this causes those thoughts then why hasn't metallica did it by now? That's just my opinion. Anyways this is one of my favs and has one of the best solos. If u commit suicide you will never hear this song again so don't be dumb.
WTF? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/1/10
If everyone had thoughts of suicide from listining to metal songs, half of the population would be dead. If you can't enjoy a good song, go ahead, kill yourself. I won't stop you. All you'll have to remember is, everyone will think you are the biggest idiot alive. Listen to the song. Enjoy it, and maybe do some air guitaring. Just don't be a f***king IDIOT! That goes to you, Timy.
tymil, | Reviewer: okay | 12/31/09
i know that youre pissed off by all thos comments, though
its nonsense that you say that about cancer. i have autism
and when i was 6, my mom got cancer. 8 years i was when she
died, and i listened to Metallica at that age. its obvious that
i was suicidal of Metallica. but they cant have go to me when
i live 3000 km further. think about that....
What the! | Reviewer: kayle | 12/15/09
ok people this song isn't suppose to make you want to go out and kill yourself...i think he is trying to sing "express" his emotions in hopes that someone would feel the same and maybe if you honestly feel the same way Metallica does then you might get comfort from the song knowing that your not the only one....
Timmy. | Reviewer: Nick | 11/14/09
Ok, I see what your thinking. However your wrong mate. Metallica isnt making songs to say "Hey kid kill yourself." Of course they wouldnt do that, because well they love there fans bro. The Song "Nothing Else Matters" Shows this. At first this song was about one of James Hetfields previous Girlfriends. However he forgot the whole thing and now metallica said "The song is for there fans." The Song master of puppets you were talking about? What do you think that means? Suicide? Death? Kill? No. The Song 'Master of Puppets' Is about how drugs can control your life and there YOUR master while you are the puppet. "The Master Of Puppets is pulling your strings, twisting your mind and smashing your dreams." It sais the master is pulling your strings twisting your mind and smashing your dreams. This shows how drugs have complete control of your life. It's far from a bad meaning. They say how drugs will totally control the fuck out of ya and if ya see this you should think twice before considering drugs. Anyway about you saying will they care about you? Think again bro. They have over millions and i mean MILLIONS of fans. If someone who killed themself over this song, its not like they wont care, its that they wont KNOW. They love there fans and if they found out about it, they wont try to do anyhting but theyll feal a little bad at least man.
Now Timmy, Just listen to what im saying and perhaps think on whats wrong with your comment.
Timmy, you just got even dumber. | Reviewer: Strazmoid | 11/12/09
Look mate, what kind of fuckind sadist of a fucking god would wish us to lead lives without pleasure?
YOu tell me you dumb fucking piece of shit.
You were Bipolar and ADHD.
ADHD? So am I, and so I have always been, Looong before I listened to metal.
Accepting christ may have healed you of your Bipolar, and given your life a focus, but Metallica has nothing to do with that.
Because you are a irrational person, I will explain this to you on irrational terms.
Your favourite preacher preaches fundamental bullshit on TV, or would, if you didn't beleive that TV is evil. Anyway, this man is insightful and may have an unparraeled comprehension of God and the universe.
Well, you die, from some tragedy or the next, by which he was somehow an indirect cause, and he hears about it. This man may feel terrible about it, it may sadden him deeply. However, he never KNEW you. He never had a personal relationship with you, you never met. If you had, you may have been friends with the man. Well, replace that man with a thrash metal band.
You love their music, you love their lyrics, you almost idolise them.
Well, they hear about your death. They feel terrible, they are saddened. What could they have done? They didn't know you, they are to you as the preacher could have done. People die all the time, and we can't always stop it.
I don't hate the church, I think that really, their current teachings are really quite positive, they promote love, peace, life, and in general, acceptance. Even if I can't find it in me to accept their religon totally, I love these aspects.
Anyway, back to your most recent post- You claim to have submitted an honest review, despite the fact that you did not mention Metallica's merit as an actual band- you just used this forum as an opportunity to preach your fundamentalist bullshit. Well, telling us that Metallica's music is demonic, and that Metallica is intrinsically evil is NOT an objective review.
I mean, a purely objective music review is almost impossible, seeing as music is used as an expression of emotion and everyone is bound to react differently to different tracks. Well, you have actually transcended from disliking a style, to pure unreason.
I can't actually be bothered finishing this post.
If you were of the world the world would love its own, but since you are not the world hates you John 15:19 | Reviewer: timy | 11/8/09
Wow I didn't realize that those few messages that I sent would leave such an impact. I thought that this site was supposed to be about rating the song, I can't believe you are still using it to criticize me, expecialy since my opion dosn't matter. I will quit leaving comments but I will leave you with this. You could give up all the rock n roll, metal, and pop,etc., and whatever else you wanted to and be the best person in the world, and that wouldn't make you a Christian. Completely yeilding your life to Christ, and putting your faith in Him to save you from your sins is what needs to take place. After you do that you will not want to listen to this junk and you will start desiring good instead of evil. I know from experience. I used to get depressed and suicidal, I thought I was bypolar, and I thought I had ADHD. I believe these are all just names for demon oppresion, because when I accepted Christ they all departed. And I can't help but share. If you ever get to the point were you don't think you can make it anymore. Go to kjvbible.net and read John 3:16
To Timmy | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/4/09
...speaking about "demons" and stuff, have you ever took the time to listen to this full album, and, to be more specific, the outrageous song entitled "Creeping Death"?, just for you to know, it was written by these "puppets", and you know what the main theme is?, the 10th plague of Egypt(kind of cool that your "demons" inspired them to write about that huh?), take a deep breath man!, chill out, for no one can claim you, nor your soul unless you walk their path, that's the very sense of the most precious gift we have: Free Will...
...'tallica all the way!!!...
(...and, yes, i'm a religious man, a very very religious one...)
Timy, Fucktard. | Reviewer: Strazmoid | 11/3/09
So music is a language, music is emotion.
Would Metallica care if I killed myself?
They probably wouldn't EVEN KNOW.
Now, if a classical fan kills himself, what does Mozart or Pachbel care? Nothing. They're dead.
If an Elton John follower decides to kill himself after listening to Tiny Dancer, will Elton John find out? Unlikely.
He just wants your money (ie, to make a living)
Money makes the world go round, money and music.
Everyone is after money- fact of life.
Music is just Metallica's form of self expression.
If they feel depressed they write depressing song, and if they feel elated they write happy songs.
Besides, killing your fanbase isn't exactly a viable method of creating revenue.
Besides, quite a lot of Metallica's songs reflect classic compositions.
Shut the fuck up, ignorant conservative retard.
You know fuck all, so go die in a hole.
(that was probs a troll neway...Day-um)
Timy sux | Reviewer: Strazmoid | 11/4/09
Oh btw, just putting this out there...
How are envy hate and STRIFE "works of the flesh"?
Honestly, I am a sinner by definition, though I don't drink, I don't smoke, I don't screw around, (though I'm sure most metalheads don't) I play Xbox... I have never had thoughts of suicide, as I doubt the exsistence of God, as I have done since I was ten years old.
Master of Puppets is not about Satan controlling Metallica- it's about cocaine.
To be honest, nowadays Metallica don't even lead self-destructive life styles. They are just ordinary people, with alot of money.
No band can care about their fans on a personal level, as they don't actually KNOW their fans on a personal level.
If you think Metallica should be an exception, and should personally attend the funeral of every single on of their fans that die, you are an idiot.
Although now I come to think of it, I am sorta touched that you made the attempt to save my mortal soul.
Just remember that the only sin that can't be forgiven is ignorance.
ut oh o.O | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/29/09
Yeh timy you're full of crap brah ^^
master of puppets is about being addicted to i think crack? i know its a drug not sure which, the puppet being you. And metallica happened to throw 50k into the pot in finding that girl that went missing at their concert, and oddly enough they dont know her...hmmm
