Battery Lyrics - Metallica

Review The Song (108)


Lashing out the action
Returning the reaction
Weak are ripped and torn away

Hypnotizing power
Crushing all that cower
Battery is here to stay

Smashing through the boundaries
Lunacy has found me
Cannot stop the battery

Pounding out aggression
Turns into obsession
Cannot kill the battery

Cannot kill the family
Battery is found in me

Thrashing all deceivers
Mashing non-believers
Never ending potency

Hungry violence seeker
Feeding off the weaker
Breeding on insanity

Smashing through the boundaries
Lunacy has found me
Cannot stop the battery

Pounding out aggression
Turns into obsession
Cannot kill the battery

Cannot kill the family
Battery is found in me

Circle of destruction
Hammer comes crushing
Powerhouse of energy

Whipping up a fury
Dominating flurry
We create the battery

Smashing through the boundaries
Lunacy has found me
Cannot stop the battery

Pounding out aggression
Turns into obsession
Cannot kill the battery

Cannot kill the family
Battery is found in me

Memory Lane | Reviewer: Sizzler | 8/18/13

One of Metallica's best songs, IMO, and as songwriters they are among the best ever.
And to the teenagers, your fights over who's better, Metallica or Megadeth and who's a true fan or not, who's too young or old to be a fan, etc., are so funny to me! I'm 39 and we didn't have message boards like this in '88 but the letters to the editor in Circus, Creem, Metal Edge, Hit Parader and other rock and metal magazines featured letters with literally the exact same arguments! Hysterical! So thanks for the trip down memory lane, and its good to know so many of the younger generation feel the same way about Metallica as we did back then.

People... | Reviewer: ItsSlendeh | 6/3/13

Metallica or Megadeth, I don't give a fuck. They both kick ass, and I'll fucking headbang to both of these bands. And Metallica vs Megadeth comments are just asking for more conflicts between the two bands, shut up.

guitar technique | Reviewer: newone 31 | 1/18/13

I like Metallica AND Megadeth these two bands are some sort of constant in my headphones everyday.
And they're Songbooks from the eigthies-albums are a constant practice in playing my guitar. For over a decade now.
Still i don't get the "sound" in battery, master of puppets, mechanix, rattlehead or numerous other examples, they're insane speed right.
In my head regarding use (and abuse :-) ) of a guitar these guys all are gods, which i really, really adore.
Their personal problems don't touch me.
I hope they keep on doing, what they do best.

i don't get you people! | Reviewer: Zak | 7/17/12

For those of you who say that one band (Metallica or Megadeath) is better than the other, that is your opinion. But for those of you who HATE one band but LOVE the other, YOU DON'T MAKE SENSE! BOTH bands rock! You CAN'T just hate ONE! Sure some songs are better than others but REALLY PEOPLE! CALM YOUR BALLS! You're acting like it's a contest between ONE DIRECTION and Metallica...and even IF you really feel that strongly against one, DON'T GO DISSING THEM ON STUFF ABOUT THEM! Because that just makes you an idiot The moral of the story is: Being a dick won't make yours any bigger!

trollin! | Reviewer: X | 12/22/11

OK can we atleast say pop is a untolerable genre of music? i im especially ashamed of canadian pop "stars" Justin Bieber and Seline Dion. my friends drive me insane with the friggin lmfao bullshit, id like to pump some of this into them, so, merry christmas bitches!

haha | Reviewer: d | 12/14/11

Megadeth is nothing when they are compared to Metallica. Dave is not as creative as james. this is pretty obvious if you listen the song 'Blackened' or 'Battery'. The intro of 'Blackened' is so fucking genious. Nobody can compose this except james. and battery riff was just fuckin awesome as if aliens had written the riff. and have you heard 'to live is to die'? no megadeth song is more perfect than this song

??? | Reviewer: Johnathan Duastishase | 11/30/11

I don't get the war between Metallica and Megadeth either, both bands are extremely shit and are so overrated for music that all sounds the same and both have crappy lead 'singers', if you can even call that shit singing.

great song, but..... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/23/11

This is one of my favourite metallica songs, its brilliant, but, and i realise that this will probably make a lot of people go off, but i love ensiferum's cover of it more. Just my opinion, but hey.

hello | Reviewer: hellllllo | 9/22/11

Metallica own any other metal band in existance, or used to.
bodom are my 2nd fav band but will never rival metallica, bodom are very skilled but doesnt always = the best music.
as some guy/gal said, they peaked in the late 80's, their last 2 albums are complete and utter trash

Age Old Debate | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/23/11

I've been listening to Metallica since I was 12... back in 1983. I find it funny that even after all these years people are still raging over the Metallica/Megadeth debate. They are both awesome bands though Mustaine may be a dick sometimes, but so is Lars. Dave was a junkie; Metallica were raging drunks. But really, who cares? Their music still rocks, though I have to admit I wasn't a fan of either band during the 90s. Both bands peaked at the end of the 80s. "Master of Puppets" is Metallica's greatest record to date. Nothing compares. "Rust in Peace" and "Peace Sells" are my fave Megadeth records, though they've had some killer singles over the years. Metallica, not so much. They let alcoholism and ego get the best of them since the Black Album (1991). Everything between "Load" and "Death Magnetic" was dreadful...

Rivalry solved | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/15/10

Megadeth and metallicaate kinda against each other because Dave mustaine was... Really affected by being kicked from the band so coldly. But Dave doesn't hate metallica anymore, and vice versa, (cept maybe Lars may still
Have some issues..)

The stupid fans just took it too far. Megadeth are great musicians, and so are metallica.

Why don't you like both?

Both metal.

Both hit hard.

Both influenced by their life and past instead of satanic crap like new metal bands ,and sex and drugs like all damn rappers ( who all suck)

Like both bands and get over yourselves, both bands are.

Meh | Reviewer: Hawk | 12/7/10

Very good song:Emotional and deep music and great lyrics. Metallica shows us the problems of tyranny. Mashing non-believers, Pounding out aggression
Turns into obsession...The man that lives only on agression ants a total control. Battery helps him in it. This enormous structure is unstoppable, people suffer because of it's power...

PS-Megadeth or Metallica? Both bands have great songs and lyrics. Stop arguing.
PPS-I am 15 years old, though your age is not the main thing.

Comparison | Reviewer: VK | 10/1/10

Which band is better? Metallica or Megadeth? The fans fight each other because they think their fav band is better, but that's for nothing. I like both Metallica and Megadeth. I used to compare whose guitar work's better, but now it doesn't really matter, the point is the meaning of their songs, and the head banging stuff. Every band got their special.

Metallica | Reviewer: louis | 9/28/10

i dont understand the thing between metallica and megadeth.they are both super good.this battle between metallica and megadeth probably started because both theyr name start with a "M".why not megadeth vs anthrax or metallica vs slayer?i love both of them and i dont compare them to each other because they have a small different kind of thrash metal.

WTF? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/16/10

I really like megadeth, really I do, I just hate megadeth comments WHEN I'M WATCHING THE LYRICS OF A FUCKIN METALLICA SONG It's like megadeth fans sit on their computers and look for metallica related new just to post shit bout metallica and bitch about how megadeth it's so much better, plus... I dont get the point of fighting about wich one is better, do you think someone will come out with such a great point that the world will reach a an agreement? I don't...
