Metallica – The Day That Never Comes (album: Death Magnetic 2008)

This song is by Metallica. This is from their latest album, It is such an awesome song! I’ve been a fan of Metallica since the age of 14, I know most of their old stuff not so much their latest releases. I did listen to this album and fell in love with this song.

I’ve been to only one Metallica show back in my own motherland, before they got rid of the awesome Jason Newsted. It was an unbelievable performance, one of the best shows I’ve seen so far. There were no special effects; it was pure real rockers in action playing their instruments. People got excited and they were all trying to get closer to the stage, my friends and I got completely suffocated trying to get near the stage as well but it was worth dying for! The thing I remember the most is that an hour before the show there were 2 half naked girls that created quite a commotion and thousands of boys just circled them, I saw the circle thinking that maybe the band decided to show up early and mixed up with the crowd, It was quite a disappointment to see a bunch of horny guys around these naked girls. Another thing that happened is a lot of people fainted because people were pushing each other trying to reach the stage. One of the guys that fainted was a guy that was from my town , this guy was the biggest guy I’ve ever seen in my life. He was fat and tall and I’m not sure what he was more – fat or tall, maybe a bit of both I guess! the place was so packed that this mountain guy just collapsed. That’s when I realized that being a small person is not too bad after all, and that’s how I’ve survived a Metallica show!  BTW my Hubby was in the same show , we missed another opportunity to meet earlier ; )Check out this amazing song…

Lyrics: The Day That Never Comes Lyrics

What’s this song about?

On August 4, 2008 (2008-08-04), in an MTV interview, the song lyrics were said to tackle the subject of forgiveness and resentment. The band's drummer Lars Ulrich claimed that the lyrics were inspired by a father-son relationship. The content of the video itself is of a different theme or setting that what the lyrics themselves were written about, a second interpretation. The video is said to be in a war background in comparison to the "One" video, but will not make any modern day references as in the war in Iraq and the Middle East (although the video depicts images of Middle East war in present day, they do not imply any political statement).
