Lars Ulrich Reveals His Least Favorite Metallica Song
1K Shares

Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich was interviewed by Vulture and was asked what his least favorite Metallica song was. He would go on to name a track from “…And Justice for All,” the band’s fourth studio album that was released in 1988.

There’s a song called “Eye of the Beholder” on the “Justice” album. Wherever I hear that song, it sounds kind of like, I guess we don’t want to be super-disrespectful to it, but it sounds really forced. It sounds like you put a square peg in a round hole. It sounds like it’s got two different tempos. There’s kind of a 4/4 feel in the intro and on the verses, and then I think the choruses are more like in a waltz tempo. It literally sounds like two different worlds rubbing up against each other. It sounds very awkward to me. I’m not a huge fan of that song. Lars Ulrich

“Eye of the Beholder” was part of Metallica’s setlist in 1988 and 1989, but since then hasn’t been performed live except as part of a medley. If you haven’t heard the song or want a refresher, you can listen to it below and judge for yourself if Ulrich made the right choice.
