Just the other day I was re reading the editorial inside the Crown Jewels Booklet that was written by Matt Pinfield ... He Mentioned something about Metallicas Kirk Hammet saying just mentioning Queen brings him into the riff of Ogre Battle ... do ya think Metallica ever thought of covering Ogre Battle instead of Stone Cold Crazy ... and what is your opinion on Metallicas version of Stone Cold Crazy ... I personally liked it myself...i used to have the old cassette single of enter sandman .. and sad but true ..my copies both had stone cold crazy as a b-side ... i wonder if thats a rareity too ... any body care to comment on this?

I rather liked Metallica's version of Stone Cold Crazy.....(and it would have been cool to hear them do Ogre Battle, though)

You cant really consider their version of Stone Cold Crazy a rarity though, its on the 2-cd set Garage Inc......(which I, when it came out, bought the CENSORED version of, unknowingly! Ack....it just RUINS "So What" completely)

Metallica's Stone Cold Crazy cover was okay. The drumming kinda bothered me. However, Ogre Battle would be perfect for Metallica... what if they went ahead and did the lead into Fairy Feller's Master Stroke as well? Holy Crap! That (FFMS) would sound wonky.


Benny Faye because it sounds like Brian May.

I wasnt referring to Stone Cold Crazy by itself being a rarity , i have two different metallica singles both containing Stone Cold Crazy as the B-side , one single being Enter Sandman A-side , Stone Cold Crazy B-side , Sad but True A-side , Stone Cold Crazy B-Side. And Most definatly id be the first to buy A metallica done version of Ogre Battle if they ever decided to do a version of it.

Stone Cold Crazy is a masterpiece when performed by Queen. I wouldn't hear the Metallica version for anything in the world, even if you say it's good. I hate Metallica.


yes it was plain to see, yes it was meant to be...

Hate if you must , thats by your own choice there buddy. But meanwhile just like Queen , Metallica has made their millions. Ill say this much some of Metallicas stuff isnt that great and some of it is pretty hard to understand or comprehend. But in the end its pretty much the same with any group those who get it cherish the music forever.

Your loss!!
Let me tell you that sone cold crazy is a mesterpiece too, when performed by Metallica. Both versions rock, and of all the Queen versions i´ve heard this is by far the most powerfull (in my opinion).

Take care
