* OncePerEpisode: "Are you alive? How does it feel to be alive?", usually said by James before the solo to "Battery" or "Fight Fire with Fire". After the release of Hardwired… to Self‐Destruct he began asking the questions, followed by his own answer "If you want to live forever, then first you must dieee.", before playing the very fitting "Now That We're Dead".

* LongRunnerLineup: As much as Jason was the New Guy for 14 years, his tenure is the longest of the band without changing members so far (14 years). Right behind is the Trujillo line-up, since 2003. Cliff likely would have stayed longer were it not for his tragic death.

* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: Every song in the 80's ranged from 6 ("Fade to Black") to 9 ("Battery", "Disposable Heroes"). The Black Album's songs are mostly between 6-8, with "The Unforgiven" around a 4 and "Nothing Else Matters" at a 3. The ''Load''s were 6 and 7, with some 2-4s in there as ballads, and a couple songs (such as "Fuel" and "Wasting My Hate") bordering on 8. "Hero of the Day" has arguably the widest spread of any Metallica song, from about 2 on the softest parts to 8 on the hardest. ''St. Anger'', ''Death Magnetic'', and ''Beyond Magnetic'' are back to mostly 6-9 range, while ''Lulu'' literally hits everything from 1 to at least 8.

** ''Hardwired'' has the song "Murder One", named after Lemmy's amplifier, and [[SongOfSongTitle filled with references to]] Music/{{Motorhead}} to honor the recently departed frontman.



* WorkingTitle: "Until It Sleeps" was "Fobd" as they found it similar to Music/{{Soundgarden}}'s "Fell On Black Days". And ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Metallica_demos#Demo_Magnetic Demo Magnetic]]'' reveals some amusing ones ("Hi Guy", "German Soup", "Gymbag"), which apart from "UN3" for "The Unforgiven III" are all unrelated to the end result.



** ''Hardwired...to Self-Destruct'' and ''St. Anger'' both make extensive use of this trope, as well. After the first track, not a single track on ''Hardwired'' is less than five minutes long, and all but three are longer than six, with "Halo on Fire", the longest, topping out at over eight. And of course, the album itself is seventy-seven and a half minutes long. The bonus disc isn't as consistent an employer of this trope, but the longest track, the Ronnie James Dio medley, is over nine minutes long, and several other songs top the six-minute mark. As for ''St. Anger'', every song tops the five-minute long mark and six of them top seven ("All Within My Hands", the longest track, is nearly nine minutes long).
* ForDoomTheBellTolls: "For Whom the Bell Tolls", obviously.
