Fridge / Metallica

Go To

  • We all know that Megadeth would not be around without Metallica; Mustaine was in the latter first. Now, in 1992, Megadeth released "Countdown to Extinction", which featured the track "This Was My Life". Fast forward to 2008. Metallica's "Death Magnetic" opens with "That Was Just Your Life." I feel this is more than a coincidence.
"This Was My Life"
This was my life
This was my fate.
It was just another day
It was just another fight

"That Was Just Your Life"

Almost like your life
Almost like your endless fight
Curse, the day is long
Realize you don't belong.

How well does it match the trope?
