Great Itunes Essentials

This list is a good start for new Metallica fans. Of course, every Metallica song is essential to hardcore fans, but these are the songs that not even naysayers could possibly dislike.
I consider these ten to be the "essentials":
"Master of Puppets"
"Creeping Death"
"Enter Sandman"
"Fade to Black"
"Seek and Destroy"
"For Whom the Bell Tolls"
"Sad But True"
"Welcome Home (Sanitarium)"
"Nothing Else Matters"


This is like the maxium essentials physically possible.
Die hard fans (me) "Need 'Em All".
My essentials are;
1. Master of Puppets (duh!)
2. Battery
3. Seek & Destroy
4. Creeping Death
5. All Nightmare Long
6. One
7. Trapped Under Ice
8. For Whom the Bell Tolls
9. (Anesthesia) Pulling Teeth (god bless Cliff Burton)
10. Orion
11. Enter Sandman
12. Damage Inc.
Fade to Black is good but not one of my favorites.
