  • This was written by Budgie, a '70s Welsh band that was one of the first "metal" bands like Black Sabbath. Metallica's drummer, Lars Ulrich, is a big fan of Budgie and visits them when he's in the UK. Metallica also covered Budgie's 1971 song "Crash Course in Brain Surgery." >>

  • Krishen from Mount Laurel, NjA fine cover, but Budgie's original version still kicks it to high hell. It truly is a shame that they never really found fame the way Black Sabbath did.
  • Christian from Colorado Springs, CoBreadfan was the B-side to the Eye of the Beholder "45. The song is about music industry greed.
  • Jon from Grand Forks, NdYup, b-side to HofS, but also on garage. Problem is, most people think of the better selling 2nd cover album, Re-Revisited
  • Nick from Paramus, NjMetallica originally released this in September 1988 as one of the B-sides to the "Harvester of Sorrow" single. The other B-side was "The Prince", also later appeared on the Garage Inc. album.
  • Nick from Paramus, NjBreadfan wasn't on "Garage Days", it was released as a B-side to one of their singles, I forget which one, I'll check back later.
