Metallica's early versions of "Hit The Lights"


Recommended Posts

Here is the very 1st version of "Hit The Lights" from the first Metal Massacre compilation way back in 1982. The band name was spelled incorrectly on the album (spelled Mettallica). Guitar solo was done by Llyod Grant. Band was only Hetfield and Ullrich at that time. James Hetfield hated the version so much, a new version with Dave Mustaine on guitars appeared on the 2nd pressing of Metal Massacre I.


First Version from Metal Massacre I: with Lloyd Grant on guitars; James Hetfield vocals/bass; Lars Ulrich drums
