Talking Rock and Roll History: The 90's!!! (Part 2)

Welcome back to our little musical trip through time we like to call Rock and Roll History, where we are currently focusing on the middle of the 90's! Now we begin with a new year:

1996!!!!

Oh, it was a year full of Crap-tacular Comebacks!!! Raucous Reunions!!! And one very brutal breakup.

For now, in response to the question we posed at the end of 1995, a business partner of a very famous band said that he would kill himself if the group he worked with ever "cut their hair". And the band in question is--

Red face Get a "Load" of the NEW Metallica!!

Yes, it was true. An event sent shock waves all through the music world: Metallica was the band that had actually CUT THEIR HAIR on the eve of the release of their latest album! And unbelieveably, it was also announced that the band was going to headline Lollapalooza!! The biggest alternative music festival was going to be headlined by the world's biggest metal band?? Was this a sign of the Apocalypse??

It was in fact a sign that Metallica were changing with the times. Long hair was not the norm so much any more, and the band felt that had to remain one step of the rest of the metal world (what little was left of it, in the minds of many) to remain credible. The band was no longer the same four dudes clad in frayed jeans and skull shirts, they were now grown up, and very rich. But they didn't want to appear that they had "sold out", as hard as it was for some to accept. The new album, Load, featured the band continuing on in the same vein as the "Black Album", with a few differences. For one, the Metallica logo was revamped to trim down on the trademark "wings" of the beginning letter M and ending letter A. But what was in fact that messy album cover all about? To the dismay of bassist Jason Newsted, the cover was a photo by controversial artist Andres Serrano, who had caused an uproar over a photo of a plastic Jesus figure immersed in a jar of urine. The cover was a microscope test slide of blood and other human bodily fluids that made the cover theme seem scatalogical. Newsted expressed his disgust for the cover, but as the "new kid" after almost ten years, he was outvoted in the decisions regarding the cover art. Apparently, Newsted was not being taken seriously by the rest of the band, he was still considered a "hired gun".

The songs were still very much a step away from traditional metal, in fact, it sounded more like a heavier version of classic rock--which was surprising that such output could still find an audience in the 90's.

The first hit from the album featured one of the band's favorite sounds, the "Spaghetti Western" clean guitar tone twang that was heard on "The Unforgiven". The lyrics dealt with the pain of James Hetfield losing his father to death through illness, much in the same way he lost his mother years before:

Until It Sleeps

Where do I take this pain of mine
I run but it stays right by my side

So tear me open and pour me out
There's things inside that scream and shout
And the pain still hates me
So hold me until it sleeps

Just like the curse, just like the stray
You feed it once and now it stays
Now it stays

So tear me open but beware
There's things inside without a care
And the dirt still stains me
So wash me until I'm clean

It grips you so hold me
It stains you so hold me
It hates you so hold me
It holds you so hold me
Until it sleeps

So tell me why you've chosen me
Don't want your grip
Don't want your greed
Don't want it

I'll tear me open make you gone
No more can you hurt anyone
And the fear still shakes me
So hold me, until it sleeps

It grips you so hold me
It stains you so hold me
It hates you so hold me
It holds you, holds you, holds you until it sleeps (x4)

I Don't want it want it want it want it want it
No

So tear me open but beware
There's things inside without a care
And the dirt still stains me
So wash me 'til I'm clean

I'll tear thee open make you gone
No longer will you hurt anyone
And the hate still shapes me
So hold me until it sleeps (x5)

Load, while continuing in the same non-thrash mode as the self-titled Metallica album had, was quite different from anything they ever did. The customary heaviness was there, but they still pretty much sounded like a "commercial" heavy rock band and not necessarily "metal". In fact, it was still one of the metal-est albums out there. Fans criticized the band's direction, but Lars Ulrich pointed out that they were not going to match the success of the "black album", every album was going to be considered a "post-black album". They had to do what they felt led to do now. And coming up with a new Ride the Puppets was simply out of the question.

This next song is one of the best on the album:

Hero of the Day

Mama they try and break me

The window burns to light the way back home
A light that warms no matter where they've gone

They're off to find the hero of the day
But what if they should fall by someone's wicked way

Still the window burns
Time so slowly turns
And someone there is sighing
Keepers of the flames
Do you hear your names?
Did you hear your baby's crying?
Mama they try and break me
Still they try and break me

S'cuse me while I tend to how I feel
These things return to me that still seem real

Now deservingly this easy chair
But the rocking stopped by wheels of despair

Don't want your aid
But the fist I've made
For years, can't hold or feel
No I'm not all me
So please excuse me
While I tend to how I feel

But now the dreams and waking screams
That everlast the night
So build a wall
Behind it crawl
And hide until it's light
So can you hear your baby's crying now?

Still the window burns
Time so slowly turns
And someone there is sighing
Keepers of the flames
Can't you hear your names?
Did you hear your baby's crying?

But now the dreams and waking screams
That everlast the night
So build a wall
Behind it crawl
And hide until it's light
So can't hear your baby's crying now?

Mama they try and break me
Mama they try and break me
Mama they try and break me
Mama they try
Mama they try
Mama they try and break me
Mama they try and break me
Mama they try and break me
Mama they try
Mama they try

Cool Metallica

When Metallica's "Black Album" was released in the fall of 1991, it was at the tail end of the 80's metal reign on the pop charts. The Black Album not only held its own for the next year, but became the standard by which any and all significant metal albums of the 90's (which were few) were measured. The L.A. pop metal scene was pretty much wiped off the map, but aggro-metal with a social conscience still had a sizeable audience.

When it was announced that Metallica was returning from the long alternative winter, fans were ecstatic. Metallica was the last, if not only, reputable metal band out there (for those not familiar with Pantera). Newer fans were expecting an improvement on the Black Album (how do you improve on perfection?), while older fans were holding out hope that the band was returning to their 80's thrash roots. Wrong on both counts. The new album, produced again by Bob Rock, was a very good solid disk, to be sure, but not the revelation that its predecessor was.

Here is one of the heaviest songs on the album, along the lines of the black album's "Sad But True". The bass is very monstrous.

King Nothing

Wish I may
Wish I might
Have this I wish tonight
Are you satisfied?
Dig for gold
Dig for fame
You dig to make your name
Are you pacified?

All the wants you waste
All the things you've chased

Then it all crashes down
And you break your crown
And you point your finger
But there's no one around

Just want one thing
Just to play the king
But the castle's crumbled
And you're left with just a name

Where's your crown King Nothing?
Where's your crown?

Hot and cold
Bought and sold
A heart as hard as gold
Yeah! Are you satisfied?

Wish I might
Wish I may
You wish your life away
Are you pacified?

All the wants you waste
All the things you've chased

Then it all crashes down
And you break your crown
And you point your finger
But there's no one around

Just want one thing
Just to play the king
But the castle's crumbled
And you're left with just a name

Where's your crown King Nothing?
Where's your crown?

Huh!

(Spoken)
I wish I may
I wish I might
Have this wish I wish tonight
I want that star
I want it now
I want it all and I don't care how

Careful what you wish
Careful what you say
Careful what you wish
You may regret it
Careful what you wish
You just might get it

Then it all crashes down
And you break your crown
And you point your finger
But there's no one around

Just want one thing
Just to play the king
But the castle's crumbled
And you're left with just a name

Where's your crown King Nothing?
No Nothing

No you're just nothing
Where's your crown King Nothing?
No you're just nothing
Absolutely nothing

Off to never never land

By the time Metallica returned to the fold in the spring of 1996, the alternative scene was waning in its impact, alternative had succeeded in becoming the new mainstream, and there were few big bands since Kurt Cobain's death. Metallica's upcoming release was a very big deal to metal fans--though the announcement that they were headlining Lollapalooza was seen as the festival's final capitulation into "corporate rock", it was no longer the showcase for new, exciting alternative acts. While some insideres claimed that "after all, Metallica is the biggest alternative band" (due to their being the polar opposite to corporate Hollywood hair bands such as Motley Crue and Ratt), many had a hard time accepting Hetfield and Co. as being on the level of bands such as Jane's Addiction, Pearl Jam, or R.E.M. Was Metallica now Alternapaloozika? And oddly enough, Metallica was now even being played on....alternative radio??

Ain't My Bitch

Outta my way
Outta my day
Outta your mind and into mine
Into no one
Into not one
Into your step but outta time

Head strong
What's wrong?
I've already heard this song before
you've arrived
But now it's time
To kiss your ass good-bye

Dragging me down
Why you around?
So useless

It ain't my fall
It ain't my call
It ain't my bitch-a

It ain't my bitch

Down on the sun
Down and no fun
Down and out where the hell ya been?
Damn it all down
Damn it unbound
Damn it all down ta hell again

Stand tall
Can't fall
Never even bend at all before
you've arrived
But now it's time
To kiss your ass good-bye

Dragging me down
Why you around?
So useless

It ain't my fall
It ain't my call
It ain't my bitch

Oh, outta my way

Outta my way
Outta my day
Outta of your mind and into mine
Into no one
Into not one
Into your step but outta of time

Head strong
What's wrong?
I've already heard this song before
you've arrived
But now it's time
To kiss your ass good-bye
And now it's time to kiss your ass good-bye (time to kiss ass)

Dragging me down
Why you around?
So useless

It ain't my fall
It ain't my call
It ain't my bitch

No way but down
Why you around?
No foolin'

It ain't my smile
It ain't my style
It ain't my bitch
No, it ain't mine

Ain't mine
Your kind
Your stepin' outta time
Ain't mine
Your kind
Your stepin' outta time

Dragging me down
Why you around?
No foolin'

It ain't my fall
It ain't my call
It ain't my, oh, bitch
you ain't mine

This next song is haunting, yet eerily beautiful. It is another one of the best songs on the album:

Bleeding Me

I'm diggin' my way
I'm diggin' my way to somethin'
I'm diggin' my way to somethin' better

I'm pushin' to stay
I'm pushin' to stay with something
I'm pushin' to stay with something better

I'm sowing the seeds
I'm sowing the seeds I've taken
I'm sowing the seeds I take for granted

This thorn in my side
This thorn in my side is from the tree
This thorn in my side is from the tree I've planted
It tears me and I bleed
And I bleed

Caught under wheels roll
I take the leash
I'm bleeding me
Can't stop to save my soul
I take the leash that's leading me
I'm bleeding me
I can't take it
Caught under wheels roll
Oh, the bleeding of me
Of me
The bleeding of me

Caught under wheels roll
I take the leach
I'm bleeding me
Can't stop to save my soul
I take the leash that's leading me
I'm bleeding me
I can't take it
Caught under wheels roll
Oh, the bleeding of me
Oh, the bleeding of me

I am the beast that bleeds the feast
I am the blood
I am release
Come make me pure
Bleed me a cure
I'm caught, I'm caught, I'm caught under

Caught under wheels roll
I take the leach
I'm bleeding me
Can't stop to save my soul
I take the leash that's leading me
I'm bleeding me
I can't take it
I can't take it
I can't take it
Oh, the bleeding of me

I'm diggin' my way
I'm diggin' my way to somethin'
I'm diggin' my way to something better

I'm pushin' to stay
I'm pushin' to stay with somethin'
I'm pushin' to stay with something better
With something better

Wasting My Hate

Good day, how do
And I send a smile to you
Don't waste, waste your breath
And I won't waste my hate on you

Ain't gonna waste my hate
Ain't gonna waste my hate on you
I think I'll keep it for myself

Ain't gonna give no more
Ain't got the time to help you score
I think it's time you pleased yourself
Yourself

Good day how do
And I send a smile to you

Don't waste
Waste your breath
And I won't waste my hate on you
Waste my hate on you

Think you're worthy now
Think enough to even raise the brow
And to laugh and tip that two pronged crown

I see my hands I see my feet
I feel that blood that pumps in me
Where the hell's my mind goin' now
Goin' now

Good day how do
And I send a smile to you

Don't waste
Waste your breath
And I won't waste my hate on you
Waste my hate on you
Think I'll keep it for myself

Ain't gonna waste my hate
But I'm so greedy when they say
Better to give than to recieve

Ain't gonna waste my hate
Ain't got time to waste my hate on you
I think I'll keep it all for myself
For myself

Good day how do
and I send a smile to you

Don't waste
Waste your breath
And I won't waste my hate on you
Waste my hate on you

Think I'll keep it for myself
Yeah

Hate

This song was something new by Metallica: a bluesy shuffle with crushing guitars:

2x4

Yeah
I'm gonna make you, shake you, take you
I'm gonna be the one who breaks you
Put the screws into ya, yeah my way
Yeah, come on, come on, come and make my day
Make my day

Yeah
Got some hell to pay ya, I steal your thunder
The joy of violent movement, pulls you under
Ooh bite the bullet, well hard
Yea, but I bite harder, so go too far
Too far

Friction, fusion, retribution
I can't hear ya... talk ta me
I can't hear ya... so talk ta me
I can't hear ya are you talkin' ta me
I can't hear ya are you talkin' ta me
I can't hear ya time ta meet my lord
I can't hear ya talk ta 2 by 4

I'm gonna make you, shake you, take you
I'm gonna be that one who breaks you
Put the screws into ya, my way
Hey come on, come on, come and make my day
Make my day

Friction, fusion, retribution
I can't hear ya... talk ta me
I can't hear ya... come talk ta me
I can't hear ya are you talking ta me
I can't hear ya while your talking ta me
I can't hear ya time ta meet my lord
I can't hear ya talk ta 2 by 4

Talk ta 2 by 4
It don't take no more
Come on yeah

Come on, come on
Talk ta 2 by 4
Talk ta 2 by 4

Friction, fusion, retribution
I'm going to make you... talk ta me
I'm going to take you... so talk ta me
I can't hear ya are you talking ta me
I can't hear ya you talking ta me
I can't hear ya time ta meet my lord
I can't hear ya talk ta, talk ta 2 by 4

Interestingly enough, Lars Ulrich switched from playing double-bass drums, a Metallica staple for years, to playing a single-bass, because, he said, he "didn't want to end up sounding 80's."

Poor Twisted Me

Oh poor twisted me
Oh poor twisted me
I feast on sympathy
I chew on suffer
I chew on agony

Swallow whole the pain
Oh it's too good to be
All this misery

Is just for oh poor twisted me
Poor twisted me

Poor mistreated me
Poor mistreated me
I drown without a sea
Lungs fill with sorrow
Lungs fill with misery

Inhaling the deep dark blue
Oh woe is me
Such a burden to be
Poor mistreated me

To finally reach the shore
Survive the storm
Now you're bare and cold
The sea was warm
So warm
Your bathe your soul again
Bathe it again, and again, and again

To finally reach the shore
Survive the storm
Now you're bare and cold
The sea was warm
So warm, you bathe your soul again

Good to see my friend
Oh woe is me
Such a burden to be
Oh poor twisted me
Oh poor twisted me
Poor twisted me

It was very strange for many to see the new Metallica. Many fans had a hard time accepting the fact that they were no longer the Metallidudes with skateboards and the whole Metal-Up-Your-Ass attitude from over twenty years ago. They had grown, matured, lived in very cosy mansions in the Bay Area. Lars had gotten into such refined activities as painting and collecting art. He was also dubbed "Stars Ulrich" because of his new "uppercrust" lifestyle. Kirk Hammett lived in a spacious home lined with classic horror movie posters all over the walls. Why was success, which they fought for so many years for, in spite of the naysayers, so hard for many fans (or ex-fans) to accept?

The House That Jack Built

Open doors so I walk inside
Close my eyes
Find my place to hide
And I shake as I take it in
Let the show begin

Open my eyes
Just to have them close again
Well on my way
But on my way to where I've been

It swallows me
As it takes me in its void
I twist away
As I give this world a nod

Open doors so I walk inside
Close my eyes
Find my place to hide
And I shake as I take it in

Let the show begin

Open my eyes
Just to have them close once again
Don't want control
As it takes me down and down and down again

Is that the moon
Or just a light that lights this dead end street?
Is that you there
Or just another demon that I meet?

The higher you are
The farther you fall
The longer the walk
The farther you crawl
My body my temple
This temple it tells
"Step into the house that Jack built"

The higher you are
The farther you fall
The longer the walk
The farther you crawl
My body my temple
This temple it tells
"Step into the house that Jack built"


Open doors as I walk inside
Swallow me so the pain subsides
And I shake as I take this in
Let the show begin

The higher you are
The farther you fall
The longer the walk
The farther you crawl
My body my temple
This temple it tells
"Step into the house that Jack built"


The higher you are
The farther you fall
The longer the walk
The farther you crawl
My body my temple
This temple it tells
"Yes I am I am I am"

Open my eyes
It swallows me
Is that you there
I twist away

Away
Away
Away

Mama Said

Mama, she has taught me well
Told me when I was young
Son, your life's an open book
Don't close it 'fore its done
The brightest flame burns quickest
Is what I heard her say
A son's heart sewed to mother
But I must find my way

Let my heart go
Let your son grow
Mama, let my heart go
Or let this heart be still

Rebel my new last name
Wild blood in my veins
Apron strings around my neck
The mark that still remains
Left home at an early age
Of what I heard was wrong
I never asked forgiveness
But what is said is done

Let my heart go
Let your son grow
Mama, let my heart go
Or let this heart be still

Never I ask of you
But never I give
But you give me your emptiness
I now take to my grave
Never I ask of you
But never I give
But you give me your emptiness
I now take to my grave
So let this heart be still

Mama, now I'm coming home
I'm not all you wished of me
A mother's love for her son
Unspoken, help me be
*Yeah*, I took your love for granted
And all the things you said to me
I need your arms to welcome me
But, a cold stone's all I see

Let my heart go
Let your son grow
Mama, let my heart go
Or let this heart be still

Let my heart go
Mama, let my heart go
You never let my heart go
So let this heart be still

Never I ask of you
But never I give
But you give me your emptiness
I now take to my grave

Never I ask of you
But never I give
But you give me your emptiness
I now take to my grave
So let this heart be still

Music The Beatles - Anothlogy 2

In April 1996, the Beatles released the second of three retrospective albums of previously unreleased recordings, Anthology 2.



The second double album (triple on vinyl) included outtakes from the Help!, Rubber Soul, Revolver, Sgt. Pepper and Magical Mystery Tour sessions, plus several live cuts, TV performances, a home demo, and a new song, "Real Love."

Written and recorded in demo form by John Lennon in 1979 - before the Doobie Brothers and Jody Watley ever conceived songs of the same name - the Beatles overdubbed their instruments and harmonies in 1995. First debuted on U.S. television with a music video in November 1995, it was released the following April.

Unlike "Free As A Bird," an uncompleted Lennon song the other three Beatles finished writing, "Real Love" was a finished song that was overdubbed and remixed to produce the final product.

Real Love - the Beatles

(Lennon)

All my little plans and schemes,
Lost like some forgotten dream.
Seems like all I really was doing
Was waiting for you.

Just like little girls and boys,
Playing with their little toys.
Seems that all we really were doing
Was waiting for love.

No need to be alone,
No need to be alone.
It's real love,
It's real.

From this moment on I know
Exactly where my life will go.
Seems that all I really was doing
Was waiting for love.

No need to be afraid,
No need to be afraid.
It's real love,
It's real.
Yes it's real love,
It's real.

Thought I'd been in love before,
But in my heart I wanted more.
Seems like all I really was doing
Was waiting for you.

No need to be alone,
No need to be alone.
It's real love,
It's real.
Yes it's real love,
Yes it's real. . . .

(REPEAT UNTIL FADE)

Red face Ringo's "Trouble"

The Beatles's Anthology 2 included three unreleased compositions, a Booker T. and the M.G.'s-style instrumental called "12-Bar Original" (from the Rubber Soul sessions) and two songs from the Help! sessions.

One such song, "If You've Got Trouble," was given to Ringo to sing. A sloppily written song, "If You've Got Trouble" was a mean-spirited tune belittling a woman who complains about her troubles and insisting that the man's trouble's are far, far worse. Underlying the song is the idea that a woman's problems don't matter, so why bother with any of that? Ironically, the Beatles recorded it at the same time Ringo got married!

After one take, "If You've Got Trouble" was abandoned and forgotten for another three decades. "Some of those songs," Paul McCartney admitted, "we just couldn't get behind!"

If You've Got Trouble - the Beatles

(Lennon / McCartney)

If you've got trouble,
Then you've got less trouble than me.
You say you're worried,
You can't be as worried as me.
You're quite content to be bad
With all the advantage you've had over me.
Just 'cause you're troubled,
Then don't bring your troubles to me.

I don't think it's funny
When you ask for money fo things,
Especially when you're standing there
Wearing diamonds and rings.
You think I'm soft in the head
Well, try someone softer instead, pretty thing,
It's not so funny
When you know what money can bring.

(BRIDGE)
You better leave me alone,
I don't need a thing from you.
You better get yourself home,
Go and count a ring or two.

(REPEAT FIRST VERSE)

Ahh, rock on, anybody!

(REPEAT BRIDGE)

(REPRET FIRST VERSE)

Just 'cause you're troubled,
Then don't bring your troubles to me.
Just 'cause you're troubled,
Then don't bring your troubles to me.



(Ringo with his new wife, Maureen Cox, in early 1965.)

Cool The Beatles - "That Means A Lot"

The other outtake song from the Help! sessions was a complex ballad called "That Means A Lot." A far better song than "If You've Got Trouble," "That Means A Lot" was repeatedly recorded throughout the sessions for the Help! LP by the Beatles, who labored intensely to get it right. But the Fabs weren't satisfied with it, and so they decided to give it to someone whom they felt could do a better job with it.

That someone was P.J. Proby, an American singer living in London who was known for his unorthodox pop singing style. Although getting an original Lennon/McCartney song in 1965 was like getting manna from heaven, Proby's recording of "That Means A Lot" was not a big hit.

Yet another song Michael Jackson didn't know he owned when he bought the Lennon-McCartney song catalog.

That Means A Lot - the Beatles

(Lennon / McCartney)

A friend says that your love won't mean a lot,
And you know that your love is all you've got.
At times they go so fine,
And at times they're not.
But when she says she loves you,
That means a lot.

A friend says that a love is never true,
And you know that this could apply to you.
A touch can mean so much,
When it's all you've got.
But when she says she loves you,
That means a lot.

Love can be deep inside,
Love can be suicide.
Can't you see you can't hide
What you feel when it's real.

(REPEAT FIRST VERSE)

Can't you see, yeah,
Can't you see?
Can't you see?



(P.J. Proby, as he appeared on the sleeve for the extended play record release of his version of Lennon and McCartney's "That Means A Lot.")

Exclamation The Blizzard of '96!

On January 7, 1996, the American Northeast was pummeled by a ferocious, unrelenting snowstorm that dumped up to three feet of snow across the region and paralyzed the area's transportation system.

On one snowbound Amtrak train, a balding, mustachioed man picked up his acoustic guitar and treated his fellow passengers to a welcome impromptu performance. The man was none other than Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul and Mary.
