Late Night Songlist (Metallica is Overrated Edition)

This list is composed of all the original versions of songs Metallica covered on their Garage Inc. album. And by "covered" I mean "turned into a bunch of sludge that all sounded exactly the same." It is, however, an interesting mix of heavy metal and punk and some other junk that makes for a pretty good playlist. This is going to be quite long, so bare with me. Or not.

Disc 1:
1. Discharge - Free Speech for the Dumb
2. Diamond Head - It's Electric
3. Black Sabbath - Sabbra Cadabra (Metallica's version includes a chunk of A National Acrobat)
4. Bob Seger - Turn the Page
5. The Misfits - Die, Die My Darling
6. Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds - Loverman
7. Mercyful Fate Medley:
*Satan's Fall (Part 1) (Part 2)
*Curse of the Pharaohs
*A Corpse Without Soul
*Into the Coven
8. Blue Öyster Cult - Astronomy
9. Whiskey in the Jar
*Thin Lizzy's Version (The version Metallica is covering)
*The also pretty great Dubliners version
10. Lynyrd Skynyrd - Tuesday's Gone
11. Discharge - The More I See (The Metallica version also includes a short chunk of Bridge of Sighs by Robin Trower)

Disc 2:
1. Diamond Head - Helpless
2. Holocaust - The Small Hours
3. Killing Joke - The Wait
4. Budgie - Crash Course in Brain Surgery
5. *Misfits - Last Caress
*Misfits - Green Hell
(Also contains a mocking parody of Iron Maiden's Run to the Hills. Maiden responded with a rant at the end of a cover of Space Station No. 5 by Montrose. (Part one) (Part two)(The original Montrose version)
6. Diamond Head - Am I Evil?
7. Blitzkrieg - Blitzkrieg
8. Budgie - Breadfan
9. Diamond Head - The Prince
10. Queen - Stone Cold Crazy
11. Anti-Nowhere League - So What?
12. Sweet Savage - Killing Time
13. Motorhead - Overkill
14. Motorhead - Damage Case
15. Motorhead - Stone Dead Forever
16. Motorhead - Too Late Too Late

Sorry this ended up being so long. If all this metal and punk has been too much for your brain, please have some Yanni and my apologies.
