The original title of Kill ‘Em All was Metal Up Your Ass.
The album’s opening cut, “Hit the Lights”, was the first song that frontman James Hetfield and drummer Lars Ulrich wrote together after forming Metallica. An early version of the track appeared on the 1982 compilation “Metal Massacre”.
A number of songs from the album are still part of Metallica’s set list to this day, including “The Four Horsemen”, “Seek and Destroy” and “No Remorse”.
In 2008, Metal Blade Records owner and CEO Brian Slagel conducted interviews with James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich to coincide with the 25th anniversary of “Kill ‘Em All”. Watch the six-and-a-half-minute clip below.
