This past weekend we had a lot to celebrate on The Ultimate Metallica Show.

First of all, we cranked up several live performances from Metallica's 2006 performance of Master of Puppets. Then, we traveled back to San Francisco in 1986 to hear from Cliff Burton's first-ever live show with Metallica.

That was just the first hour.

In the second half of the show, we wished Lou Reed and Jason Newsted a happy birthday, and of course we had to celebrate the three greatest words in the world: Brand. New. Metallica.

If you missed anything, don't worry; you can stream The Ultimate Metallica Show 24/7 here and see the full playlist below.

Lovecraft's writings—we decided to dig deep into the history of Master of Puppets to pull out 10 facts that only superfans would know.
