Metallica... The grand owl question... The Unforgiven 1, 2 or 3???

    Completely random but trying to settle a debate, which is the better song of the trilogy?

    Unforgiven - The Black Album, 1991
    Unforgiven II - Reload, 1997
    Unforgiven III - Death Magnetic, 2008

    As a purist I assume that most will pick The Unforgiven original? Or maybe just hate the other 2..

    My order is personally 2,1,3

    I think the 2nd has a more poignant melody which just sticks more, could be that I have overheard number 1 so many times..

    Anyways, just wondering...

    :):eek:
    Thanks

  • Definitely the original, it's nostalgic.....




  • 2 is good but a bit tainted by being on Reload, which, to me, is pretty boring bar a few songs.




  • I think II suits reload a lot better than I suits the black album
    III is just a mess.

    So for that reason I would agree II,I,III

    That is a fair point, there is no denying that The Black Album is the far superior album of the 3 but 2 does slot in with the tone of Re-Load

    I think 3 has its moments, certainly the lesser of the 3, for me. I think sometimes I just have so much time for anything that isn't St Anger :D A bit of reverse psychology I think was done by the lads there..




  • 1 , 2, 3 for me.

    The original is absolutely epic. When that solo kicks in, it's awesome. Seeing how it came together as well (Classic Album's Metallica: The Black Album) is fantastic.

    I do like the others a lot. 2 & 3 would be a toss up for 2nd favourite if im honest

  • For me it’s 1 by a mile, it’s no contest really. But I’d go 1, 2 , 3 for purpose of this!




  • No contest for me either, the original is the better song. I love it.

    Unforgiven II isn't too bad though, I can see why some people like it... while the less said about III the better!




  • 1, 2, 3 for me. Never thought it needed a 3rd rendition but Hetfield was obviously upset with himself a third time :pac:




  • I have always somewhat disliked the original song, just doesn't fit with the rest of the album ...but its a belter played live.

    Love II, but not mad about reload.

    III aint worth even mentioning.

    So II, I, III for me.




  • Wouldn't really be a fan of any of them but I is the best of the 3. II is poor and III is scutter.

  • The Unforgiven for me.

    Unforgiven II is a good song though.

    Can't stand III, as far as I can remember it was only Hetfield who wanted it on DM he had to fight a bit for it's inclusion.

    Dreadful song.




  • I tried to get into Metallica recently but didn't like them much, I assumed I would because I like Trivium.

    Something I don't get is why they are viewed as the most "metal" band in history, they are far from it, even those metalcore bands are more metal than Metallica,




  • All three songs are awful. Most metal ballads generally are terrible, exceptions for Iron Maiden and Opeth.

    You didn't get Slayer recording crap like this

    Jaysis, the kids are in!

    The original by far, barely remember the other two

  • DM was the first Metallica album I listened to, so 3 for me. I love the other two as well though and I can see how a lot of long term fans wouldn’t be a fan of 3.

    Also, I’ll never understand why people who aren’t fans go out of their way to come into a thread and tell people how **** the band are.

    Check out their back catalogue

    Well said

    I didn't go out of my way to come into the thread to tell people how **** the band are. As I quite enjoy their first four albums.

    I went out of my way to come into the thread to tell people how **** those three songs are.

    I bet you slagged off people for having short hair and listening to metal back then too?

    I've never had long hair and I listened to a lot of metal - particularly in my teens.




  • Justive.. What are you thinking, Metallica peaked during the some kind of monster filming!
