Sometime, people like to drive too fast. Sometimes, people like to live too fast. For those special moments, there’s always Metallica.
This video was directed by Wayne Isham, who has directed the majority of Metallica’s videos, not to mention videos for just about everyone else in the music business as well. The video was produced by Quentin Tarantino’s production company, A Band Apart and the use of dramatic title cards certainly does fit in with Tarantino’s aesthetic. The video feels like a tribute to the car chase films of the 60s and 70s. It’s Death Proof before Death Proof.
Fuel was later covered by Avirl Lavigne. Be careful bringing that up in certain company.
