Kirk Hammett Names His Favorite Song To Play Live Off Metallica’s Hardwired… To Self-Destruct

Since its release, Metallica has performed seven tracks off of Hardwired… To Self-Destruct live. Kirk Hammett was recently asked by CFOX which one was his favorite to play, and the answer may surprise you. The legendary guitarist said this, “I really like playing ‘Halo on Fire.’ There’s just something about that song that just like… We established a mood really quickly, and it seems like the audience is with us every step of the way. Because when we get to the chorus, the audience is singing the chorus with us. It’s cool. It’s a really cool, fun song to play on guitar as well. It’s one of funner songs for me to play. But I also like ‘Hardwired,’ I like ‘Atlas Rise!’, I like playing ‘Moth Into Flame,’ I love all those songs. What can I say, they’re all great songs!

I totally agree with Kirk. They are all great songs, but there is something really special about witnessing ‘Halo on Fire’ live. See below!
