On September 7, 1988, the mighty Metallica unleashed their fourth studio album, …And Justice for All. The record contained tracks like “Blackened,” “Harvester of Sorrow,” and “One,” which would all become massive hits for the band. In 1989, “One” garnered Metallica their first GRAMMY® Award for Best Metal Performance. At the time, the album was marred by muddled production. The songs, however, were some of the band’s most precise and visceral outings to date.
