Hit The Lights Lyrics
We are gonna kick some ass tonight
We got the metal madness
When our fans start screaming
It's right well alright
When we start to rock
We never want to stop again
Hit the lights
Hit the lights

First, as a reminder to some people that Hit The Lights was Metallica's first ever original song. It was originally done with James Hetfield on guitar and bass, and Lars Ulrich on drums. Metallica had Lloyd Grant play guitar for the Metal Massacre entry, then was done with Dave Mustaine (Megadeth) during the No Life Til' Leather demo (which is also one of the lyrics in the song), then it was finally done with Kirk Hammett for the Kill 'Em All track.
Ok, minus that brief history lesson, Hit The Lights basically described the feeling that Metallica felt when they played on stage. It is the feeling that Metallica even today still craves every time they play. They want their fans to go insane. They want their volume to blow everyone away. They want to cause their fans pain (the good kind of pain). That is what this song is about.
