“The Unforgiven” is the third single from Metallica’s self-titled album, Metallica (also known as the Black Album). Released in 1991, it is one of the slower songs on the album.

Drummer Lars Ulrich explained that the band wanted to try something new with the idea of a ballad – instead of the standard melodic verse and heavy chorus (as evidenced on their previous ballads “Fade to Black,” “Welcome Home (Sanitarium),” and “One”), the band opted to reverse the dynamic, with heavy, distorted verses and a softer, melodic chorus, played with classical guitars.

The horn intro was essentially taken from a Western movie and then reversed so its source would be hidden, as Hetfield later explained on Classic Albums: Metallica – Metallica. While Metallica has never disclosed what movie the horn was taken from, it is believed to be from a piece of music called “The Showdown,” which was composed by Ennio Morricone for the 1965 Clint Eastwood “spaghetti western” film, For a Few Dollars More.

“The Unforgiven” was played live as part of Metallica’s Nowhere Else to Roam world tour which lasted from 1991–1993, in support of the Black Album. It was played again on the Madly in Anger with the World world tour in 2003–2004 and the Escape from the Studio ’06 tour. Ito the 2007 Sick of the Studio tour. It has most recently been played in the bands current “World Magnetic” tour. Also, the song was the band’s third Top 40 hit on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at #35. It had a music video directed by Matt Mahurin.

The live version of “Unforgiven” includes a second solo near the end of the song, something the original recording did not have.

The song has since spawned two sequels (both in name proper as well as thematically), in the form of “The Unforgiven II,” from the album ReLoad, and “The Unforgiven III” from the album Death Magnetic.

“Under the Bridge” is a song by the American alternative rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers, released on March 10, 1992 as the second single from the group’s fifth studio album Blood Sugar Sex Magik. Vocalist Anthony Kiedis wrote the lyrics to express a feeling of loneliness and despondency and to reflect on narcotics and their impact on his life. Kiedis initially did not feel “Under the Bridge” would fit into the Chili Peppers’ repertoire and was reluctant to show it to his band mates until producer Rick Rubin implored him to do so. The rest of the band was receptive to the lyrics and wrote the music.
The song became a critical and commercial success, peaking at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 and later certified platinum by the RIAA. The single’s success was widened with the release of its accompanying video, which was frequently played on music television channels. It won the “Viewer’s Choice Award” and “Breakthrough Video” at the 1992 MTV Video Music Awards.
“Under the Bridge” allowed the Red Hot Chili Peppers to enter the mainstream. David Fricke of Rolling Stone said the song “unexpectedly drop-kicked the band into the Top 10”, while Philip Booth of The Tampa Tribune commented that it was a “pretty, undulating, [and] by-now omnipresent single.”Its success led in part to the departure of guitarist John Frusciante, who preferred the band to remain underground. The song has become an inspiration to other artists, and remains a seminal component of the alternative rock movement of the early- and mid-1990s.
