The Lyrics

I'm having trouble remembering
The title of the song i now sing
Sometimes i just want to scream
It's driving me crazy

I know that there's something wrong
Cannot remember that Metallica song
The one where the guy's legs and arms are gone
I know it's about wartime

Bang my head against the walls again
The title escapes me

This frustration's so unreal
That song has such strong appeal
You'd say it aint that big a deal
But it really it bugs me

watching videos on mtv
guess which band i now see
It's Metallica, mercy me!
The video of that war tune!!

Now i'll know the title of this one
God help me!
they'll show it at the end of the song
on mtv!

(guitar solo)

hits the tv
nothing i see
absolute problem!
i cannot think
tv won't work
cable box on
electrical stench i smell

has taken my thoughts
taken my speech
silence i'm hearing
head cocked back
laughing out loud
i slap my forehead
now in an emotional hell!

Hmm... theme's not that funny and there are some minor pacing problems. I'd like to give it better than 434 but there are some writers here that has lifted the standard for 5s lately. Don't worry, you'll get there too ONE day. BTW: Did you know that the riff in this song has been voted (In Kerrange I think, though it might have been Blastwaves or somewhere else) the catchiest ever, even before that of "Smoke on the water"! Personally I'd say "Can't live without you" by Scorpions should have that title, but that's just my 2 cents. :-)

Who is the original performer? Why was that field left blank? Huh?

I can answer that cos I figured it out from Rick's other parodies of today and the context of its lyrics: It's (I'm 99,9% sure) "One" by Metallica.
