About this song

"Motorbreath" is about "living life in the fast lane" and "not ending up like others same song and dance." It means to live life to the fullest and enjoy being alive. During early shows former lead guitarist, Mustaine, said that it was their version of a love song. This is the only song in the history of the band that is credited to Hetfield alone, one of two in which Ulrich doesn't have a credit (both on this album, the other is "(Anesthesia) Pulling Teeth"). At 3:08, it is the shortest original Metallica recording. (Only certain cover songs recorded by the band are shorter.)
