Jump in the Fire

"Jump in the Fire" is the fourth track on Metallica's 1983 album Kill 'Em All. The lyrics of this song are written from the devil's point of view who's watching the people who are killing each other, and so he is sure that they will all go to hell for their actions – they "jump in the fire". The original lyrics, featured on the No Life 'Til Leather demo, dealt with sexuality, and was written by Dave Mustaine. It is known for its solo at around 3:48.

The song was released as the second single from Kill 'Em All, and was accompanied by fake live performances of "Phantom Lord" and "Seek and Destroy", which were alternate studio recordings with sounds of a crowd overdubbed in.
