The $5.98 E.P.: Garage Days Re-Revisited is an EP released by the American heavy metal band Metallica in August 1987. It is to be considered an official release, as opposed to Garage Inc., a compilation.
The song "The Wait" was omitted from the UK pressings of the album in order to conform to local music-industry rules regarding the length of EPs.
Although the EP is often referred to as "Garage Days" by fans, the trailing portion of the EPs full title is often mistakenly called "Garage Days Revisited" (rather than 'Re-Revisited'), a title which actually refers collectively to Metallica's cover versions of "Am I Evil?" and "Blitzkrieg", which were the two B-sides of the 1984 single "Creeping Death".
The cover of this CD was also used as basis for the back cover of Garage Inc.
There was also a cassette version of this EP, which lists different track lengths as follows, 6:36, 6:39, 4:55, 3:10 and 3:28.
Note: At the end of "Last Caress"/"Green Hell" is a mock parody of Iron Maiden's song "Run to the Hills." Iron Maiden responded to this on a B-side cover of the Montrose song entitled "Space Station No. 5".
Note: The album does not contain 5 songs, actually has in its fullness 6, the last item on the album called "Last Caress" / "Green Hell" actually contains 2 versions of the Misfits, Last Caress is not the same subject as Green Hell, the Last Caress outcome of the subject ends at the 1:28 minute giving way to the Green Hell theme that begins at minute 1:29
