Metallica (album)

My Friend of Misery is the eleventh track from the Black Album, released in 1991. It is one of the three songs which Jason Newsted co-written during his years in Metallica (1986–2001). My Friend of Misery was supposed to be an instrumental track, but ended up with lyrics.


  • My Friend of Misery was Played live for the first time on May 7, 2012 in Prague, Czech Repulic.
  • Jason Newsted used the My Friend of Misery bass line on Live Shit: Binge & Purge (the Wherever We May Roam tour, 1991–1993) in his bass solo. He wrote this riff himself and added wah-wah and fast picking parts to it in his famous personal solo. Newsted always wanted My Friend of Misery to be an instrumental track.
