..And Justice for All is the fourth studio album by American heavy metal band Metallica, released August 25, 1988 on Elektra Records. It was the band’s first studio album to feature bassist Jason Newsted after the death of Cliff Burton in 1986. …And Justice for All is musically progressive, with long and complex songs, fast tempos, and few verse-chorus structures. The album is noted for its dry, sterile production, which producer Flemming Rasmussen attributed to his absence during the mixing process. The lyrics feature themes of political and legal injustice seen through the prism of war, censored speech, and nuclear brinkmanship.

Bruce Gary (7 April 1951 – 22 August 2006) was best known as the drummer for the music group The Knack. He was nominated for twoGrammy Awards as a stage performer, producer, and recording artist.

In 1978 he found himself in a band with singer Doug Fieger, guitarist Berton Averre, and bassist Prescott Niles. Fieger and Averre brought in a tune they’d written about Sharona Alperin, a teenage girl Fieger was obsessed with. Despite his initial reservations about the song, Gary came up with a beat to match “My Sharona“‘s stuttering style. He later said he approached the song like a surf stomp. As he explained, drummers in surf bands often play songs using no cymbals, just kick drum, snare drum, and toms. He also borrowed from the drum part to “Going to a Go Go” by Smokey Robinson and the Miracles.
