Metallica have kicked fans' Monday off right with dramatic concert footage of "One," their Grammy-winning third and final single from ...And Justice for All. The video, taken at a November 16th, 1996 show in Stockholm, Sweden, shows the rockers sporting their infamous Load-era haircuts while delivering a progressively rousing version of their anti-war song in which a gravely injured veteran begs God for mercy in death. Of-the-time video blending edits, the group's focused playing and the show's dramatic lighting combine for an epic telling of the tragic tale — and a notably more polished one, when juxtaposed with some of the earlier, rawer footage and audio the band has released ahead of their 30th anniversary Justice box set, due in November.
