This track is one of my favourites by this band and my son can play the drums part almost perfectly using just his hands, and sometimes goes faster than the drummer. But there again with his Asperger’s Syndrome, he can control the speed his hands move in a way that I have never seen before. This Heavy Metal band had their first top 40 entry in the Billboard Hot 100 with this track. It is the one track that is played at every gig since it’s release in 1989 making it the most played track that the band have released. For the first seventeen seconds, all that can be heard are sound effects, then it is instrumental for the next minute and a half. The song is based on the 1939 novel by Dalton Trumbo called Johnny Got His Gun. The track is about a man who is hit by an artillery shell and loses his hearing, sight and limbs.
