Metallica vs. Faster Pussycat

In 1991 Metallica, already metal gods,  broke out into the mainstream with “Enter Sandman”.  I don’t think Faster Pussycat ever reached their level of success but they did release “Where There’s A Whip There’s A Way” on an album called “Wake Me When It’s Over” that sounds eerily similar to Sandman. There are no identical note for note similarities here but if you put together the overall songs they are very similar. Have a listen to these clips I made and see for yourself:

Intro/Riff

Faster Pussycat - "Where There's A Whip There's A Way" (1989)

Metallica - "Enter Sandman" (1991)

Chorus Outro

Faster Pussycat - "Where There's A Whip There's A Way" (1989)

Metallica - "Enter Sandman" (1991)

Guitar Solo

Faster Pussycat - "Where There's A Whip There's A Way" (1989)

Metallica - "Enter Sandman" (1991)

    The use of “America” in the introduction to “Don’t Tread on Me” is clearly an intentional reference. You’re supposed to notice it.

    I love this song, but did anyone else notice that Avenged Sevenfold’s “Shepherd of Fire” sounds a lot like Metallica’s “Enter Sandman”? Not the entire thing, but at least half of it, in particular, they both have parts where the singer is ominously, cryptically talking during a break in the music.
