Unplayed Songs

Heavy Metal Business Intelligence: A Visual Data Exploration of Metallica's 30 Years on the Road

Album songs that have never been played live, at least in an official "whole" way.
Note: The band plans on playing Ride the Lightning and The Black Album in their entirety this summer at the Orion Music and More festival, so those will drop off this list at the end of June.

Show and song data from Metallica.com, location and distances calculated by Google Maps API, song length data from MusicBrainz database, visualization software by Tableau Public, and putting it all together courtesy of Me.

More Metallica Reports, Setlists, Analytics and More

Be the first to know when I add new analytic pages and breakdowns. Its going to be a great couple of years for Metallica fans.

Adding new stuff all the time and will be refreshed after every 2012+ Metallica show and festival. Think of anything that should be here but isn't, see anything that is wrong? Leave a comment, mate!

       Well, not an actual “show” as per what I’m looking at, data-wise – but, hell, I’d have to say that that still COUNTS! Thanks, I’ll have to fudge that one out of the list. :)

    Did the band see this?

       Hah, I don’t know. I do know that peeps from the official message board and fan club have been looking at all of this stuff. :)
