    The Metallica version is a 'tribute', as are all the songs on Garage Inc. It's almost note for note/word for word perfect of the Motorhead version. No disrespect to Metallica, but I've got to go with Motorhead. Certainly not because of the quality, but sh!t! We're talking about MOTORHEAD, man.

    I'm definitely a bigger Metallica fan. However, the original by Motorhead is awesome and that gets my vote. I always thought Overkill was a cool word and that's why I have it in my username. I've used the word in usernames on forums for about 6 years now because of this song.
