Here's An Infographic On Every Song METALLICA Ever Played Live Between 1982 And 2012

Sites like Setlist.fm will give you setlists of shows around the world, though it's all fan input and getting back to certain shows can be a real pain in the ass. Instead of relying on a resource like that for Metallica, Deniz Cem Önduygu and company from Çilek Ağacı took all the band's setlists and compiled them into the below infographic.

The infographic reveals some pretty surprisingly information as well. Like for instance, "Master Of Puppets" just beats out "Creeping Death" live, and the band has only played the totally kickass and criminally underrated "Minus Human" four times ever.

Oh, and here's an explanation for the Song Power chart, which is confusing if you have no idea what you're looking at.

Song Power is calculated by dividing the total play count of the song by the number of concerts after its first playing date. Album Power is the total play count of the songs from the album divided by the number of all songs played in all concerts after the date when a song from that album was first played (which may be before the release of that album) and then divided by the number of songs on it. This is a normalization to eliminate the advantage that the old songs have (they had more time to be played) in order to create more neutral rankings. You can also say that a song with the Power value 0.945 has a 95% chance of being played in the next concert. The Album Powers are additionally normalized with respect to the numbers of songs on the albums. (The Album Power values on the chart are multiplied by 10 for presentation efficiency.)
