Metallica’s fourth studio …And Justice For All was a no-punches-pulled critique of societal and political justice. From the iconic album cover featuring the Lady Justice statue being pulled to the ground by the people to the clear lyrical references throughout every track, Metallica was locked in as they delivered another classic to the masses. The title track is the payload from Metallica, laying out exactly how they felt about the rich and powerful corrupting America.
Renown artist Brian“Pushead” Schroeder brought the band’s vision to life, providing the famous“Doris” illustrations for the track. The“Doris” artwork is iconic, allowing Pushead to give his skull-clad take on the album cover. The lyrics“their money tips her scales again,” are a jab at the rich influencing politics and justice through money, with Pushead capturing that by adding bills falling from the scales of justice. He also designed the“soon you’ll please their appetite” art, featuring a fanged skull with the scales of justice, prepared to devour those it preys on.
