"Let's altogether Set the Stage alight”
NWoBHM band Weapon 1980
“Metallica opened its early live sets (and “Kill em all” album) with “Hit the lights” a song that begins with a noisy 2 – chord flourish meant to evoke the opening of a concert.
However, in a further illustration of NWOBHM’s important role in Metallica’s musical direction, the opening chords – drum fills and all seem to have been lifted directly from Weapon’s “Set the Stage alight” The 1980 release from the influential fledgling NWOBHM band”"
