Metallica's first home video Cliff 'Em All is released. It's a collection of bootleg and amateur videos shot during 1983-1986 that pays homage to Cliff Burton.
"It's really a look back at the 3 1/2 years that Cliff was with us and includes his best bass solos and the home footage and pix that we feel best capture his unique personality and style. The quality in some places ain't that happening, but the feeling is."
"We're not trying to be something big and fancy. It's just us, doing what we do. Let's keep it that way."
