"The Thing That Should Not Be." This has been bugging me for a long time.

The Thing That Should Not Be
Master of Puppets, 1986

This song's lyrics popped up in Sam's "EATING ME" notepad. This is a great song from a classic album, and it deals with the tale of Cthulhu. Lovecraft and whatnot.

The odd part is why? It doesn't fit in with the rest of the lyrics in the notepad. It's not prog. There may be some progressive influences in various Master of Puppets tracks, but Metallica didn't dabble with prog until ...And Justice for All. So why were its lyrics featured in that notepad?

The mysteries just pile on and on.

Whatever's happening, the culprit is most definitely a Hipster.

Prog is considered hipstery? And I was just getting into it too...
