Yep, it's heavy as fuck live. People just don't like it because they never drop the song, it's really that simple. It's a very good tune and one of their most well known, it's completely understandable as to why they play it all the time.

I don't get the hate some have for Fuel either. Have you ever seen that song live? It rocks as hard as anything else they play.

Both Load & Reload have good songs, especially the former.

Sad But True i'm all for not hating since it's a good-but-overplayed song. Fuel, on the other hand, sucks.

Funny thing about them true methulfans that say "FUEL SUCKZ" is that they never say why.

Probably because of this:

Personally, I think it's decent live song, but I really don't like the studio version; I think it lacks a lot of the energy of the live version. As for the song itself, the opening riff is great, but the verse and chorus riffs are forgettable. And the lyrics are silly, especially the intro (see above video), and the chorus.

Funny thing about them Metallica fanboys too...

Fuel is a shitty song, is that reason enough?

I've never liked Sad But True because it's so plodding, but I get why some people like it. Definitely not one of my favourites.
