Every Saturday night we wage a fierce battle during the Slaughterhouse entitled the the Metal Meltdown. We take 2 bands, musicians or songs, pit them against each other and YOU decide the winner by casting your vote! This week’s battle features two songs with the same patriotic name, going head to head.

The phrase "Don't Tread on Me" is a popular term dating all the way back to the Revolutionary War as a sign of patriotism. The term has been quoted on flags, signs, cartoons and even titles for songs.

This week, in celebration of the 4th of July, we are going to take two songs with the title "Don't Tread on Me" in it and put them head-to-head in the Metal Meltdown.

One version is off Metallica's 1991 album (otherwise known as the "Black" album):

The second version also entitled "Don't Tread on Me" was created by a supergroup called Damn Yankees. The band included Ted Nugent, Jack Blades from Night Ranger and Tommy Shaw from Styx. Here is their version:
