Disposable Heroes is the fifth track of Metallica's 1986 album Master of Puppets.

The song, following the control theme, rails against the military and the control it has over its soldiers. The soldier himself narrates the song during the verses and the soldier's superior narrates during the chorus. The song follows a similar musical style as most of the rest of the album, being at a frenetic pace and featuring many riffs and solos by Kirk Hammett.

    I remember loving that guitar solo in 1994 and I still love it to this day. I'm still gonna love it when I'm in my twilight.

Bodies fill the fields I see, hungry heroes end
No one to play soldier now, no one to pretend
Running blind through killing fields, bred to kill them all
Victim of what said should be, a servant 'til I fall
