“I Disappear” is a song by the heavy metal band Metallica. The song was recorded as a contribution to the Mission: Impossible II Soundtrack and reached #1 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks.

The discovery of the song in early 2000 on the P2P file-sharing network Napster helped bring the illegal sharing of mp3 files to the spotlight, leading to the massive lawsuits that eventually brought down the original incarnation of Napster.[citation needed]

The video to the song, directed by Wayne Isham, features the members from Metallica in scenes that reference other movies, James Hetfield is driving a car down a San Franciscan hill, in a chase sequence resembling Bullitt, Kirk Hammett is on a desert being chased by a plane (North by Northwest), Jason Newsted is in a mansion struggling against hundreds of people that walk by him (Brazil), and Lars Ulrich jumps off a building (Die Hard). The car driven by James in the video is a 1967 Chevrolet Camaro. Upon the video’s completion, it was given to Hetfield as a gift. It was later auctioned off on eBay by James himself for charity.

This is Metallica’s last studio release featuring bassist Jason Newsted, who left the following year.
