The snake in the artwork as well as the track "Don't Tread On Me" were inspired by a historical American flag, The Gadsden flag, which was designed in 1775. The cover is almost black, James Hetfield said "It was a simple black cover and you had to listen to the music. You wouldn’t be distracted by a drawing on the front."
