“The Unforgiven” is a song by the American heavy metal band Metallica. It was released as the third single from their eponymous fifth album Metallica. Though one of the slower tracks on the album, its chord progression is distinctly one of the heavier. The song has since spawned two sequels (both in name proper as well as thematically), in the form of “The Unforgiven II”, from the album ReLoad, and “The Unforgiven III”, from the album Death Magnetic.And there is Unforgiven IV in the Bonus Album Unforgiven.
