Media links man who murdered wife and daughters with Metallica

Christopher Watts is a 33-year-old American who was sentenced to life in prison for murdering the pregnant woman and his 3 and 4 year old daughters. He pleaded guilty not to receive death penalty, and he wont be eligible for parole.


But an unusual occurrence caught the attention of the media, as a local station obtained the full police report, and it is reported that Watts murdered his wife, Shannan and their two daughters, Bella and Celeste, in August, and in one of the intervals between the time he committed the crimes and buried the bodies in an abandoned pit, Watts found time to access the internet and look for the lyrics of Metallica’s “Battery.”

Of course it was not long before some sites established a connection.

The song lyrics, released by Metallica in the 1986 “Master of Puppets”, have a passage that says:

“Smashing through the boundaries
Lunacy has found me
Cannot stop the battery
Pounding out aggression
Turns into obsession
Cannot kill the battery
Cannot kill the family
Battery is found in me

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
