Classic Albums: Metallica is a documentary about the making of the eponymous album. It was released on November 6, 2001 by Eagle Rock Entertainment, months after bassist Jason Newsted left the band.

The documentary of the making of this remarkable album covers the story behind the creation of the album, including exclusive interviews with band members James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett and Jason Newsted, and their new producer Bob Rock, as well as archived footage of the recording process. Most of this archive footage was taken from the first part of the 1992 documentary "A Year and a Half in the Life of Metallica".

The documentary features both original multi-tracks and demo recordings, along with the five singles from the album namely: "Enter Sandman", "Sad But True", "The Unforgiven", "Wherever I May Roam" and "Nothing Else Matters".
