The song was released in as the third and final single from the album. For the first 20 seconds of the song there are a series of sound effects with a battle theme, an artillery barrage and helicopter are heard and continues slightly over a clean tone guitar intro by Hetfield before Kirk Hammett comes in over the top with a clean-toned solo.
Ulrich's drums come in and continues until each chorus, when the guitars become heavy and distorted before returning to clean. There is a second solo by Hammett halfway through the song, before lyrics cut out and the song gradually gets more heavy and distorted until the "machine gun" guitar build up played alongside double bass drums before the next, often highly praised, guitar solo by Welcome To The World - Blackjack - Worlds Apart, and a final dual solo by Hammett and Hetfield.
InJames Hetfield told Guitar World that he wrote the song's opening B-G chord change miscalling it a ' modulation ' based on an idea prompted by the Venom song "Buried Alive" from their second studio album, Black Metal. I had been fiddling around with that B-G modulation for a long time.

Three versions of the "One" music video were made; the first the longest, album version contained scenes of both the band and scenes from the movie. The second was simply a shortened version of the first, and the third, often known as the "jammin' version", lacked scenes from the movie the song and video fades at the last bridge in the third version.
The video features the band members in a typical early Metallica fashion: playing as if in rehearsal in some sort of warehouse, in tight formation around Lars Ulrich 's drum kitand dressed in casual street clothes and with long untamed hair.
Newsted plays bass with his fingers at the start of the song, but later switches to a pick.
