"The Unforgiven II" was written by James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich and Kirk Hammett and appears on the album ReLoad as a sequel to "The Unforgiven" (which appears on the album Metallica). Both songs have similar musical themes. They both start with the horn which is supposed to be taken from For a Few Dollars More. The chord progression during the verses is strikingly similar to the one used in the chorus on "The Unforgiven", and certain parts of the song bear a strong resemblance to Iron Maiden's 1982 song, Children of the Damned. Over a decade later, the song was followed by a second sequel, "The Unforgiven III", from the album Death Magnetic.
