The tab I am looking at says D C G F A D so is it in Drop D Drop C or is this right?

huh, and here I thought all Metallica songs were standard tunning up until St. Anger's abundance of Drop C songs.

it's D standard - every string is tuned down a tone (2 frets), so that the lowest note is D but the intervals between the strings remain the same as standard tuning

EDIT: and metallica also used Eb standard on the Black album.

No, it's not in E. Definitely D Standard.

Listen to that song and any other pre-Load metallica song save The Thing That Should Not Be.

Don't trust the songbook.

Drop tunings are basically, the bottom string is dropped, so it's the same note as the 4th string.
