"No Leaf Clover" is the eighth song on the live album S&M by Metallica and the San Francisco Symphony. The song (along with "− Human") was one of two new pieces completed for the band's collaboration with the San Francisco Symphony in 1999. It begins with an intro section played by the orchestra, before entering into a clean guitar part by James Hetfield. The rest of the piece alternates between clean verses and choruses backed by heavily distorted guitars. It was the band's fourth No. 1 hit on the Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. It stayed at No. 1 for seven consecutive weeks. It was also featured in the trailer created by the distributor A.D. Vision for their DVD releases of the TV series Farscape.

The song "No Leaf Clover" featured as a playable track in the 2009 music game Guitar Hero: Metallica.
