Top 10 METALLICA Viral Videos
- Posted by RobInjection on June 22, 2012
Metallica is presenting their very own festival this weekend, the Orion Music and More festival. Metal Injection is pumped to be making the trek down to Atlantic City to hang out with a bunch of metal heads in Bader Field and we'll be covering all the action with a full video report coming next week. In celebration of the festival, and to lighten the mood on this Friday afternoon, we present the top 10 funny/silly/awesome videos to feature Metallica in some way. Let's begin:
This is too adorable to be any lower than #1 on the list. Look, everybody knows "Enter Sandman", some of us know it so well, that the sound of it is almost painful, because of how many times we've heard it. But there is no denying, seeing a group of kids doing their rendition of the song almost gives it new life. Metallica were SO impressed by this, they recorded a video message sent to the kids to thank them and invited the kids (and their parents, of course) to come see Metallica live.
Over the years Metallica put out a lot of tracks that have the words death, dead, die or dying in them. One man made it his mission to show you just how often the band says the words. It's really funny and also interesting to note the difference in production from album to album. See also: Megadeth likes killing and Slayer Likes Satan.
This one is not as favorable as some of the other videos on here, but hack comedian Neil Hamburger is one of my favorites and when I first heard this anti-joke, I lost my shit.
This guy is super-fucking talented. He totally took the Metallica classic "Master Of Puppets" and made it his own. This is constantly one of the most viewed videos on our site.
I am partial to this one, because I am the one who created it. Last year, footage was posted online of Kirk kicking balls around at the end of a Metallica show. There was a young girl too close to the action and she got accidentally kicked. The girl is ok, so I thought why not make light of the situation? Yes, I am a horrible person and I am going to hell.
This man is one talented blower.
Equally as awesome as the kazoo version. Done by the mash up master, Andy Rehfeldt. Watch more of his killer mashups here.
I don't think an explanation is needed for this one.
Pretty fucking awesome! Also check out their Megadeth cover.
Metal Misha and Sinister Sasha are two huge Metallica fans from Russia. The problem is they've only heard one album from the band, "St. Anger" or as they say it, "Stanger." What happens when they watch the classic first-ever Metallica video? Fast forward to 4:45 to find out! Watch more Moscow Metal Minute.
If you can't make it out to Orion, Fuse will be live-streaming their performance on Youtube. Come back next week for our full video report!
