According to accepted legend, James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich officially formed the band Metallica on October 28, 1981. They are one of the most important metal bands ever, and probably were most responsible for the genre evolving instead of dying after the 1980s.
They performed lots of covers. And people covered them. In honor of that, I provide tons of Metallica covers to you all today. Today: Other people do Metallica. Tomorrow: Metallica does other people.
Starting with And Justice for All by the great Umphrey’s McGee, then hit next for a slew of additional covers.
