Weezer covers Metallica’s “Enter Sandman” and it’s pretty freaking great… WOW!

Metallica’s been putting together an album called “Blacklist” which is a covers album of many different bands and artists covering Metallica songs from the “Black Album” only… as in celebration of the “Black Album”. Artists from all different genres cover Metallica songs from the “Black Album” and here is Weezer with their take on Metallica’s smash hit, “Enter Sandman”.

It’s pretty freaking awesome and Weezer nailed it just like they nail all the covers they do. Is there anything Weezer can’t do? It just proves even more that Weezer can play anything.

In this cover, sounds like they played all the riffs and rhythm parts note for note a little bit but they still sound like Weezer at the same time. It sounds pretty close to the original too, though.

Wouldn’t it be awesome if Weezer did a Metallica covers album? I bet they can pull that off with no problem. So far, this is the best cover I’ve heard for Metallica “Blacklist”.

Cool Video: Metallica responds to the Mini Band covering “Enter Sandman”…

Remember the Mini Band, which has band members of 8-10 year old kids covering Metallica’s, “Enter Sandman”? The video was becoming an internet sensation, getting a lot of hits, and Metallica, the band themselves, finally picked up on it. Here is the boys in Metallica themselves in their studio watching the video. Kirk Hammett’s kids even went in there and watched it with them.

I also loved it when Kirk kind of dissed the band a little bit and James defended them by saying, “They already are incredibly great, man”. What Kirk said was kind of rude and kind of a back handed way, of saying they suck, but James and Lars turned the feedback into a more positive direction.

Metallica enjoys other musicians covering their work. They made videos responding to other people’s work in youtube before, this wasn’t the first.
