Watch Metallica Play Joyous ‘Enter Sandman’ With Toys on ‘Fallon’

Metal heroes deliver bustling performance alongside ‘Tonight Show’ host, the Roots

Metallica turned their ferocious 1991 hit “Enter Sandman” into a ramshackle jam, performing the track with toy instruments alongside Jimmy Fallon and the Roots on The Tonight Show

Despite coming from plastic horns and kazoos, the song’s famous riff still retained a somewhat sinister tone. James Hetfield couldn’t help but grin as he belted the song over the joyous ruckus. Meanwhile, Kirk Hammett wailed away on a melodica and Lars Ulrich pounded on a microscopic drum and smashed together a pair of tiny cymbals.

Metallica began releasing music videos for each track from their upcoming LP, Hardwired… to Self-Destruct, Wednesday afternoon. The album, Metallica’s 10th, is out November 18th. The band will mark the release with a “Blackened Friday” event – a twist on Record Store Day’s Black Friday – at hundreds of independent record stores across the U.S. Fans participating in the midnight sale will be eligible to win items like limited edition vinyl slip mats and posters; the grand prize winner will receive the new album in a variety of formats, including the deluxe box set and a test pressing of the record.
