It's no surprise that Weezer know the 1991 Metallica classic "Enter Sandman" by heart. Hell, every single band that has ever existed plays it, usually first, during every one of their practice sessions.
What makes this recorded version so special, aside from the supreme musicianship on display after being ingrained into their psyches, is the little Weezer "Easter Egg" that can be found at the end of the guitar solo.
We think Buddy Holly would approve.
Weezer's cover is part of Metallica's 30-year celebration of their 1991 self-titled record, affectionately known as "The Black Album," which along with a re-release and massive covers album featuring 50+ artists from across genres, has also seen a Vans sneaker collaboration, and a special whiskey being offered to fans.
Off to Never Neverland.
