We know how great Radiohead sounds played using the sounds from Mario 64. Now enjoy MawinSwag’s 64-bit chiptune version of Metallica’s 1988 album And Justice for All. We can totally imagine Blackened playing during the Dark World level while Bowser laughs maniacally, and One would be perfect as Mario explores Princess Peach’s castle.

As part of his “Should I/Can I Cover It?” series, musician Thomas Benjamin Wild Esq. performs a track that clearly wasn’t designed to be played on a tiny 4-string ukulele. But the old-fashioned musician gave it the old college try regardless. If Thomas looks familiar, it’s because he has No More F**ks to Give.
The Metallica song Master of Puppets already slaps pretty hard, but it sounds downright insane when performed on a bass guitar while slapping the strings. Musician Charles Berthoud absolutely crushes it with this performance that sounds kind of like a Red Hot Chili Peppers version of the song.
During their October 2022 stadium show in São Paulo, Brazil, the Rockin’ 1000 assembled an informal band of musicians from around the world. Their performance of Metallica’s Enter Sandman brought down the house with infectious energy. You’ll want to crank up the volume all the way for this one.
Can’t tell if this is true or dream… Bill McClintock’s latest musical mashup imagines what might have happened if Metallica and Men at Work were the same band and created this oddly pleasing combination of Down Under and One. Does anyone else have a taste for a Vegemite sandwich?

For those too young to remember, Leo Sayer was a maestro of disco-pop music in the 1970s. To make things interesting, mashup artist Bill McClintock melded the pop sounds of You Make Me Feel Like Dancing with Metallica’s Sad But True for a combination as delicious as chocolate and peanut butter.
The main riff from Metallica’s Enter Sandman isn’t that hard to play on an electric guitar. But it’s much trickier to hold a pick and get the fret positions right while wearing rubber gloves. JMAPMUSIC wanted to see how many pairs of gloves he could wear before the song became unrecognizable.
Singer Anthony Vincent is a master of voices, so it only makes sense that he’d take on Metallica’s Master of Puppets with his versatile vocal cords.

The Metallica track One is already a pretty grim and evocative song.

He’s also covered Dream Theater’s rock opera Lost Not Forgotten.
