Metallica, The Roots, and Jimmy Fallon perform “Enter Sandman” with toy instruments — watch

Fun late-night bit in support of new album Hardwired...To Self-Destruct

In September, Metallica appeared on The Tonight Show in support of their forthcoming album, Hardwired…To Self-Destruct. Along with a proper performance of their new single “Moth to Flame”, they dusted off “Enter Sandman” with The Roots and host Jimmy Fallon using nothing but toy instruments. Footage of the latter has finally surfaced and, well, it’s both kick-ass and cute. Tapping into their inner child, James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich seemed to enjoy themselves quite a bit; I wouldn’t be surprised if those toys ended up on their Christmas wish lists.

Replay the fun bit up above. Double album Hardwired…To Self-Destruct arrives tomorrow, November 18th.
