Metallica’s done a lot of brilliant things in their career. They have made or been involved with at least four perfect works of art. Their first three albums and the documentary Some Kind of Monster are cultural touchstones that will be looked to and enjoyed for generations.

They’ve also done some things that have not been so great. In 1999, they led the charge against mp3-sharing platform Napster, which alienated some fans — and got some us kicked off the site, not that we’re holding any grudges. They also released St. Anger, which come on.

Jimmy Fallon loves to play games and have fun. He likes to make politicians wear funny pants and give noogies to a reality gameshow host turned most powerful person on the planet. It’s his thing.

And now there’s this, a video of Metallica performing “Enter Sandman” with Jimmy Fallon and The Roots on classroom instruments. Only time will tell if this falls into their works of cultural touchstones or cultural blunders. But honestly, it’ll probably just be a cute thing that makes a lot of people smile for three minutes. Enjoy!

Here is a pug playing the drums to Metallica's 'Enter Sandman.'

There is really nothing else much to say, except that this is the greatest pug that has ever lived.

Here's the pug in GIF form in case you're into that sort of thing.

If you too believe that pugs are the superior breed of dog, check out our pug archives. Miles and miles of slobbery, snorting pugs for as far as the eye can see.



While we will probably never find a Garfield spin off as hilarious and existentially depressing as Garfield Minus Garfield, this comes close.

The artist behind Hetfield the Cat took the pretty great idea of using Metallica lyrics to express the despondent life of America's most overwrought cartoon cat.

Here are a few examples.

Let your troubles melt away with the smooth-jazzed-up rendition of Metallica's "Enter Sandman," exactly how the Metal Gods never, ever intended it.

Sure matches up with the video, though.

Some kids bust out "Bohemian Rhapsody" with dad on the way to elementary school.

And some kids sing along to dad's acoustic version of Metallica's "Nothing Else Matters" while they're still in diapers.

Funk and metal, beautifully intertwined. Play on, Herb-tallica. Become the master of our hearts.
