Miley Cyrus turned into a rock star at Glastonbury, covering NIN and Metallica

I’ll say this about Miley Cyrus: She’ll try anything once.

Last Sunday was a good day for metal at Glastonbury featuring both BABYMETAL and Bring Me the Horizon. And then came Miley on the Pyramid Stage. Along with a performance of “Black Dog” by Led Zeppelin, she also took on Metallica’s “Nothing Else Matters”…

…but also “Head Like a Hole” by Nine Inch Nails.

That sprang from “On a Roll,” a positive re-write of the song that her Black Mirror character sang in an episode earlier this year. She sang that version at Glastonbury, too.
