Nickelback covered Metallica and are getting high praise for it

Nickelback is a lightning rod for hate, something that I maintain is completely unhinged and undeserved–at least at the levels at which it is projected at the band.

Now, though, Nickelback’s Metallica cover is making some hater say “You know something? This is pretty good.”

See/hear for yourself.

One Response to Nickelback covered Metallica and are getting high praise for it

  1. Joe says:

    I don’t give em much praise. It’s not a bad cover, but Sad But True is the easiest Metallica song to play. Anyone can do it decently. That’s probably why they cover it so often. They have limited talent.
