Last night, the so called “Big Four” of the ’80s thrash-metal boom — that’d be Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, and Anthrax — came together at Yankee Stadium to play only their second-ever U.S. show together, following the one they played in California a few months back. And during Metallica’s encore, members of all four bands, as well as ’80s peers Exodus, joined each other onstage to cover Motörhead’s fast-growl classic “Overkill.” A ton of videos of the performance are floating around on YouTube, but all of them sadly look and sound like ass. The best one that we could find is below.
Conceptually speaking, it’s a shame they didn’t get anyone from Overkill up there as well.
