Last night, Metallica played the fourth night of their five-night residency on Craig Ferguson’s not-long-for-this-world Late Late Show. They’d been busy the three previous three nights, running through “Hit The Lights,” “Fuel,” and the great “For Whom The Bell Tolls.” Last night, they trotted out arguably their best-known song, the 1991 anthem “Enter Sandman.” That is a pretty rude song to play to a bunch of television viewers who are trying not to fall asleep! But the performance pretty much ruled, and it’s still fun to watch James Hetfield doing the evil-laughter thing a couple of decades later. Watch it below.
Are they saving “One” for tonight? I hope they’re saving “One” for tonight.
