Jimmy Fallon, Metallica & The Roots Sing “Enter Sandman” With Toy Instruments

Picture your favorite  instrumental or acoustic version of a Metallica song, does it involve any kazoos? If not, you’re really missing out because when metal goes plastic, anything can happen!

In the latest segment of Jimmy Fallon’s classroom instruments, Metallica traded their signature meta sound for plastic instruments and it’s pretty epic.

On Wednesday night, Metallica joined Jimmy and The Roots in the Tonight Show Music Room to have an “Enter Sandman” jam session using classroom instruments. The song released in 1991 and while we are sure you’ve heard it tons of times, you’ve never heard it like this! The whole lot performed using kazoos, clappers, and of course a xylophone!

While the instruments were plastic, the performance was totally hardcore. Frontman and singer, James Hetfield, belted out the lyrics while playing his multicolored clarinet. Drummer Lars Ulrich, banged out the song on  toy drum set and mini cymbals.

Metallica is the latest band to join in the classroom music challenge. Other artists who joined in the fun include Adele, Carly Rae Jepsen, Idina Menzel, and Mariah Carey.
