It’s no coincidence that the members of ‘Metallica’ are huge fans of the MLB team, San Francisco Giants. The biggest metal band in the world came out of the bay area, pioneering its incredible thrash metal scene back in the 80’s. Like most of us, they hold a place in their hearts for the place they were brought up in.
This weekend The Giants held their third annual ‘Metallica Day’ as the band members, dressed in the team’s uniforms, joined the field. James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett rocked The national anthem on guitars and drummer Lars Ulrich threw the first pitch. Looks like it was a great rockin’ day in the sun, huh? The Giants also came out victorious that day as they defeated the LA Angels 5-4.
No doubt: The combination between metal music and baseball is very natural, as the jerseys and baseball caps fitted the gang perfectly. To celebrate, Here is another winning moment by Metallica. Reminisce and play along with ‘Hero Of The Day’ as the chords and lyrics flows perfectly with the music.
