The lyrics to Metallica’s “Enter Sandman” are pretty dark, but the song sounds much lighter on classroom instruments like the kazoo and hand clappers.
Metallica teamed up with the Roots and host Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show” for an impressive rendition of their hit song, showing you don’t need top-notch instruments for good music, though that might be thanks to the world-class musicians.
