Metallica: Blast From The Past

|

Metallica_2

In Sweden you can name your kids Axl, Bengta or Gudrun, but you can’t name ‘em Metallica. Tax officials recently told a Scandinavian couple that the metal-centric moniker was "inappropriate" for their newborn. (Maybe those tax officials were privy to what went on backstage before the mighty band’s late ’80s tours). Anyway, we’ve just revitalized our VH1 Classic site and just launched our Rock Honors site (hello Ozzy, Heart, ZZ Top, and Genesis) and to celebrate we’re introducing a new franchise called "Blast From the Past" – each week the blog will feed you a classic clip that still stands tall.

To honor the plight of that beautiful Swedish baby, we’ve chosen a little sumpun sumpun called "Enter Sandman." Hetfield’s growl, Lars’ thump – all the ominous bombast is in place. The fitful footage of the kid in bed brought the band to a whole new audience in 1991. Hit "play" after the jump and have a blast.
