Metallica Plays Star-Spangled Banner Prior to Stanley Cup Finals Game 4 (Video)

Metallica Star-Spangled Banner

Tonight, prior to Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals, the San Jose Sharks welcomed Metallica’s James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett to the SAP Center to perform the Star-Spangled Banner.  And in true Metallica fashion, they absolutely killed it.

Check it out:

Unfortunately for the home team, Metallica’s performance failed to pump them up like their fans may have hoped, as they fell to the Penguins, 3-1.  And now they find themselves in an identical 3-1 deficit in the series with Game 5 set for Thursday in Pittsburgh.
