According to Blabbermouth.net, the four members of Metallica recorded a video message ahead of this past Saturday's Virginia Tech Hokies football game against Wake Forest. Check it out below. "Hey, Hokie Nation, time to kick some butt. This is Metallica. Start jumping," Metallica frontman James Hetfield can be heard yelling in the clip before the distinctive guitar riffs of "Enter Sandman" begin. According to The Washington Post, "Enter Sandman" has been Virginia Tech football's unofficial theme song since the 2000 season, blaring over the Lane Stadium loudspeakers when the Hokies emerge from the tunnel. The video was the result of almost two years of work by Bruce Gearhart, a former vice president at EMI Music, and his friend, Marc Reiter of Q Prime management, the company that represents Metallica. Virginia Tech's director of football operations, John Ballein, said the team plans to use the Metallica introduction before the Hokies' remaining two home games, against Boston College in two weeks and next month during a Thursday night game against North Carolina.
