Metal giants Metallica have once again strayed off the usual path with a semi-acoustic performance of staple rock classics during MusiCares MAP Fund benefit show.
The event took place this Monday (May 12) at Los Angeles' Club Nokia, marking the benefit's 10th anniversary. This year's honorees were Ozzy Osbourne of Black Sabbath and Village Studios owner Jeff Greenberg.
Back to the 'Tallica performance, the group chugged through a total of four covers, ranging from the Beatles and Rare Earth to Deep Purple and Ozzy himself. The footage was quick to surface, make sure to check it out below, along with the full set list.
"We are so proud to be a part of the tenth annual MusiCares MAP Fund benefit concert. It's no secret that Ozzy has been a major presence throughout our entire lives and we are so humbled and honored to be with Ozzy for this special evening," the band stated.
Ozzy ultimately took the stage as well, joining forces with Slash for yet another rockin' performance.
