Song: Enter Sandman (1991)
I'm not flaking on my tribute to understandablish censorship, but with 164 songs (+ all of RATM), I can pick my spots. We've got ourselves a nice little Sunday morning loophole. I included the original so I could P.S. something a little more timely. I haven't had the chance to listen to the entire 50+ songs Metallica Blacklist (50 something artists teamed up to cover the black album for its 30th anniversary), but obvi Mac's cover is my favorite. I saw him cover "Enter Sandman" in Boston (2019), but his live rendition had a little bit of the DeMarco flare; the album version is a word-for-word cover. I think you could get away with calling this a cross-genre cover since Mac usually is not this heavy, but boy, oh boy, does it kick some ass.
