Sterogum: Watch Metallica Celebrate The 35th Anniversary Of Master Of Puppets By Blasting Through “Battery” On Colbert
Yesterday was the 35th anniversary of Metallica’s third album Master Of Puppets. Master Of Puppets is one of the all-time great thrash metal classics, and it’s also the best album that Metallica ever made. (This is a point of some controversy, but it’s also entirely true.) To mark the occasion, Metallica were musical guests on last night’s edition of Stephen Colbert’s Late Show, and they spent their evening ripping their way through the Master Of Puppets opening sprint “Battery,” a song that’s basically guaranteed to jack your pulse way up.
