It was Metallica Night at AT&T Park in San Francisco on Friday when the Dodgers paid a visit to play the Giants.
The legendary rock 'n' rollers did their best Jimi Hendrix impersonation with an electrified version of "The Star Spangled Banner."

Didn’t think I was going to like it but it was actually more true to the song than the way quite a few of the younger performers butcher it with all their embelishments.
Pleasantly surprised. They did it proud.
I wonder who is going to sing it at tonight’s Mayweather vs Gurerro fight. Usually they get some pop star who disguises their lack of talent or range by bending the notes and jazzing it up.
Dave Mustaine (One of the original Metallica members) also did a nice job with it.
Well it beats playing it with kazoos. Or maybe not.
At least it beats Borat doing the Kazakhstan anthem.....
They did a great job! Good game, too. Buster Posey won it with a home run in the bottom of the ninth. Dodgers-Giants is always fun!
Thank you, James and Kirk.
Takes me back to a time when my country wasn’t a bunch of sniveling pussies.
Exactly. Their rendition wasn’t disrespectful, just metal.
