It’s safe to say kids have never been asked to go “off to never never land” like this before!
On Wednesday’s Tonight Show, heavy metal heavyweights Metallica reinvented their 1991 hit “Enter Sandman” — performing the iconic tune with Jimmy Fallon, The Roots, and a collection of classroom instruments.
Wearing a collection of Metallica, The Roots, and Tonight Show T-shirts, the group seem to be having the time of their lives — with lead singer James Hetfield playing a toy horn between vocals and drummer Lars Ulrich playing a tiny toy drum.
The Grammy winners are just one of many musical stars who have swung by the Tonight Show for a “classroom instruments” session. The trend started with Carly Rae Jepsen in June 2012 — when her version of “Call Me Maybe” made the segment a viral hit.
The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon airs weeknights (11:35 p.m. ET) on NBC.
