ICYMI: Metallica On ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’

Last night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!  was dominated by Metallica, who sat down for an interview with Kimmel, played a hilarious trivia game with a superfan and killed it on Kimmel’s outdoor stage.

The band discussed a number of things during their interview, from the origin story of their logo, to what their kids think of Metallica and why it took the band so long to release a new album.

Metallica on Their First New Album in Eight Years

The guys from Metallica explain why it took them eight years to come out with a new album.

They then played “Who Knows Metallica” with superfan Dave, who flew from Ohio to see the band on Kimmel.  Dave clearly knew his Metallica trivia, but the band definitely took liberties to make sure they won the game.

A superfan goes head to banging head with his favorite band Metallica to find out if he knows more about the band than the band does about itself.

Finally, Metallica performed two songs on the show:  “Atlas, Rise!” off their new album Hardwired…To Self-Destruct  and the classic “For Whom The Bell Tolls.”
