Metallica paid tribute to some of Pasadena, Calif.’s favorite native sons over the weekend at the Rose Bowl.

The group included a cover of Van Halen‘s 1978 favorite “Runnin’ With The Devil” during its Saturday night (July 29) show at the venue, sharing a clip of the song on its Instagram account.

Metallica is off until Friday (August 4) in Glendale, Ariz., and has WorldWired Tour dates currently booked into May of 2018.
