We’re off to Rivers Cuomo land: Weezer’s wah-tastic cover of Enter Sandman is here

Weezer have shared their version of the Metallica classic Enter Sandman. It’s the latest track to arrive from the monolithic Black Album covers tribute, The Metallica Blacklist, which will feature over 50 artists covering songs from the 1991 LP.

Other artists contributing to the project include St. Vincent, Biffy Clyro, Phoebe Bridgers, IDLES, Mac DeMarco, Weezer, Rina Sawayama and Slipknot’s Corey Taylor.
Weezer’s cover of Enter Sandman is relatively faithful to the original. To hear Rivers Cuomo crank up the metal and see an accompanying spooky music video, hit play below.

The album’s proceeds are all going to charity, with individual songs going towards both Metallica’s All Within My Hands Foundation and a charity of the artist’s choice. In this case, it’s the California Vipassana Center.
The Metallica Blacklist arrives in full on 10 September. Its full tracklist is below.
