Listen to Metallica's metal national anthem at the NBA Finals

This rocked.

Metallica exited the light and entered the night to shred the national anthem on two guitars at Game 5 of the 2015 NBA Finals. Darkness soon imprisoned Oracle Arena, and horror was all they could see. Game 5 is so close, no matter how far. Obey your national anthem masters.

(Seriously, this anthem was awesome. More metal bands doing national anthems, please).
