Motorhead Day Celebrated With Animated Video For Metallica Cover

May 8 — Today is Motorhead Day.

In celebration of the day, BMG has premiered a new animated video for the band’s cover of Metallica’s timeless single, ‘Enter Sandman.’ The video actually steps up the original video, giving even more life to the story in the song as a young man faces nightmarish and hellish creatures in his sleep.

As the evil creatures try to take the boy, Motorhead’s “Warpig” mascot comes to life and defends the young man from the dark entities, banishing them back to where they came from. This all happens as the band’s take on Metallica’s hit single plays over the visualization.

The cover, which according to information about the video’s premiere, was originally included in a music compilation for Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) in 1998, stays largely true to its source material. The main difference is the placement of front man Lemmy Kilmister’s vocals in place of Metallica front man James Hetfield. The overall sound is even richer (not in a bad way) than the original, thanks to the song’s production.
