Here we are again. Another Hump Day, another Inappropriate Instrumental.
Last week, I featured a guy covering Slayer on a banjo.
This week, we take a look at the mighty Metallica!

I was first introduced to Metallica the same way I would imagine most people my age (whose parents aren’t crazy metalheads) were: By hearing them on the radio as a youngster. First, it was Enter Sandman, then Until It Sleeps, and maybe the odd time, One. Then, once my musical brain began to expand I started discovering more and more, and even started playing Metallica covers with my band.
I’m particularly fond of their 1983 debut album KIll ‘Em All. The first time I heard it in its entirety, I remember saying to my roommate, “What the hell happened to Metallica?” To which he replied, “They should have started and ended with this album.”

In saying that, I don’t mean any disrespect to Metallica. I have a tremendous amount of respect for them as musicians. I mean, hell, they’ve been doing it longer than I’ve been alive and have produced some great music that has certainly enhanced my life. This album just seems to stand out above the rest I guess.
Today we feature the third track of the album, Motorbreath.
I think it’s about time I featured something being used as an instrument that isn’t really intended to be. I was pleased to find that the person that made this (YouTube user Gigawipf)has a whole bunch of videos like it. I present to you Metallica’s Motorbreath as played on 12 floppy disk computer drives.
Not only does it rock, it brings back nostalgic memories in me of playing Space Quest II: Vohaul’s Revenge.

Until next week, remember to search for teeth, and “plaque conspiracy” … and Metallica.
