A new YouTube video has reimagined Metallica‘s ‘Master Of Puppets’ in 50 different styles – watch it below.
The new video is the brainchild of YouTuber and musician Anthony Vincent, who has recently brought us such delights as Radiohead’s ‘Creep’ in the style of Deftones and a jazz cover of Foo Fighters’ ‘Everlong’.
For the new version, ‘Master Of Puppets’ is recreated in the style of 50 different bands or genres, including Harry Styles, Daft Punk, The Weeknd, Linkin Park, Soundgarden and many, many more, including Vincent’s own cat.

A huge number of artists have recently been covering Metallica, with 53 bands and musicians contributing covers of tracks from Metallica’s 1991 classic ‘The Black Album’ to celebrate its 30th anniversary.
Reviewing ‘The Metallica Blacklist’, NME wrote: “This is a record that makes ‘DONDA’ look positively zippy. Inevitably, the record descends into a series of multi-band cover-offs, the listener acting as Caesar, deciding which ‘winning’ version should really have made the cut. Half the time you feel like you’re doing the compiler’s job for them.”
In terms of new Metallica music, drummer Lars Ulrich recently said that “there’s new music coming” from the band, but explained “there’s nothing cohesive” yet in terms of the follow-up to 2016’s ‘Hardwired… To Self-Destruct’.
