This video of Metallica performing Enter Sandman with kids' instruments is our favourite thing today

Who doesn’t love a remix of a classic nostalgic tune?

Especially when it’s done by all of Metallica. And Jimmy Fallon. In a tiny studio. With children’s toy instruments.

It doesn’t really need any more words than that…

Metallica joins Jimmy and The Roots in… – The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon | Facebook

The clip from The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon posted on Facebook racked up almost 30 million viewers in less than a day, and most of the (60,000 plus) commenters love it almost as much as we do.

One clever person, Kellie Shannon, even requested Jimmy to perform more similar acts with other musical legends and pull them all together into a festive charity album. Now THAT is a stocking filler we’d buy.

Thanks, Kellie. Thanks, Jimmy and Metallica. And, once again, thank you, internet.
