Adam Lambert Covers Metallica's "Enter Sandman", Full Performance Video Available

Photo of Metallica

Band Photo: Metallica (?)

Pop artists seem to love covering metal's classic tracks. Celine Dion, Shakira and Madonna have done it and now you can add Adam Lambert (American Idol season 8 runner-up) to that list. During an October 17, 2010 tour stop in Auckland, New Zealand Adam Lambert busted out Metallica's biggest hit "Enter Sandman." Surprisingly, the crowd knew the words. You can view the video below:

Here's another video with slightly better sound quality, as tipped by commenter 21stCentury:

OMG Adam Lambert has a voice that can rattle the rafters. His band is amazing lots of Rock cred there!! this is no insult to Metallica but rather a compliment that he likes the song enough to sing it at one of his sold out concerts.

yenno brandedcfh420, I respect your contributions to MU and its comments but in the end of the day, this is a very interesting video was will cause discussion and bring more people into the site to view the video. So, its sort of a double edged sword.

IMO, if this was just audio only I would like it alot more but the video itself is, well.....no further comment.

Adam did that song out of respect for his bass players birthday. It came from his heart and it worked because he has an amazing voice (whose fans include Slash and Meatloaf) so all you haters just get over yourself and open your minds!! Peace <;3

Adam really has the kind of vocals that can sing anything and I think he did a great job with this song! People can deny this because either(1) they are too much of a huge fan and cannot stand seeing anyone else do covers of their heroes I feel the same of my own favorite bands, but if the cover is done well than *thumbs up*, (2)Or they just can't stand that Adam Lambert an also sing this genre, but He was sing hard Rock before Amerian Idol! and he ROCKED Led Zepplin during Rok week too!

I also remember his Led Zepplin cover on American Idol (also sent to me by my sis) and even then I knew this guy would not be easily forgotton, he has a very strong voice and i think he did a very good job.

Im aware its a cover, and quite terrible. i cant stand metallica, and to see a guy on his knees, in leather, doin what he was doing an singing the song was quite horrible, to me.

I saw this link on twitter and I had to see, i guess it might be an insult to heavy metal die hards but seriously Adam did an AWESOME job with the song and it was a one time first time thing, did it for his bass player who is a Metallica-tard. I have been following Adams career and the boy can sing anything! I do hope that this great legendary band Metallica sees this, they can see that Adam didnt fuk up the song, plus his band is AWESOME and like someone mentioned There is ROK cred in the band members.

So I didn't know I liked metal until I heard Adam do this song -- wow! I need to buy more metal! Adam can sing anything - really listen to his music - he has a unique talent. His band backs him up even on songs like this, when there was little time for rehearsal. But they also improvise on stage especially for encores - the mark of truely gifted musicians. Check out Whole Lotta Love by his band at Fantasy Springs, CA or several shows this summer - especially the Dallas show in September.

Wow people enough of the violence and hateful comments. If you want to hear more rock on the radio, you need all the exposure that you can get before rock and roll dies. It's not that serious, if you don't like Adam for whatever reason fine but son't be such a cry baby about it. I've never heard of Metallica because it's not the kind of music I listen to. After Adam Lambert covered this song I liked it so much that went and checked Metallica on youtube and I would consider purchasing their music. I'ts a win win situation.

Hey guys come on.....in todays music scene I think we are very fortunate to have Adam Lambert. Putting aside my immense pride and admiration for Adam....think about this seriously....just who else is there out there nowadays to satisfy those of us are rock lovers at heart needs? GaGa? Beiber? I don't think so. As it's already been said this cover was a one off and when I think at the combined age of some of the original rockers out there my heart sinks. Let Adam have this one guys.....he really did a magnificent job of it and I for one hope he does more way ahead in the future

I've been a huge metal head all my life. I didn't even like or listen to mainstream pop until 2-3 ago. Having said that, there are many metal fans who considered Enter Sandman a "pop" song and not a true metal song so why not have the best pop male vocalist in the world right now cover it? He can out sing any of the best metal wailers out there. Yep, he did it Adam style and he kissed a boy..a cute one too!...on the middle of it but who cares? He did Metallica proud. FAR better than any metal cover bands I've ever seen. And why are you surprised the audience knew the words? Adams fans are diverse and lovers of music. His band is diverse as well with some serious rock cred behind them. I loved it. Good for Adam and good for Metallica.

The only metal band I ever liked is Judas Priest but after watching Adam do this song I went to Itunes and bought Metallicas version and so did a lot of other people it seems. So Adam has introduced more people to this band, can't be a bad thing. As for Adams band they are well versed in this kind of music. Monte has five Prong albums to his credit and Tommy Joe has the creds as well. Adam can sing anything and I really liked this song.

Adam's a rocker at heart....but the music industry will have none of it. I was never much of a metalhead...more along the lines of LZ, EL&P, Trower, Beck. I can't get enough of this guy's voice....from ballads to rock and everything in between. Must admit though, turning to a pop station in the hopes of hearing him makes me want to poke my eyes out with a branding iron. His voice powers out a lot of hard rock, including this little b-day surprise.

Adam Lambert did a great job. Don't know why it's surprising that Lambert's fans know the words to Enter Sandman. Much of his fanbase are rock fans who only listen to pop stations because of him. I enjoy Adam Lambert as well as Metallica, U2, Pink Floyd, Pearl Jam, GNR, Aerosmith, etc. I do not follow any other Pop stars, just Adam. For those negative posters...don't be such music snobs. Artists are constantly crossing genres. It's the way the music business is today. Only thing is Adam Lambert excels in which ever genre he chooses to play. Thank you for posting these two great vids. I'm sure Metallica just picked up more fans because of Lambert and your site. I also enjoy this site. :)

Amazing how much hatred and mis-understanding there is surrounding gays still. This footage was filmed at a live show that people paid to see. Those same people might enjoy seeing him do his flambuoyant routine. You were not forced to watch this video with a gun against your head either. Conclusion: if you're p***ed that a pop star is covering metal songs...fine. So be it. Vent your deepest concerns here. But judging a mans musical ability based on his sexuality is beyond ignorant. This is a website about MUSIC, not a hot topic debate about celebrities sexuality. People need to stop judging artists' personal lives/preferences when deciding if they like/support a band. Take a look at Tool for a prime example of a band about the music and nothing else.

In 2010 i think we can get over other people's sexuality. David Bowie did it in the 70 in the Diamond Dogs era, wearing dresses and boas, he claimed to be tri-sexual, as in he'd try anything. No there is a man with an amazing voice.

Hellrat, Adam was performing for his fans not for you. I doubt that he cares about your backlash. He is selling out concerts domestically and internationally so as long as his fans are happy it is all good. He is new and this is his first tour but 75,000 in Canada, 20,000 in Singapore, 16,000 in LA will make it less likely that he will care about cred with a few posters on this site.

And yet, despite your view of the cosmic insignificance of hellrat's disdain you choose to post your thoughts in the same insignificant way as him.

On another note, pop fans sure are a lot more mature and polite than I remember them being.

It's interesting how something like this would have been a one-off event and hardly talked about were it not for the Internet. Certainly the publicity he's getting from it isn't hurting him and people care enough to share the story on social networks, etc.

I'm sure a lot of metalheads had never heard of Adam Lambert up til now, much like I had remained blissfully ignorant of Lady Gaga for a long time until finally being exposed to her music shortly before the metal remixes started making rounds.

Adam has a terrible voice and no one gives a rats a$$ if he likes the shaft. Being gay is pretty accepted these days, especially when you're older. Soooooo stop being ignorant and realize that none of us are bashing on him because he's a homosexual and that we're bashing on him because his voice and music are all a big pile of dog sh!t.

Branded: even though I don't like his sound I wouldn't say it was a terrible cover. Considering he only rehearsed the song once and barely knew the words...he added some really impressive vocals to a fairly bland and extremely over played rock-radio hit. IMO a cover shouldn't sound exactly like the original. The covering artist should add his/her own style into the mix. You may not like Flamebert, nor do I, but he definately added his touch to the song and didn't miss a note...like his voice or not that wasn't out of tune singing...

Besides that, the performance was terrible: He sounds like a female pop singer and watching his movements and mannerisms almost made me puke. The only bright spot was that the band could at least handle the riffs. This just goes to show how insane our society is these days, endorsing such terrible musicians......

I'm down with TAG's take on Kill Em' All. I don't think any of us would be here if KEA wasn't released, when it was released. It definately opened some doors that were previously sealed shut. There was a metal scene and yes there were bands like Slayer, Exodus, Venom etc... But KEA paved the way for our current way of life. Maybe it's just the effects of me watching Hot Tub Time Machine last night though. lol.

What about And Justice For All...?
The best Metallica record, hands down!

Production is sh**, but the music is really good.

I dont consider myself to be a huge Metallica fan, but I do appreciate a few albums and especially what they did for metal in its infancy

I like the production on AJFA, I think in todays realm of maximized and homogenized music it at least had a personality that fit perfectly to the music.

hellrat: It had its moments for sure. I'm gonna recommend it.

I didn't care for AJFA. Maybe because i'm a Cliff elitist and they dumped the bass out of the mix (Jason was playing it, but as I understand it Cliff had already written it).

I'm not much of a Metallica fan after MOP. Up until AJFA though I was a full on Metalli-sheep. We still do Seek and Destroy on various occasions.

ya buddy^ we heard you the first time...and its pretty much already been said bout a hundred times, eh?

as far as Justice is concerned....i actually like the record better than Puppets, and as much as Ride....it was also the turd danish's zenith as a drummer, for whatever that's worth....but i'm with you on the cliff snobbery BG, and the fact that newkid was pretty much a non-element in the justice mix...

if burton HAD played on that record, i think it would have been fvckin all-time....but then, if our lost friend had been able to stay around, metallica would probably never turned into remotely the absolute junkshow it has devolved into

yes, i'm afraid that horrific night in Sverige was the beginning of the end

and now there's THIS fvckin crap out there

goddamn
