When you’ve played a song so many times over the course of your career, you probably think you can play it backwards. Well, Metallica tried it.

In a rare video posted to YouTube recently, the four members of Metallica are messing around backstage when they try and play one of their biggest hits, ‘Enter Sandman,’ backwards. And, honestly, it still kinda sounds like ‘Enter Sandman.’
