Listen: “To Live Is to Yeah” Adds James Hetfield “YEAH!”s to Metallica’s Instrumental Classic


James Hetfield’s place in history as Metal’s Most Upbeat Lyricist is already assured. Still, if you need a reminder of just how much joie de vivre the Metallica frontman exudes, Lars von Retriever‘s new video, “To Live Is to Yeah,”  will more than serve your purpose. The track — in case the title didn’t give it away — adds vocals to Metallica’s instrumental classic, “To Live Is to Die,” in the form of Hetfield “YEAH!”s culled from other recordings. Silly? Yes. But it’s two minutes you won’t spend working today!

Just say YEAH!:
