FOUR TEENAGE GIRLS MAKE COLOR ME BADD-STYLE VIDEO FOR METALLICA’S “UNFORGIVEN”
The bad news is that The PreZcotts, a group I have never heard of before and hope to forget within fifteen minutes of publishing this post, have not only recorded a truly horrendous cover of Metallica’s “Nothing Else Matters,” but they’ve made a video for it, too, and someone thought it was a good idea for that video to be partially in black and white and partially in exaggerated pastel colors. Because that aesthetic certainly cemented Color Me Badd’s place in music history.
The good news — besides the fact that at least they didn’t cover “Unforgiven II” or “Unforgiven III,” I mean — is that Yuto Miyazawa, the adorable Japanese tyke who has already made a name for himself playing with Ozzy Osbourne, plays the guitar solo on the cover, and he didn’t just do a note-for-note impersonation of Kirk Hammett.
