There has always been a strong link between the pioneering Motörhead and mighty Metallica. A unique bond of friendship between the two has stood over the decades, with Metallica even playing Lemmy’s 50th birthday in 1995 all dressed up as the great man himself, under the moniker of The Lemmys. In turn, Motörhead have paid homage to some of Metallica’s finest compositions, even winning a Grammy for their cover of ‘Whiplash’ in 2004.
However their cover of one of the most iconic hard rock classics of all time, ‘Enter Sandman’, has been largely overlooked until now. Originally recorded for an ECW Wrestling compilation in 1998 (which was also nominated for a Grammy), the song has been unavailable outside of the original CD release. But Motörhead Day is the perfect opportunity to shine new light on their brilliant take on the Metallica original.
In this incredible new animated video, take a horrifying nocturnal journey through the nightmares of a child who is haunted by the evil sandman in his dreams, and is ultimately saved by the powers of the inimitable Motörhead ‘Warpig’. The video was produced by Mulberry Creative.
Motörhead’s version of ‘Enter Sandman’ is also available on all streaming platforms now, including Dolby Atmos on Apple Music and 360 Spatial Audio on Amazon. There’s also an exclusive, limited edition 7″ single with etched Warpig B-side with exclusive merch and bundles, available in the official Motörhead store while stocks last!
