Metallica’s Enter Sandman Has Been Recreated In Animal Crossing
We’ve already seen many metalheads getting in on the Animal Crossing: New Horizons fun, with characters donning badass Slipknot, Rammstein, and Slayer merch to show off their favourite bands as they explore their own little worlds. Now, one gamer has one-upped everyone else by making Metallica’s Enter Sandman their island tune.
For the uninitiated, these tunes are basically just a way to customise the music that the user hears when they talk to someone, enter a building, or when an hour passes. According to Gamer Journalist, some popular options so far have been the Avengers theme, Frozen’s Do You Want To Build A Snowman?, the Michael Myers Halloween theme, and the Doctor Who theme (we sense a common denominator here).
This Reddit user, however, opted for something altogether heavier. Well – not that much heavier, given the cute melody that comes from the frog. Nevertheless, Metallica’s 1991 smash single Enter Sandman makes for a pretty ace island tune, and we’re excited to see what other metal numbers might now be reworked into Animal Crossing form…
In other ’Tallica news, the band recently launched #MetallicaMondays, a weekly concert series in which they will unveil a full stream of an old live performance via YouTube for fans to enjoy and break their boredom.
