Watch Metallica’s James Hetfield Rock Out to Motörhead’s Ace Of Spades In His Car

Don’t let the fame fool you — Papa Het likes to blast Lemmy with the windows down, just like us.

On his rare days off, Metallica frontman James Hetfield just wants what every metal fans want: to roll down the street blasting Motörhead. On the celebrated thrash band’s Instagram, the singer uploaded a video with a clip of himself driving out in the free world, fanboying out to none other than Ace of Spades by Lemmy and co.

Though we don’t suggest everyone try this at home, James seems to be an expert at driving while playing air guitar and singing along to this classic track from a band that has without a doubt caused a great many speeding tickets. Plus, you can just hear how happy he is in the video!

Watch James pay homage to the greats below:

Metallica are currently embarking on their extensive WorldWired tour throughout Europe with the beloved Swedish modern metal ghoulers Ghost and Norwegian rockers Bokassa, whom Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich claims “blew his head off” the first time he heard them. Right after that, the thrash metal quartet will be heading to Australia with Iowa legends Slipknot.
