Watch METALLICA's HETFIELD, HAMMETT Perform Anthem Before Game 4 Of Stanley Cup Final

June 7, 2016

METALLICA's James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett performed the U.S. national anthem Monday night (June 6) before Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final between the San Jose Sharks and Pittsburgh Penguins at SAP Center in San Jose, California. Video footage of their rendition can now be seen below.

Each of the guitars used during last night's performance was signed by the members of METALLICA, displayed on the concourse during the game and then donated to the Sharks Foundation to be auctioned off. Fans will be able to bid on the guitars until Wednesday, June 15, with proceeds going to Little Kids Rock and the Ronald McDonald House at Stanford, with each receiving 50 percent of the total raised.

METALLICA has supported the Sharks for years, and the Sharks skate through their iconic shark head and onto the ice for home games while METALLICA's "Seek And Destroy" is played.

The band's members are no strangers to SAP Center. Hetfield was in attendance when the Sharks clinched their first trip to the Cup Final with a 5-2 win against the St. Louis Blues in Game 6 of the Western Conference Final.

Last season the Sharks held "Metallica Night". The band dropped the opening puck, helped with the lineup announcement and were presented with custom Metallica Sharks jerseys.
