Watch Metallica Perform The National Anthem Before Game 3 of the NBA Finals

June 6, 2019

If any bay area sports team makes it in the playoffs, you can be sure that locals James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett of Metallica are going to be there to show their support. That is because before Game 3 of the NBA finals between the Toronto Raptors and the Golden State Warriors, both axemen appeared to perform their electric guitar-version of the National Anthem.

As Hammett took the lead, Hetfield provided additional heaviness with power chords while they both donned t-shirts with the warriors' motto "Strength In Numbers" in support of their hometown's team.
