metallica3 Wedding band sneaks in bossa nova cover of Enter Sandman

I was lucky enough to go to a wedding recently where the groom was in a local hardcore band and, after the vows, the band played a set in their tuxedos. It ruled. Most people don’t get this lucky, and have to sit through a rough DJ or a pat wedding band that plays dusty jazz tunes of yore. Marcel Yammouni’s band in Melbourne, Australia probably gets just as sick of it as the rest of us, so during the “dinner set,” he and his band broke out a cover of Metallica’s “Enter Sandman” re-imagined in a lovely bossa nova style. It too ruled. Check out the cover below (via Gawker).

The last three seconds seal it for me.
