Who had St. Vincent doing a Metallica cover in their 2021 list?
I sure as hell didn't. And yet, here it is. It takes a decidedly more electronic feel than the original, and yet, somehow, it remains dark, maybe even dystopian.

I had absolutely no reason to post such a complete tribute to this song across both blogs today, other than the song is stuck in my damn head.
But this version by Kailee Morgue makes me glad that I did this. It brings a little more of an electronic and ever-so-slightly ethereal feeling to the Metric song
The song by the same artist is a little more straight-forward rock than electronic in its live version, but she still brings a happy energy to the song.
Remember what we said over on the Wicked Guilty Pleasures post about this song's rerelease with the Brie Larson vocal in June? Well, coincidentally or not, LA band Dear Elise recorded a cover of the Metric song in 2021 that gives us chills. Check it out!
