…And ABBA for All: Watch Metallica members cover "Dancing Queen" in Sweden
Written by Classic Rock 93.9 on May 8, 2018
After covering Europe‘s “The Final Countdown” in Stockholm over the weekend, Metallica‘s Kirk Hammett and Rob Trujillo paid tribute to another Swedish icon at the band’s second show in the city Monday night: ABBA.
During the pair’s annual “doodle” segment, Hammett and Trujillo busted out a cover of “Dancing Queen,” with the bassist handling lead vocals. Official footage of the performance is streaming now on YouTube. Come for the cover version, stay for the faces of confused metal fans.
Hammett and Trujillo previously covered “Take On Me,” by Norwegian band a-ha when Metallica stopped in Oslo, Norway last week.
Metallica is currently touring Europe in support of the band’s latest album, Hardwired…to Self-Destruct. They’ll launch a U.S. arena tour in September.
