Over the course of 40+ years, Metallica has collected millions of fans from around the world. So much so that just over 250 musicians gathered together in Moscow, Russia to cover their 1991 hit song "Sad But True."
Known as "RocknMob," the group is known for creating flash mobs to cover songs by artists like Linkin Park, Bon Jovi and 30 Seconds To Mars. Complete with guitarists, bassists, drummers, vocalists, and even a guy on violin, the heavy metal orchestra effortlessly nails the Metallica classic.
This isn't the first ttime RocknMob has paid tribute to Metallica. In 2017, they performed "Enter Sandman" in Saint Petersburg.
RocknMob was inspired by the success of Italy's Rockin1000, which went viral after 1,000 musicians gathered in Cesena to cover "Learn to Fly" by Foo Fighters in an effort to convince the band to play at their village on their European tour.
