Unless you've been living under a rock, I don't need to tell you that people… love… cats. Just ask Exodus guitarist and cat-lover extraordinaire Gary Holt. But now, another little kitty has put their metal mayhem talent through the internet litmus test, as a clip taken by its owner features an orange tab cat thrashing around and headbanging to Metallica's classic track "Enter Sandman.”
The video—posted to TikTok on May 21 by owner @mrchashundley, featuring the caption, "She's back at it #catsoftiktok #tabbycat”— has garnered over 270,000 likes and has been shared more than 16,000 times. Of course, metal cats going viral on TikTok is all the rage right noew, with plenty of TikTok videos of cats “singing” along to Ozzy Osbourne, Disturbed, and countless others.
As for "Enter Sandman" and the infamous Metallica album (also known as The Black Album) it celebrated it's 30th anniversary last year. Recently, former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted shared his thoughts on the track, saying that he thought it was "corny."
Better not say that around this cat!
