Watch & Listen: "10 Songs in the Style of METALLICA" Gives Pop Stars the 'Tallica Treatment

Written by

Anthony Vincent of Ten Second Songs is back with a new video, and this time he's putting a metallic spin on ten pop songs. "10 Songs in the Style of METALLICA" pairs Vincent with guitarist EROCK for a quick blast of what some famous tunes would've sounded like, had they been penned by James Hetfield and Co. So who gets the 'Tallica treatment? Taylor Swift, Outkast, Alanis Morissette, Abba, Toni Braxton, Britney Spears, Nickelback, Seal, Juvenile and Darude are on-deck. Check this out...

"When I thought of the idea to do 10 Songs in the style of Metallica I immediately asked my buddy Eric Calderone (EROCK) to join me because that was the only chance in making this sound as if Metallica REALLY performed these songs. Eric is a master of his craft, not only in performance but matching guitar tones. Insane. But yeah, this was therapeutic for me. Metallica was my favorite band from when I was 10 and at one point in my childhood I hated anything that WASN'T Metallica HAHA. I saw them perform in NYC at MSG with the Symphony Orchestra when I was 12 in November of 1999 and my life was changed FOREVER. I didn't realize how much of a privilege it was to behold that until much later in life. Anyway, I'm rambling. This was a lot of fun, hope you enjoy it." - Anthony Vincent
