The ad sees the band effectively out of work and desperately searching for someone to use their music as a TV theme tune.

Metallica recently played well received sets at both this year’s Glastonbury and Sonisphere festivals. You can read Skin Back Alley’s verdict on the controversial Glastonbury set here.
