Listen to The Chats Cover of Metallica’s ‘Holier Than Thou’

It’s not every day a band like Metallica gets you to cover one of their infamous songs but Australia’s very own The Chats scored the opportunity of a lifetime to do just that for The Metallica Blacklist album – out now!

The Chats put their own garage band sound to ‘Holier Than Thou‘ which sounds raw as fuck, just like the old school days of Metallica’s early years, but with that Aussie twang we know from the Queensland trio. What you may not know is the song was recorded for a great cause – every band on the album has a charity in which profits from purchases/streams will go towards – the boys picked The North Australian Aboriginal Justice Agency alongside Metallica‘s All Within My Hands Foundation.

Give it a spin below and if you like what you hear, grab it, knowing your money will be delivered to a worthy local cause. Metallica are celebrating 30 years of the Black Album and our resident Tallica’ fanatic KJ Draven took a deep dive back to the year it was released revisiting the insanity and hype it brought across the globe!
