Metallica are streaming a video performance of their 1986 classic, “Master of Puppets,” taken from the Prague Rocks festival in Prague, Czechia on June 22.
“Master of Puppets” was chosen as the title track for the band’s major label debut, which eventually skyrocketed as it became heavy metal’s first platinum album climbing up its way to the US sales gaining more than 6 million copies.
The iconic song was a full studio record and the final project that features bassist Cliff Burton, who unfortunately passed away when the band’s bus rolled over in Sweden while they were on their European tour.
On Prague Rocks, joining Metallica are none other than Five Finger Death Punch, Steel Panther, Red Fang and more. Metallica wrapped up their European tour as they make their appearance at NOS Alive in Lisbon, Portugal on July 8.
Meanwhile, “Master of Puppets” has continued to rise in popularity over the past week, with an amazing 17.5 million Spotify downloads since the Stranger Things Season 4 finale was released on July 1. Within a few days following the episode’s premiere, the song made its debut on Spotify’s Top 50-Global chart.
As of July 11, the track has 444,117,621 Spotify downloads and an 80 percent popularity score, up from the 426,623,861 downloads it received the week prior. On Google, searches for the song increased by 5000% the day after the final episode aired. Watch their performance below.
