Metallica frontman/guitarist James Hetfield and guitarist Kirk Hammett played "The Star-Spangled Banner" at the Giants/Dodgers game a few days ago, in a segment that in some ways felt like it could have been the intro to a Metallica album of yesteryear (think "Fight Fire With Fire," "Battery," or "Blackened").

The Giants won the game 4-3.

Oh, and here's Lars throwing out the first pitch:
