With thanks to Wax Audio for another great (and unexpected) mash-up of two great tunes! 

Never did we think that soul-pop icon Stevie Wonder and hard rock stalwarts Metallica could sound so great together, but this really works as a bit of fun! Call us pioneers of the Motown-Metal movement if you will...

For the purists out there, here are the originals...

Stevie Wonder's lead single from his fifteenth studio album, Talking Book (1972), by Tamla. The lyrics are chiefly concerned with superstitions, mentioning several popular superstitious fables throughout the song, and deal with the negative effects superstitious beliefs can bring.

It reached #1 in the U.S. and various other territories, and #1 on the soul singles chart. The song was Wonder's first number-one single since "Signed, Sealed, Delivered, I'm Yours" and topped the Billboard Hot 100 in 1973. In November 2004, Rolling Stone magazine ranked the song at #74 on their list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

Released in February 1993 as the 5th and final single from their eponymous fifth album, Metallica. Instantly recognisable, the drop D chugging style riff is a favourite amongst Metallica fans!
