Cover version I’d like to hear: Metallica doing “Institutionalized”

Of the four songs I’ve suggested in this blog to date — Rush, Simply Red and Pet Shop Boys, I’m still waiting, ahem — this is the one that seems most likely to happen, which is to say it has a 1% chance while the other suggestions had zero. Still, a man can dream.

Suicidal Tendencies’ “Institutionalized” is one of the funniest punk songs of all time. Even my mom loved the bit about Mike, his mom, and a Pepsi. Metallica’s bassist, Robert Trujillo, used to be in Suicidal Tendencies. James gets to yell, Kirk gets to shred, and Lars gets to absolutely bash the shit out of his drums. Seems like a no-brainer to me.
