Metallica celebrates St. Patrick's Day with “Whiskey in the Jar” live video

ABC/Randy HolmesMetallica would like to wish you a happy St. Patrick’s Day with a live video of them performing their version of “Whiskey in the Jar.” The clip was recorded during Metallica’s show in Minneapolis last summer. 

“Whiskey in the Jar” is a traditional Irish folk song that Metallica covered for their 1998 compilation Garage, Inc. Other bands who’ve recorded versions of the tune include Thin Lizzy and The Grateful Dead.

You can watch Metallica’s live “Whiskey in the Jar” performance now on YouTube.
