Metallica Reveal Video Of X Games 'Whiplash' Performance

(hennemusic) Metallica are sharing footage of a performance of their 1983 classic, "Whiplash", at the 2015 X Games in Austin, Texas on June 6. "Whiplash" was the band's lead single from their debut album, "Kill 'Em All."

The band's video highlight package also includes guitarist Kirk Hammett, bassist Rob Trujillo and drummer Lars Ulrich in the meet and greet, and the group warming up in the Tuning Room before the show.

The X Games appearance also saw Hammett and James Hetfield team up for 'The Star-Spangled Banner' prior to the Moto X Speed & Style competition at the annual extreme sports event.

Metallica have released audio of their headline concert at the X Games, with proceeds from the show's download going to assist the victims of the recent floods in Texas.

The band are donating all money raised from the sale of the downloads of the June 6 show to the American Red Cross of Central Texas. Check out the X Games performance here.
