Metallica Are Attempting To Crown Their Most Beloved Song With Fan-Voted Bracket Created Using Spotify & Live Data


Metallica have embarked on a quest to establish their top fan favorite song via an official bracket on their social media platforms. The band seeded the bracket with the tracks that have the highest Spotify plays, multiplying them by how many times those tracks have been played live. The bracket will be playing out across the coming weeks with the band offering:

“BAT-TERY GO! It’s time for your fav Metallica songs to go head to head in #SomeKindOfBracket. Vote on daily match-ups in our Instagram stories and on Facebook until we crown the champ!”

Going by Spotify data, the band’s platinum single “Enter Sandman” off of their 16x multi-platinum self-titled album holds a commanding lead with over 503,488,528 plays, while “Nothing Else Matters” from the same album holds strong at #2 with 471,521,496 plays.
