The world would probably continue to turn without kitschy funk covers of popular rock favorites. But really, what would be the point? Chicago funk outfit The North 41 has provided a new one that’s getting a lot of viral attention online, a Metallica cover entitled “Enter Sandman (FUNKED UP)” that earns its “FUNKED UP” designation with funk to spare.
“Enter Sandman (FUNKED UP)” takes the familiar tale of … whatever it is “Enter Sandman” is about and gives it a nice midwestern funk twist. Like all good riffs, this one sounds pretty good regardless of who’s playing, but honestly you should probably just listen to it yourself if you’re interested:
“Enter Sandman (FUNKED UP)” is one of only two tracks from The North 41 on Spotify, so if they have any business sense at all they’ll have a record out in the near future, while the iron is hot. Stay tuned to the artist page on Spotify here. And you can check out the song’s official video below:
