Heavy metal gone bluegrass? Seems strange, but this Finnish band decided to take on the challenge and created something like you’ve never heard before!
The bluegrass band, Steve N Seagulls, transformed Metallica’s 1992 hit, “Nothing Else Matters” into a song that sounds straight out of the south. “Nothing Else Matters” was a global sensation, dipping into the charts in over 10 countries including Australia, Belgium, France, Sweden, and Finland.
While Steve ‘n’ Seagulls version is quite possibly the most unique, the rock song has been covered an upwards of 100 times. Even pop sensation, Shakira has tried her hand at the tune.
While most try and stay true to the original song, Steve N Seagulls took a completely different approach. Known for covering heavy metal hits of the past in bluegrass style, they stayed true to their roots and knocked this one out of the park. Since the creation of their YouTube page back in 2009 they’ve accrued over 619,000 subscribers and an accumulated 15 million views on their “Nothing Else Matters” video alone.
