Amazing Cover Gives Metallica's 'Nothing Else Matters' a Jazz Makeover

Michele Debczak

Released on their iconic self-titled album (or "Black Album") in 1991, Metallica’s angsty ballad "Nothing Else Matters" is one of the band's most popular songs. This jazzy cover from Postmodern Jukebox will make even longtime Metallica fans feel like they’re hearing it for the first time.

Postmodern Jukebox is known for performing modern hits in the style of old-school artists. Their past covers have included a doo-wop version of Miley Cyrus’s “We Can’t Stop,” a 1960s girl group rendition of Ellie Goulding’s “Burn,” and a Great Gatsby-era version of Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance.” Their latest video above features 15-year-old vocalist Caroline Baran performing classic Metallica in the style of the torch songs of the 1940s.
