Metallica members will rock the national anthem for NBA fans

It will get loud before the NBA Finals game Wednesday.

Heavy metal rockers James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett, of San Francisco-based Metallica, will perform “The Star-Spangled Banner” before Game 3 in Oakland’s Oracle Arena.

The series between home team the Golden State Warriors and the Toronto Raptors is tied 1-1.

The Metallica Twitter site announced the pregame music news Tuesday.

“Look for James and Kirk to perform the National Anthem before tip off tomorrow as the @Warriors host the @Raptors for Game 3 of the #NBAFinals.”

The Canadian National Anthem will be performed by Canadian singer Tenille Townes.

Metallica had already performed the national anthem during Game 5 of the Warriors’ 2015 championship run.

And Hetfield and Hammett played a guitar-heavy version of “The Star-Spangled Banner” at San Francisco’s Oracle Park for baseball fans at a sold-out Giants vs.Yankees game earlier this season. 

Here’s a taste of what we’ll likely see.
