The publishers behind the Beatles' back catalogue and rockers Metallica have given tribute 'mash-up' act BEATALLICA permission to revamp classic album SGT. Pepper'S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND.
The quirky group has cleverly given Beatles classics like Taxman and Helter Skelter a heavy metal makeover - creating a new album of Metallica-fuelled Fab Four tunes.
And the powers that be get the joke - and have given the band their blessing.
The result is new album Sgt. Hetfield's Motorbreath Pub Band, which features tunes with titles like Blackened In The U.S.S.R, Sandman, Helvester of Skelter and Leper Madonna.
Beatallica, comprised of Jaymz Lennfield, Grg Hammettson, Kliff MCBurtney and Ringo Larz, are currently touring America on their Twist + Mosh 2007 trek.
