The Big 4 Covers "Overkill" (Video)

The "Big Four" bands of 1980s thrash metal - MetallicaMegadeth, Slayer and Anthrax - played their second-ever U.S. show Wednesday, September 14th at the new Yankee Stadium in New York City.

The highly anticipated onstage performance of the "Big Four" bands at the same time happened near the end of Metallica`s set, between "Enter Sandman" and "Battery". Members of AnthraxSlayer, Megadet and Exodus (whose guitarist, Gary Holt, is still filling in for an ailing Jeff Hanneman of Slayer) joined Metallica on stage for a cover of Motörhead's "Overkill" before Metallica ended the night with "Seek & Destroy".
Video footage of the "Overkill" performance can be seen below.
