Hip-Hop Fans Listen To Metallica For The First Time And Get Hooked

Reaction videos are all the rage on YouTube. Ever since the Fine Brothers created an online franchise with their REACT channel, suddenly everyone is jumping on the bandwagon and recording reaction videos of themselves. 

A common reaction category is with music, and a trend within this sub-genre of reactions includes hip-hop fans going outside their comfort zones and reacting to rock and metal. And what better band to break them in than Metallica?

We gathered a wide variety of YouTubers and their reactions to popular Metallica songs. As happy as we are to witness others experiencing the joy and majesty that is rock and metal, we wish someone would have told these hip-hop fans that you never, ever, ever, ever pause in the middle of a Metallica guitar solo! Enjoy!
