On Thursday afternoon Metallica sat down with Howard Stern for a special edition of SiriusXM’s The Howard Stern Show to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the band’s “Black Album.” Miley Cyrus and Elton John joined METALLICA on The Howard Stern Show and their appearance included the first live performance of Miley and Metallica together. Thursday’s celebration of the album’s 30th anniversary came ahead of the release of “The Metallica Blacklist”, a covers-filled tribute compilation featuring a bevy of artists from Chris Stapleton and Weezer to Miley Cyrus and Elton John.

Elton John telling Howard his decision to play piano on the star-studded cover was an absolute “no-brainer.” “This is one of the best songs ever written, to me. It’s a song that never gets old. Playing on this track I just couldn’t wait because the chord structure, the melodies, the time changes—it’s got drama written all over it,” he said.

“We’re celebrating our 40th anniversary this year, and if you could’ve said 40 years ago—when James and I started down the 605 in fucking Norwalk, in a garage down there without a pot to piss in— if you could say 40 years later that we would still be functioning, that we’d be sitting here with one of the greatest stars in the world [in Miley] next to us, with Elton on a Zoom, and doing [Howard’s] radio show, and talking about our accomplishments and what this record means to so many, that would be the mindfuck of all mindfucks,” Lars responded. “It’s just crazy cool.”
