‘I’m Your Dream, Make You Real': Metallica Release Live Video of ‘Sad But True’
"Sad But True" was released as an official single from Metallica's "Black Album" on Feb. 8, 1993. The U.S. release of the song included the classic B-Side "So What," the Anti-Nowhere League track that Metallica would later include on the second disc of Garage Inc.
Of course, over the decades, "Sad But True" has turned into a staple in Metallica's live sets and remains, to this day, one of the most-performed songs of their entire catalog.
On May 7, 2002, Metallica rocked it onstage at Estádio Couto Pereira in Curitiba, Brazil, and now they've released the official live video of the performance. Check it out below.
