According to Metallica's official website, this was the first time that the band played "Through the Never" in Santiago since May 4, 1993. They debuted it onstage on Oct. 12, 1991, in Oakland, Calif., and since then, have performed the track 245 times. "Through the Never" was never released as a single, but it can be found on a number of live releases, including Live Shit: Binge & Purge and Metallica's Six Feet Down Under EP.
In celebration of the 30th anniversary of the "Black Album" in 2021, "Through the Never" was covered by two artists on the massive compilation, The Metallica Blacklist: Mongolian folk rockers The HU and the soul-filled vocalist Tomi Owó. Check out Owó's rendition below.
