James Hetfield, lead vocalist for the heavy metal band Metallica, loves hunting. So much so, he narrated an eight-episode documentary series entitled “The Hunt,” which is currently airing on the History Channel.  The show follows hunters as they roam Alaska’s Kodiak Island in the hope of killing brown bears.

In response to Hetfield’s involvement with the show, British animal welfare activists tried in vain to get the group yanked from their headlining gig at the Glastonbury festival, which took place last Saturday.

When the group learned of the controversy, they thought it would be funny to make a video mocking their critics.

The men went so far as to hire filmmaker Julian Temple to direct the short film entitled “Glastallica.” The band members don bear costumes in the video as they track and kill British statesmen who are preparing for a fox hunt.

Taking it one step further, “Glastallica” was shown prior to the band’s set at the festival.

Stay classy, Metallica.
