Metallica, ‘Sad But True’ – Official Music Video

On the heels of directing ‘Enter Sandman’ and ‘Wherever I May Roam,’ Wayne Isham stuck around to film Metallica’s final music video from their 1991 self-titled album. The video for ‘Sad But True,’ which debuted Oct. 5, 1992, is the band’s fifth clip from their eponymous album.

Following the same theme of ‘Wherever I May Roam,’ ‘Sad But True’ focuses on the live aspect of Metallica, with footage from performances in San Diego, California.

Since the release of the album and the following worldwide tour, ‘Sad But True’ seems to almost always find its way onto Metallica’s setlist for concerts. From the early ’90s to the 2012 concerts in Vancouver that were filmed for Metallica’s 3D film, the song is a fan favorite and a staple for the band’s live shows. It only makes sense that the music video is all about Metallica in their live element.
