Metallica, ‘Some Kind of Monster’ – Official Music Video

The final single from 2003’s ‘St. Anger’ is also the namesake of the 2004 Metallica tell-all documentary, ‘Some Kind of Monster.’ The music video for ‘Some Kind of Monster’ takes footage from the film as well as older concert material and sets it to the tune of the song.

The music video debuted on June 28, 2004, a few months after the documentary was released. The documentary was directed by Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky, however, the director credited with directing the music video is Alan Smithee, which is actually a pseudonym used by directors who, upon completion of the project, want to keep their name from being associated with it. It is unclear if Berlinger and Sinofsky asked for the name Alan Smithee to be used as the music video director.

The artwork for the cover the ‘Some Kind of Monster EP’ was created by Matt Mahurin, who worked with Metallica on a number of music videos including ‘The Unforgiven’ and ‘The Unforgiven II.’
