"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.

Our Favorite Metallica Cover Art — Singles

This was no easy task, and there's no doubt that many will have their own personal favorite cover art that they think should be included in this collection. From looking at absolutely killer artwork created by Brian Schroeder—better known to 'Tallica fans as the artist Pushead—and awesome shots of the band to hand-drawn cover art by James Hetfield himself, these are 10 covers that we love.

Some of Our Favorite Live Photos of Robert Trujillo

If you've ever seen Metallica live in the last 20 years, you know how much of a monster Robert Trujillo is onstage. From his signature helicopter spin to his barking vocals, Trujillo is a musician few can imitate. We could share thousands of photos of Trujillo doing what he does best, but we decided to trim it down to just a few of our favorites.

Sometimes in rock bands, you'll find the bassist is more subdued or prefers to stay away from the spotlight. With Trujillo, he commands the attention of the crowd—and often, the attention of his bandmates—and Metallica's live shows are better because of it.

Check out some of our favorite live shots of Trujillo below, going all the way back to when he first joined the band in 2003.
