Metallica "Hit the Lights" (live on 'Ferguson')

Long-running thrash gods Metallica kicked off a week-long residency at The Late Late Show last night (November 17) with a throwback to their classic 1983 debut Kill 'Em All.

The band may look a little older, but proved they've still got it, destroying "Hit the Lights" for Craig Ferguson's audience.

Lars Ulrich and James Hetfield stuck around after the performance for an interview with Ferguson, which you can check out after the performance clip.

The band are slated to appear on the show every night this week. Watch the inaugural performance below.
