The accolades for Metallica continue to roll in, with the band's video for 1991's “Nothing Else Matters” surpassing one billion views on YouTube.
Blabbermouth posted: “The 'Nothing Else Matters' video, which was uploaded to YouTube in October of 2009, was directed by Adam Dubin and edited by Sean Fullan and is made up of clips from the 1992 Metallica documentary, A Year And A Half In The Life Of Metallica. The clip is perhaps best remembered for a scene where Lars Ulrich throws darts at a poster of Winger frontman Kip Winger.”
The band has re-recorded the song with orchestrator James Newton Howard for use in Disney's latest summer blockbuster, Jungle Cruise, starring Dwayne Johnson. Lars Ulrich told Collider, “James Newton Howard, the man, the myth, the absolute legend. . . It’s a very unusual morph in that it’s kind of his arrangement of 'Nothing Else Matters' that we’re playing. We wrote the song, but he took the song and rearranged it to fit something specific in the film — and obviously, I’m not going to give any of that away — but we then kind of took on his version of it. I think that’s all that should be said.” (Collider)
