We promised you we'd do it, and we're here to deliver. On this week's episode, Merl, El and Steve review every single track on Metallica's mammoth-sized Blacklist project. Yes, that's right: all 53 Black Album covers get rated and slated, including fresh takes on Metallica classics by Ghost, Miley Cyrus, Biffy Clyro, Rina Sawayama, Volbeat, The Hu, Royal Blood, Weezer, St Vincent, David Gahan, My Morning Jacket and many, many, many more.

We also discuss what makes a great cover, why the rock bands on The Blacklist are at a disadvantage compared to everyone else and which covers might even exceed the originals. Plus, we pick our ultimate Blacklist Tracklist using just one version of each song.
