Metallica alle NBA Finals: inno americano suonato prima di Gara 5 (video)

Kirk Hammett e James Hetfield suonano The Star-Spangled Banner davanti a Golden State Warriors e Cleveland Cavaliers

I Metallica hanno decisamente preso gusto con la tradizione americana di far suonare a grandi band l’inno americano prima delle partite di qualsiasi sport.
Dopo essersi fatti le ossa sulla Star-Spangled Banner prima delle partite di baseball, Kirk Hammett e James Hetfield sono approdati alla NBA, addirittura alla Gara 5 dello scontro fra Golden State Warriors e Cleveland Cavaliers, il 14 Giugno.

Così, con le squadre in campo ed una enorme bandiera americana srotolata da militari appartenenti a vari corpi, i due chitarristi dei Metallica hanno dato elettricità all’inno americano, come potete vedere nel video qui in alto.

La partita si è conclusa 104-91 per i Golden State Warriors, per la cronaca, lanciando il risultato delle serie (al meglio di 7) per 3 a 2 per i Warriors.

The Star-Spangled Banner: il testo dell’inno americano

Oh, say can you see by the dawn’s early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines in the stream:
‘Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh long may it wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion,
A home and a country should leave us no more!
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps’ pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war’s desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav’n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: “In God is our trust.”
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
