Metallica played at the Target Center in Minneapolis last night and the heavy metal Gods did one of the worst Prince covers I've ever seen.

Metallica's lead guitarist Kirk Hammett and bass player Rob Trujillo apparently picked up some sheet music on the way to the stadium and winged their performance of the Prince classic 'When Doves Cry'.

Listen, if you're coming to Minneapolis and you feel the need to do a Prince cover, you better practice or at least make the song somewhat recognizable, even the crowd seemed perplexed as to what song they were playing.

I for one hope the trend of artists feeling obligated to do a Prince cover at any Minneapolis show ends soon rather than later, and if you're gonna do it, do it well!
