  1. Lee, this is awesome beyond words. I love the Metallica video. I’m going to have to steal it next St. Patrick’s Day for Friday Morning Videos.

    Incidentally, you wrote that it was The Chieftains, but it’s actually The Dubliners.

  2. I always found this an amusing party-game question: What song was covered by both Peter, Paul & Mary and Metallica?

    Also, some friends in my high school recorded a rap version.
