Metallica's Performance Audio Was Replaced By Elevator Music on Twitch

Metallica played a concert to kick off "BlizzCon" on Twitch, but a lot of viewers didn't even get to hear them, because their performance audio was swapped out for ELEVATOR MUSIC. 

The show was live streamed for free on the Twitch Gaming channel, and things were going well for a minute, until the band broke into “For Whom The Bell Tolls.” That’s when suddenly, instead of rock, fans started hearing elevator music. Twitch replaced Metallica’s live tunes to avoid a Digital Millennium Copyright ACT (DMCA) takedown.

So you could SEE Metallica performing, but the audio was just some non-descript 8-bit music. Take a look below.
