NEW YORK, Nov. 17 (UPI) -- Metallica joined The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon and The Roots on a version of their 1991 hit Enter Sandman -- played only with classroom instruments.

The song's famous guitar riff was translated into something a little less metal with the help of kazoos, a child's xylophone, toy drums and a melodica.
