Metallica played their hit song "Enter Sandman" on classroom instruments like hand clappers and a xylophone.

The heavy metal band were joined by The Roots and "Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon for a version of their song. The band proved you don't need top-notch instruments to play hit songs, just world-class musicians and late night TV hosts.
