Hmmmmmmmm I dunno about this, we hear you say.

Miley Cyrus and a star-studded line-up of guests including Elton John and Red Hot Chili Peppers Chad Smith have released a cover of Metallica's iconic 'Nothing Else Matters'.

Earlier this week, Metallica announced an upcoming Black Album reissue that will partner with a Metallica covers album by various artists, called The Metallica Blacklist. Cyrus' cover of Nothing Else Matters will feature on that album.

Metallica shared the song to their socials, with the caption "Check out your first sneak peek of the #MetallicaBlacklist with a star-studded rendition of "Nothing Else Matters" by Miley Cyrus featuring watt , Elton John , Yo-Yo Ma , Robert Trujillo, and Chad Smith."

Gotta say, it's a pretty decent cover and Miley's vocals have left many people genuinely impressed.

However, as expected, some Metallica heads aren't vibing it.

What're your thoughts? Reckon it's a goer? Should we chuck it for a few spins on the playlist?

The remastered Black Album and Blacklist will both be released on Sept 10. Blacklist will feature 53 artists covering their favourite songs from The Black Album, with all profits going to charity. Check out more info on Metallica's website.
