Cat Goes Viral After Headbanging To Metallica’s ‘Enter Sandman’

A TikTok user recently posted a video of his cat rocking out to Metallica‘s ‘Enter Sandman,’ which rapidly went viral on TikTok.

TikTok is a social media platform where people show off their dance talents or lip-sync to their favorite songs. Moreover, it’s also full of fluffy and cute animal videos, life hacks, tutorials, and meal recipes. Some of these videos go viral and end up being watched by hundreds of thousands of people.

In this case, it was a metalhead kitty who went viral. On May 21, a TikTok user and cat owner posted a video of his cat on the platform, in which the cat was headbanging to Metallica’s classic ‘Enter Sandman.’ The video quickly garnered over 400,000 likes and has been reposted more than 34,000 times.

The video shows that the kitty loves ‘Enter Sandman’ so much that it cannot stop wiggling her fluffy body after hearing the song. In the caption, the owner said the cat is back to listening to Metallica, so it seems this wasn’t the first time the cat rocked out to metal music.

The caption of the video follows:

“She’s back at it.”

In the comments section, some fans even nicknamed the cat ‘James Catfield,’ and the kitty became known as the ‘Metalli-cat.’ Upon seeing this video, other cat owners also shared their metal-lover cats on the platform, and this ended up becoming a trend.
