They may not have played at the game, but if you were watching last night’s Super Bowl event, there is a decent chance you did get to hear a little Metallica.

For those who did not watch the event, or may have missed out, Metallica was featured as part of a commercial for NASCAR.

Specifically, the band’s new song “Lux Æterna” was used in a commercial for Daytona 500.

Metallica shared the commercial on their Twitter account and provided the following caption:

“Did you catch that last #SuperBowlLVII commercial?? Next Sunday, it’s full speed or nothing. Catch the 65th running of the Daytona 500 – February 19 on @FOXTV. @NASCARONFOX @FOXSports #Daytona500onFOX”

Metallica’s music and the thrill of racing go perfectly hand in hand, and if you want to check out the NASCAR commercial for yourself, you can find it below.

Also below, you will find the tour dates and locations associated with the band’s upcoming North American (which kicks off this August); you will also find links to other Metallica-related stories.
