Metallica to drag the miner back to life.

Music played for Randal McCloy Jr., the sole survivor of the mine disaster.
Occasionally smiling and laughing, [his wife, Anna said] that she found strength in faith and had no doubt that he would recover.

"It's amazing, it's a miracle," she said of his survival. "Faith plays a big role. Without it, we wouldn't be coping. It's given us hope."
Faith... and heavy metal music.

Let not one among us doubt the healing power of Lars!

Metallica is certainly better than most.

I recommend their Garage, Inc. album.

Especially their cover of Thin Lizzy's Whiskey in a Jar (itself being a cover of an age-old Irish folk song of the same name).

The Chieftains have also done Whiskey in the Jar, albeit, with a rather different sound than either Thin Lizzy or Metallica...

Hopefully they'll skip "One".

I don't have to like Metallica to see how great that is. Like the woman in Atlanta that calmed the killer, it says more about faith than Pat Robertson ever could.
