Metallica can’t play their own songs on Twitch

Metallica can't play their own songs on Twitch

The group was one of the surprises at Blizzcon Online 2021, but users who saw the event on twitch were in for a surprise

Twitch has long been a well-known wave of music blocking, targeting countless content creators for misusing copyrighted themes. The episode reached a new level of absurdity tonight during Blizzcon Online, the attempt to save Blizzcon 2020 that could not be celebrated due to the global pandemic. Blizzard had reserved a surprise for the end of the conference: to have Metallica again to play in the end, as it already happened in 2014 when they did it live. But at the time of sounding, users who were watching the event on Twitch were in for a surprise: the band’s music did not sound, replaced by generic music that played at the same time as Hetfield’s group played with their usual energy.

Absurd situation

The situation is so absurd that it has already caused a noticeable impact on social networks, especially since the contrast of seeing the thrash metal band sing their song while what was playing was elevator music has an undoubted comic effect. It is assumed that this has happened to avoid possible DMCA lawsuits, which today are automated in the form of robots that comb the videos in search of licensed sound. But the solution to avoid this does not seem to be in the best interest of the image of the brand, in addition to the paradoxical fact that there is fear that a Metallica song, played by the same band at the time, will not pass. the filter of legal protections.

In addition to funny anecdotes, Blizzcon has released news for World of Warcraft and Hearthstone, the Rogue class for Diablo IV and the announcement of a remaster of Diablo 2 for PC and consoles this year. The event will last the entire weekend until February 22.
