8th seeded Metallica’s Master of Puppets continued an improbable run in the 2023 Battle of the Bands Tournament. Metallica who won John’s bracket, took on top-seeded AC/DC’s Back in Black, the winner of Coop’s bracket and rolled to a 67.9% to 32.1% win. With that win, Metallica’s Master of Puppets advances to the championship matchup.

It wasn’t close, nor was it ever close. Metallica moved out to an early lead and never looked back. AC/DC never got close.
