Justin Timberlake and Heavy Metal: A Winning Combination

When Justin Timberlake released "Suit and Tie" this year, many critics praised the song while noting that it wasn't exactly a sonic game-changer along the lines of "SexyBack"—nor was it trying to be. But even for those who found Timberlake's long-awaited return a bit underwhelming, the song at least managed to inspire quite a few remixes and covers that were often bolder and sounded more contemporary than the original.

But, as far as we can tell, no one tried to turn "Suit and Tie" into metal—until now. For that, we can turn to YouTube user Andy Rehfeldt, who arranged and performed this new version himself, laying Timberlake's vocals from a live performance seamlessly on top. It might not reach the heights of some other versions, but it's still pretty fun.
