JAMES HETFIELD Sings DREAM THEATER’s ‘Pull Me Under’ In New AI Video

James Hetfield James LaBrie

DREAM THEATER‘s single “Pull Me Under” from their 1992 album Images and Words received significant mainstream attention, with extensive rotation on MTV and becoming one of the band’s signature songs.

The band’s former drummer, Mike Portnoy, considered the song’s success a “fluke” as it was an 8-minute track that was propelled to mainstream attention by MTV and radio stations, even though it was released as a single at a little under 5 minutes.

Despite being a live staple for over 30 years, fans have criticized James LaBrie‘s vocal performances in recent years, with inconsistency issues stemming from a food poisoning incident in 1994 that affected his vocal chords.

However, in a unique twist, an AI-generated duet between James LaBrie and METALLICA‘s James Hetfield has been created by the YouTube channel “AI Playgrounds,” providing a different vocal spin on “Pull Me Under.”
