"'Tallica Parking Lot" was premiered at the Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas on September 25, 2013. The soundtrack to the film has "big, energetic beats as the animations panned through 2D and 3D views of the fans that pre-game at METALLICA shows," according to HitFix. "I wrote most of [the music for] it, but [METALLICA frontman] James Hetfield had a heavy hand in helping me finish it," Trujillo told AMFM Magazine. "It's an original music score by METALLICA. It has some very cool cameos that range from 'South Park' to 'Beavis & Butthead' and Lemmy from MOTÖRHEAD." He added: "Just like [METALLICA's new 3D movie] 'Through The Never', you're part of the creation of something, and to see it come to life on the screen, especially when it's animated, is really special." "'Tallica Parking Lot" and three versions of "Metallica Through The Never" were made available on the DVD/Blu-ray and other formats of the release, which came out on January 28 through Blackened Recordings. "'Tallica Parking Lot" takes its title from "Heavy Metal Parking Lot", the classic 1986 documentary short that captured fans tailgating before a JUDAS PRIEST and DOKKEN gig. After being passed around as a bootleg for years, it eventually earned a DVD release that added more than two hours of bonus material.
