Metallica just let Lubbock know they're in town and ready to rock in the best way possible.

Metallica posted the photo below to their Instagram page, and it's the most creative -- and bad-ass -- use of Texas Tech University's Double T logo that we've ever seen.

If you're one of the 14,000 people headed to the United Supermarkets Arena tonight for the show and want to share your pictures, videos, etc. on social media, there's a special hashtag just for that: #MetInLubbock

According to Metallica, people who add that hashtag to their social media posts have a chance to be featured on the band's official website.

And be sure to listen to 94.5 FMX (on air or with our free app) from 3 to 7 p.m. on Saturday for the ultimate concert pre-game: FOUR hours of Metallica.

Doors open at 6 p.m. for the Metallica show, and it starts at 7:30 p.m. We'll see y'all there.
