Cancer sucks. Thankfully, Metallica's James Hetfield's and a number of rockers' influence could draw a packed house at the Fillmore in San Francisco on Thursday. Rolling Stone uncovered two videos from the benefit for the Pediatric Cancer Program at the Bay Area's UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital.

Here's a video of Hetfield covering The Beatles:

Hetfield wasn't the only special guest:

But a heartfelt Beatles ballad wasn't the only surprise of the evening. In addition to playing two Metallica songs on acoustic — "Nothing Else Matters" and "Until It Sleeps" — Hetfield teamed with two of the evening's other performers, Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong and guitar virtuoso Joe Satriani, for a medley of Bob Seger's "Turn the Page" and the American Idiot track "Boulevard of Broken Dreams."
