Twitch dubbed over Metallica stream, and the internet thinks that's a shame

Specifically, Metallica, known for (among other things) its 2000 lawsuit against the music-sharing service Napster, was streaming a concert for Blizzard Entertainment’s annual news event, BlizzCon, when Twitch Gaming dubbed over the heavy metal with what sounded like elevator music.
