"Metal" is a song originally by Gary Numan that Poppy covered. It was released as a single on July 6th, 2018. The audio currently has over 1 million views on YouTube.
"Metal" was met with confused reception from fans and the media, expecting it to be a new single. With the recent announcement of her second album Am I a Girl?, fans expected Poppy to release the album's first single rather than a standalone cover. As such, it was met with fewer streams and views than most official Poppy singles.
- This is the first Poppy cover of the "Poppy" era that was officially released as a single.
- When the audio was released on YouTube, people who had Poppy.Church open would be redirected to the video, specifically at 9:36 PM PST.
- The song appears on the soundtrack for the professional wrestling game WWE 2K20.
- Poppy wears an MUS Hood Open Face version on the single artwork, a piece of headwear designed by Nange Magro.
