Masterful Mystery Tour is the second album from Beatallica.[3] It contains 12 tracks, which are mashups (or Bashups) of songs by the Beatles and Metallica. As with their first album Sgt. Hetfield's Motorbreath Pub Band, this album contains re-recordings of songs from the band's EP releases A Garage Dayz Nite and Beatallica, plus six new Beatles/Metallica mashup songs. The album cover is a parody of The Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour and Metallica's Master of Puppets.

Beatallica released a video for the single "Hero of the Day Tripper" on YouTube, the band's first official full-length video.

With a slight nod to Metallica's 2 of One video release, the official video for "Fuel on the Hill" was released on March 5, 2009 along with another version entitled "Benzin auf dem Berg". Both were shot at the same time and planned as a dual release. "Benzin auf dem Berg" is the German film noir counterpart to "Fuel on the Hill".

On September 11, 2009, Masterful Mystery Tour was released by the German label Megapress. The CD contains a bonus track, Beatallica's cover of the J.B.O. song "Eine Guten Tag Zum Sterben" (English translation: "A Good Day For Dying").
