We all know the feeling we get whenever we hear Slayer come on. There's good reason as to why Slayer fans yell "SLAAAAYERRRRR" at any concert they go to or any time they're out in public and see someone else with a Slayer shirt. The music is awesome and this kid is one of us!
There aren't a lot of kids who are 11 years old and have a stage name, but Thaddie V has the name and the skills. Children of Bodom frontman Alexi Laiho is regarded as one of the best and fastest guitarists in the world, so playing his band's songs at any age is no easy feat.
With a pair of headphones over his head to better keep in time with the music, this kid jams out to some Linkin Park! He doesn't just lazily hit his kit, but moves around quite a bit in his seat and accents the hits with power.
This kid looks pretty young, but he can jam on Lamb of God better than most adults. Even more impressive, he's doing it on an acoustic guitar with absolutely no backing music whatsoever. Every note he plays is our there for viewers to deconstruct, but this little dude hits the mark while performing Lamb of God's 'Walk With Me in Hell.'
Six Feet Under helped pioneer the death 'n' roll genre with their midtempo grooves taking on the traditional rock song structure. Singer Chris Barnes is no stranger to the classic rock bands of the '70s, but what he might find strange here is a little girl dancing to his music!
Queensryche's biggest hit, like a lot of bands of the era, was a ballad. 'Silent Lucidity' is a gentle, acoustic driven song with orchestration to powerfully back the mood. Hey, even hardened metalheads can be softies at times! Here we have the song being played wonderfully by a young boy.
Yngwie Malmsteen is renowned for his neoclassical guitar shredding, which is unparalleled in metal. Here we have an 11-year-old kid willing to take on one of the world's best guitarists! The song he decided to cover is 'Vengeance' off Malmsteen's 1995 album, 'Magnum Opus.'
With gleaming eyes, this kid throws up the horns before settling in to give his drum kit a serious beating. He's covering one of the modern era's most crucial and inspiring bands, System of a Down, and their hit 'Toxicity!'
Here's something Dave Grohl would be proud to see! As a huge activist for getting children involved in music, Grohl has inspired the youth time and time again with Nirvana and the Foo Fighters. These two proudly count the musician among their influences as they take on the Foo Fighters' hit 'Everlong.'
