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.'
There have been some mighty ballads penned by the Scorpions, including 'Wind of Change,' 'Lady Starlight,' and, the one featured in this video, 'Still Loving You.' In Thailand, a special version of the hit singing competition television show 'The Voice' featured only kids. One of the standout performances was this girl's audition.
San Francisco isn't exactly a haven for black metal, but this group of kids don't let that stop them from paying tribute to their Norwegian idols Mayhem. In 1994, the band released the groundbreaking 'De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas,' a black metal record that is still spreading its influence.
Here's a group of kids who can truly appreciate Alice Cooper's hit song 'School's Out,' considering they're still in grade school! No more teachers, no more pencils, just guitars, bass, drums, and some killer vocals from a 10-year-old girl!
Calling themselves Room 4, this band's members range from ages 9 to 14, with one of them a member of the Mini Band, whom we've featured before. Watch Room 4 rock out in this video clip from 2012 as they cover a Shinedown hit!
We're going to forgo making any bad puns here about how sweet this drum cover is by this child. Oops! Sorry, we couldn't help it! Getting down to business, this kid rocks his drum kit jamming out to Guns N' Roses classic track 'Sweet Child O' Mine.' We're gonna nickname him 'Steven Toddler.'
