‘Grandma Just Killed Rob Zombie’ – Watch Older Person Do ‘Dragula’ Karaoke
"Grandma just killed Rob Zombie." That's the caption that TikTok user @aprilbaumsaway gave to a video of an older person confidently singing a karaoke version of Zombie's "Dragula" last week. The clip subsequently went viral, and it currently has over 2 million views on the video-sharing app.
In it, the karaoke singer gives a strident performance with plenty of illustrative gesturing toward a small bar audience that, despite one patron dancing, seems to do little to liven up the joint.
Watch the video down near the bottom of this post.
"I've never seen anything better than this," the TikTok user shared alongside the video that emerged on March 18. They tagged Zombie's official TikTok account in the post and indicated that the karaoke performance occurred in Fargo, N.D.
It's not the first time an older person has gone viral for doing "Dragula" karaoke. Last year, a different "metal grandma" delighted viewers with her take on the 1998 Hellbilly Deluxe single, the first issued from that album, Zombie's debut solo LP after White Zombie's split.
Zombie's most recent album is 2021's The Lunar Injection Kool Aid Eclipse Conspiracy. The rocker and auteur is currently making a Munsters movie reboot. The term "Dragula" comes from the name of the monster family's car in the original TV series.
Zombie will play Kentucky's Louder Than Life Festival in September, followed by California's Aftershock Festival in October. He'll warm up next month at Arizona Bike Week 2022 in Scottsdale, Ariz. See Zombie's "Dragula" music video beneath the karaoke clip.
