The beauty of being old is that you can do pretty much whatever the fuck you want, and no one can say a damn thing about it. And yeah, sometimes, this manifests itself in super ugly ways, like elderly people yelling racial slurs or ranting at goth kids about Jesus. But it also results in a lot of incredible online footage of Nana and Popop getting down at a club or asking passing beefcake to take their shirts off. Now, one grandma has shown just how hard she can slay with a crushing karaoke cover of Rob Zombie‘s classic windmill-burner “Dragula.”
As reported by Metal Hammer, Pamela Willis Martin decided to take part in the karaoke night at her favorite off-hours spot The Gaming Goat in Arizona. But instead of belting out “Endless Love” or “Dancing In The Street,” Pamela chose “Dragula,” and had a blast singing it. Surrounding her are a bevy of headbanging young people who seem ready to lay down their souls to the gods Polident and Metamucil. We defy Rob Zombie to try and perform his own song so deftly wearing a…is that a purple cheetah-print jumper?
Check out Pamela’s satanic majesty below:
One assumes Pamela is pretty stoked to see Rob Zombie’s reboot of The Munsters, given that she probably watched the original on TV when it came out. After officially announcing that he was directing the movie last month, the shock rocker began sharing tidbits like crazy — first, the blueprints of the Munster family home at 1313 Mockingbird Lane; then the first costume designs for Lily and Herman Munster; and only last week the first wig pics fo Grandpa Munster. Whether or not Pamela will be able to sit through the movie without shouting, “That’s a big fuck yeah, Robbie baby!” remains to be seen, but we are ever hopeful.
