Not every day you see a bunch of little kids get together to rock out over a cover of the Slipknot song “The Heretic Anthem.”
We have heard little kids cover Ghost and Korn in the past, but when it comes to this Slipknot cover, these little kids bring one hell of a performance! (This video was originally shared by the folks over at Revolver).
This latest performance was put together by the folks over at the O’Keefe Music Foundation.
Per their YouTube: “The O’Keefe Music Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) music organization that offers FREE music lessons, FREE music camps, FREE recording sessions and FREE music videos to young musicians from around the world!”
Compared to other covers the foundation has put together, this performance of “The Heretic Anthem” features a greater number of kids in the band (given that Slipknot has so many members).
They even have a little dude banging on a trash can lid! While all the performances here are awesome, the standout among them is 10-year-old vocalist Zoë, who may be giving Corey Taylor a run for his money.
As provided by the O’Keefe Music Foundation, here is the whole lineup:
- Countdown Girl / Laura McCarty / Age 4
Beer Keg #1 / Phil Aselage / Age 7
Beer Keg #2 / Parker Stone / Age 8
OMF Garbage Can of Doom / Brady Vandercook / Age 10
Vocals / Zoë Franziska / Age 10
Chainsaw & Chimes / Brianna Montante / age 11
OMF Wheelbarrow of Wonder / Isabella Owens / Age 11
Lead Guitar / Xander Markewich / Age 12
Bass / Calli Dressen
Rhythm Guitar / Conner Meintel / Age 17
Drums / Evan Harris / Age 17
You can find the video of these little kids performing the Slipknot song “The Heretic Anthem” below. After you check out the video, we have also included links below to other awesome covers performed by kids.
Also from the O’Keefe Music Foundation, there is a badass cover of the Korn song “Freak on a Leash”; there is also a really great Ghost cover as well! Also, earlier this year, we shared a video where another group of kids covered the Pantera song “Domination,” and they did an excellent job!
