Check out this video of a kiddo rock band rocking Rage Against the Machine’s ”Killing in the name” at the Makeout Room. Apparently kids’ taste in music hasn’t changed in 15 years, because I was playing this exact song with my shitty garage band then (although not nearly as well):
First of all: it’s sung by a girl, so take that, gender roles. Secondly, all 17 “Fuck You”s are fully intact, along with the “MOTHERFUCKERRRRR” at the end. That takes some serious guts, considering their moms are probably in the audience. Third, the lead guitarist who takes Tom Morello’s whammy pedal solo probably plays better than you do.
If you’re interested in signing up your kid for this sort of awesomeness, the show was put on by SF Rock Project.
In other news, “rock ‘n’ roll band” has been officially removed from the list of ways to rebel against your parents. What’s next, drugs?
