Just like the Wu-Tang Clan, metal is for the children. Just ask Audrey and Kate.
Guitarist Audrey, age 14, and bassist Kate, age 9 both learned how to shred thanks to the Ubisoft video game Rocksmith, which is basically Guitar Hero but uses an actual guitar. The two share videos of their playing on their YouTube channel, and it’s become so popular that Ubisoft recently had them take part in a live stream where they jammed “Killing in the Name” by Rage Against the Machine, “In Waves” by Trivium, “Metropolis Part 1” by Dream Theater, and “Through the Fire and Flames” by Dragonforce.
Honestly, if these two don’t give you hope for the future, I’m not quite sure what will. Do yourself a favor and take a moment and check out the five performances below from Audrey and Kate. It’ll likely be one of the highlights of your day.
Slayer – “Raining Blood”
Marilyn Manson – “The Beautiful People”
Iron Maiden – “The Trooper”
Ratt – “Round and Round”
Rage Against the Machine – “Take The Power Back”
