Video: Mini-Metallica takes the internet by storm


(MEDIA GENERAL) — Everyone, stop what you are doing and watch these teens completely nail a few Metallica covers.

(For those of you at work, discreetly insert your ear buds into your computer. Your boss won’t notice. … Wait, don’t hold me to that.)

Catherine Rose recorded the trio, jamming outside of a café in Kansas City, Missouri, on Sunday. The band and the band members’ identities have been kept confidential because … well, they are minors, and Rose didn’t want to release their identities unless the parents approved.

After being posted Sunday, the Facebook video already has more than 16 million views, including one important view from the godfathers of metal themselves.

Metallica took notice of the performance and had kudos for the kids, saying “Nice work, boys,” and “These kids rock.” provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
