Watch These Legendary Tweens Nail An 18-Minute Metallica Medley


Enter Sand pre-teen?

I don’t know what they’re called, but the three young bucks raging and ripping Metallica covers outside of a mall in Kansas City are American heroes. That is not hyperbole. It’s the truth. No need to “Make America Great Again” because what happened outside of the Country Club Plaza Mall on September 11 of all days is concrete proof that this country of ours is doing just fine, thank you very much.

Who are these kids? No clue. All we know is that they spent the afternoon of 9/11 playing a damn near flawless version of the “Justice Melody,” a five song run of songs from Metallica’s …And Justice for All that they play frequently at shows. The melody consists of “Eye of the Beholder,” “Blackened,” “The Frayed Ends of Sanity,” “… And Justice for All,” and back to “Blackened.”

Catherine Rose took the video of these future metal warriors (maybe turn your phone the long way next time, please), posted it on her Facebook page and poof, it went viral. It went so viral that Metallica themselves took notice and gave the boys some love, sharing the video on their Facebook page and prompting rumors (not really) that watching the video is the reason why Metallica hasn’t finished their upcoming album yet.

So far the video has been viewed over 77,000 times.

Say what you will, but there’s hope for America’s youth yet.
