It’s been said by old farts like yours truly that modern-day bands composed of people in their 20s and early 30s have a lot to learn. For instance, I see bands with bassists playing with their ankles close to each other. Not cool, man! But what happening band is going to listen to my advice on issues like proper bass player stance and soloing hair? Maybe it’s time the real kidz teach the so-called kidz a thing or two?

Check out the following video from Haunted by Heroes, “The World’s Youngest Rock Band.” What lessons might these musical mighty mites teach their parents, aunts, uncles, and older cousins—and the bands these adults dig?

    I just hope these kids aren’t up past their bed time. It’s nice to read that so many of them enjoy their math class, but I expect them to finish their homework before they rock out.

    I’d like to like this. I really would. But I can’t. Or I just don’t. It reminds me too much of what I figured a band going to Jack Black’s School of Rock would sound like. They definitely sounded better live (after I skipped the drum solo) than they did all polished up like in the first video, and I’m not saying the kids don’t have googobs of talent, but it just sounds so rote.

    • I once lucked into tickets for the original Paul Green School of Rock (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Paul_Green_School_of_Rock_Music) at one of their theater shows and, even as the parent of no-one there, found it pretty enjoyable. The kids with some skills kind of picked up for the beginners. I think the show was kind of set up to show off some cliched rock moves (see the title of the clip here, “Rockin is Ma Bizness”) but a good time was had by all.

      Man, but some of those Dads hadn’t seen a bar in so very long…

    Funny, if these were are own kids we’d be so proud. But since they aren’t I kinda threw up in my mouth a bit.

    Then again, if they were doing a song in a vein I actually liked, I might be more “way to go.” But this bland hard rock makes me think their parents are more clueless than their kids.
