These kid’s play gives me hope for the rock and rolls future.  Must be some proud parents when you have the neighbors over for a beverage, and your kids are blasting Metallica tunes. Time to revolt against the Home-Owners Association.  The band performing the street-side Metallica number is called Hammerhead made of 3 brothers. Abe Ismert, Eli Ismert and Henry Ismert. Hammerhead has been together for years. Like  4-, 7- and 9 years old.  I hope this trend catches fire and a new order of rockers is on its way to save us all.  Next, I would like to see this band on the bill for next November at Ford Field. I’d put them on after Pantera on the show. Metallica themselves announced their upcoming studio album,72 Seasons, and shared the first single “Lux Aeterna.” The 72 seasons album arrives on April 14, 2023. Metallica will stop here for a WRIF Presents show on November 10th & 12th at Ford Field. Surprisingly, new studies are showing the children who were given music lessons over the school year tested on average three IQ points higher than the other groups. If you can teach them at least one lesson they will remember the rest of their lives. Please teach them that the band Imagine Dragons is NOT Hard rock.

Watch Kid Band Play Metallica's 'Eye of the Beholder' on the Street

You've never seen a kid band play -era Metallica quite like this band. Or maybe you have. But the proof is in the pudding - an amateur video has gone viral for showing a trio of pint-sized thrashers killing Metallica's 1988 track "Eye of the Beholder" on an outdoor storefront.
