So little 8 year old Juliet created quite a internet sensation with her brilliantly amazing, "My First Hardcore Song" video on Youtube earlier this month.
I don't think I'll ever get tired of watching this. The trampoline breakdown & flying stuffed animals is the raddest thing I've ever seen in my life!
A lot of people were talking about this video last week. Everyone seemed to get a kick out of it and I see why, the girl is adorable. Of course some people seemed to dig it more than others. Normal folk without any knowledge of modern hardcore/metal see a little girl rocking out over some loud instruments and chuckle. What they don't seem to get are the major lulz derived from lil Juliet taking cliches from this music genre and showing just how ridiculous they really are.
The stuff she references like "opening up the pit," "getting your two-step on" and even singing about her most cherished friendships (replacing her "crew" with dog and fishes) are usually reversed for dudes like this...only they're dead serious when they do it!
Anyways, seeing Juliet's rapid rise to internet stardom reminded me of a video I saw years ago. Allow me to introduce, Death Metal Rosie!
Lol @ her coughing/spitting at the end! She's basically doing her best cookie monster impersonation...and it rules!
That's it. Kids listening to & loving metal/hardcore with their folks. Brings a smile to my face.
