Oh, kids. They may have a preference for “Wheels on the Bus” or whatever KIDZ BOP purports itself to be, but what about real music? In the latest installment of “Kids React,” the clever minds at Fine Brothers Entertainment expose a group of kids between eight and eleven years old to none other than Metallica. Their responses are priceless.
While watching the music video for Metallica’s newest song “Hardwired” on a laptop, the kids share their initial thoughts. Tyler, 11, and Anita, 10, get it right away, and begin jamming out to the fast-paced guitar and drums. But others take a different stance. Jacob, 9, looks horrified, while Kelis, 10, describes the music as “so aggressive.”
After they’re done watching the video, the kids learn about the band they just watched. Have they ever heard of Metallica? Some have thanks to their parents, while one rogue child says he saw Kylie Jenner wearing a Metallica t-shirt once. No, child, no. But most have never heard of the band.
From there, the kids review pictures of the band, and listen to some of Metallica’s biggest hits on headphones while continuing to react.
