[youtube]http://youtu.be/9NG0sRvUZg8[/youtube] Hard rock and hip-hop/R&B have co-existed since the early ’80s, when Eddie Van Halen contributed a blistering guitar solo to Michael Jackson’s “Beat It” in 1982 and Run DMC rapped over guitars on “Rock Box,” on their 1984 self-titled debut album.

Posted by on April 13, 2012

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bqpRoVxH2jc[/youtube]Meet the Children Medieval Band. They’re 23 years old – COMBINED. They also like Rammstein, apparently. What this cover of “Sonne” lacks in heaviness and intensity, it makes up for in pure adorableness. I mean, the drummer is a five year old girl that also plays the harp!
