We have seen several kids attempt to perform their favorite band or musician’s songs.

However, a few of them caught people’s attention—especially a ten-year-old Japanese girl named Yoyoka Soma, who covered “Bulls on Parade” by popular American rock band Rage Against the Machine.

Before getting into the main story, let’s take a quick stop and talk about the band itself.

Rage Against The Machine’s songs usually contain explicit lyrics, which pertain to subjects like politics, teenage rebellion, and some ideas about activism.

Their music is imbued with powerful messages, accompanied by a slice of hard rock sound. From demos to concerts, you can always hear the chaotic harmony of the roaring from their instruments.

As the video begins, Yoyoka flashes an innocent smile to the camera.

From the outset, people probably wouldn’t expect to see her perform a hard rock song. But as the music begins, she starts smashing her sticks to the drums while head-banging along to the rhythm.

Viewers are sure to be delighted by watching her smash her cymbals on the drum set.

At the same time, you’re also sure to get an adrenaline rush from her energy-pumping rhythm! Her skillful drumming will never cease to amaze you, as she hits every beat to perfection. Everything she plays is so in sync with the music—you only ever see a few kids like her that can do this! At the end of her performance, she waves her sticks again to the camera with a heart-warming smile.

She is quite a rocker.

From start to finish, Yoyoka accurately hits all the beats in progression with the song. She managed to break down the most intricate beat patterns with a big smile on her face. The way Yoyoka performs the song with such ease is enough to make anyone envious of her skills.

Her skill level is definitely above-average compared to the other drummers at her age.

Still, it’s not hard to imagine how much more she’ll grow in the next few decades!

Despite Rage Against the Machine’s adult-themed subjects and raging instrumentals, those never stopped Yoyoka from loving their music and interpreting it herself. Yoyoka is not the same as the other girls. Instead of singing Disney songs and imitating princesses, this girl became addicted to hard rock bands like Led Zeppelin and Nirvana.

If we had to guess, we’re thinking that her inspiration and interest in these bands likely came from her parents.

The thing about Yoyoka is that her family is music-oriented, and they already let her perform in their band, named KaneaiYoyoka. As she rocks with them at such a young age, her skills are enough to prove that she could nail almost anything that they teach her. Though she’s still young, if she keeps up at this rate, we’re guessing that she’ll have a seriously bright future in rock music!
