Kid band Vuelta Atrás took the internet by storm with their rendition of “The Final Countdown” by Europe.

Vuelta Atrás is a rock band that has stuck together through thick and thin. Formed by five kids from the ages 12 to 14 years old in 2008 by their teacher, Jhonatan Quiñonez Flórez, the band took off largely thanks to their epic covers on YouTube.

The song by Europe is one of those awesomely bad songs that you just love to hate, but Vuelta Atrás’s version is something you don’t want to miss.

Just their look alone melts your heart, so when they start playing excellent music it’s impossible not to love.
