Now this is what we call a real music education program. Last week, children at Wattville Primary School in Birmingham, England (birthplace of Ozzy Osbourne among others), proudly displayed their metal colors with their rousing rendition of Iron Maiden's classic 1983 anthem 'Flight of Icarus.'
Not only do these musically oriented kids nail the song's soaring melody, but they amp up their performance with fist pumping, air guitaring, metal horns, and headbanging. You are never too young to convert to heavy metal and big ups to the teacher who exposed his or her charges to the power of Maiden and metal.
Noisecreep's personal fave? The kids who air guitar and slide on their knees while spinning on the floor like breakdancers. That's a bunch of future headbangers right there. Bruce Dickinson and company would be proud!
