Forget One Direction, Your Kid’s New Favorite Band Could Eat One Direction For Breakfast

100_2308-copyBefore you watch the videos below, you need to go grab one of your terribly adorable spawn and make them watch with you so you can not only be the coolest parent ever, but also so you can tell me their reaction in the comments. My kids like pretty okay music. My little daughter claims to be a Justin Bieber fan but she doesn’t own any of his music, or any of his merchandise, and she probably couldn’t even name you a single Bieber song. We are into music up in herrrrre. We play music for our kids constantly, we take the older ones to shows, we argue the merits of The Beatles vs. The Rolling Stones and encourage our kids to be as into music as we are. Music is fun! Music is great! But when you have kids, especially girls, because this shit is more marketed towards girls, you probably loathe all of that boy band simpy baby baby baby stuff as much as I do, so when something amazingly cool like this comes along you share it with your kids and hope they find it cooler than whatever garbage they see on The Disney Channel. Ladies and Gentleman, boys and girls, I present to you COMPRESSORHEAD:

If there is any justice in the world, one day we will be able to buy our kids Compressorhead T-shirts and action figures at the mall. They are so metal, am I right? I haven’t seen any US dates scheduled for the band, but Compressorhead are scheduled to play with the Red Hot Chili Peppers and The Killers at Australia’s Big Day Out festival this summer.

And my kids are already begging me to go see them.
