Pantera’s ‘Domination’: See the Kid Band cover that got the cops called


Beyond their seismic impact on the sound of heavy music, Pantera are still remembered as world-class troublemakers who indulged in all kinds of mischief throughout their intense history as a band. Therefore, we’re sure the four members would be proud to see 10-year-old vocalist Colt M. Shedden and his child bandmates act like some tried-and-true ones. Cowboys from Hell. The latest offering from the endlessly entertaining O’Keefe Music Foundation – whose students have already performed everything from Rammstein’s “Du Hast” to Slipknot’s “Wait and Bleed” – features Shedden and his teenage peers tearing up a cover of Pantera’s “Domination” with such force and volume as the cops showed.

The fifth’s voice isn’t yet shredded like Phil Anselmo’s, but he still has an intuitive understanding of the blisters Cowboys from Hell standout, as did the rest of the band – 15-year-old lead guitarist Landon Siebens, 16-year-old drummer Nate Tharp, 18-year-old bassist Fritz Dannemiller and 18-year-old rhythm guitarist Alex Sutherland. Things always get rowdy at the O’Keefe residence, but this time the fuzz even popped up after a neighbor complained about the racketeering. It is how you earn your metal bands. Watch the completely heartbreaking performance above via YouTube.

In addition to producing heartwarming, family-friendly renditions of metal classics, the O’Keefe Music Foundation provides free music education for children and teens. Find out about the organization, buy their music and, if you can, donate on their official website.
