Remember the 82-year-old guy who sang Drowning Pool’s Bodies on America’s Got Talent? Or even the 96-year-old grandma who fronts her own metal band? These seniors left their stairlifts behind to rock out, proving that age is simply not a factor when it comes to loving heavy music.
But if any more proof is needed, just take a look at the footage below of an elderly woman having the time of her life at a Slipknot show in New Jersey. Have we found The ’Knot’s oldest fan?
Posted on YouTube by Caters Clips, the clip shows the woman sporting rather large earplugs and practically beaming as the last refrains of Spit It Out ring out across the PNC Bank Arts Center. Never taking her eyes off the stage and applauding The Nine’s efforts onstage, the footage of the as-yet-unidentified woman has so far been viewed over 25,000 times on YouTube.

“God bless this dear lady. I have never gone to there show because I felt a little to old to get in to it. You go girl,” reads one comment, posted by Richard Taylor.
“Literally one of the most lit clips I’ve ever seen of a Knot concert,” adds Ahroura Faggoli.
One commenter suggests that the woman is actually the mother of a Slipknot member, but she could just be a die-hard Maggot who would gladly follow the Iowans into battle.
