Nandi Bushell shares powerful Linkin Park cover, band respond

After discovering Linkin Park and nu-metal recently, Nandi Bushell has tackled the band’s mega-hit Numb on drums…

Following her brilliant masked cover of Slipknot’s Duality, 11-year-old drummer Nandi Bushell is keeping things fairly heavy right now by tackling Linkin Parks Numb.

Nandi says she only discovered the band very recently (damn are you in for a treat now, Nandi!), sharing: I discovered Linkin Park this week! So many great songs! So this is nu-metal! I like the keyboards and the DJ scratching.

Chester Bennington had such an incredible voice,” she continues (yup, we’re with you there). He sang with real power. Loving your work.”

Happily, Linkin Park saw Nandi’s effort and responded on Twitter: Wow, this is awesome” with clapping and fire emojis, to which the young musician excitedly wrote back: Yes! Wow! This is amazing!!! Linkin Park thank you so much! Your music is so so so good!”

Wholesome, brilliant stuff:

In other Linkin Park news, last week the band’s classic Hybrid Theory single In The End surpassed one billion streams on Spotify – making it the first-ever nu-metal song to do so. Huge.
