Watch Green Day, System Of A Down, and More Covered On Teeny Tiny Drums
Have you ever been at a metal show, watching a drummer wail away during a killer fill, and thought, ‘Man, this guy’s good, but he’d be so much better if he were somehow playing on the lid of a toilet?’ Well, now you can live out that weird fantasy, because one YouTuber has uploaded a series of videos featuring him performing classic rock covers on itty-bitty drums perched atop his toilet.
The drummer, whose channel is called, of all things, Miniature Drums, performs a number of rock songs on teeny skins, using what look like Q-tips or pieces of spaghetti as drumsticks. The channel is described as the “only channel where giant drummers are welcomed”, so maybe the entire undertaking goes down in a giant’s toilet, and this is actually a full-sized kit. I don’t know, I’m not a doctor.
Watch a teeny-weeny cover of Green Day’s Holiday below:
Here’s a diminutive version of System Of A Down’s Toxicity:
And here’s the littlest cover of Guns N’ Roses’ Sweet Child Of Mine you’ve ever witnessed:
Pretty adorable. If only all bands could play tiny music on top of a toilet.
Meanwhile, Green Day are about to head out on their Hella Mega Tour with Fall Out Boy and Weezer, so if you want to catch them live, you can do so at one of the dates listed below. But be forewarned: drummer Tré Cool will probably be playing a normal-sized drum kit.
