This 96-Year-Old Grandma Fronts A Metal Band

She’s rad.

Throw the Devil horns up for 96-year-old Inge Ginsberg, ‘the death metal grandma’.

Wanna know her metal credentials? Well, she survived the Holocaust, acted as a spy for the Americans during WW2, and smuggled arms to fight the nazis. Then in the 50s, she moved to America and wrote songs with her husband that were sung by the likes of Dean Martin and Doris Day.

Oh, and she fronts metal outfit Inge & the TritoneKings.

Deffo more metal than you. Anyway, Inge put the band together when she was looking for a way to continue to make music and reach a whole new audience.

In 2015 the group entered the Eurovision Song Contest (for Sweden) with their track, Laugh At Death, which you can check out below.

Filmaker Leah Galant also made a film about nanna Inge’s life, which you can check out over at the New York Times.

Now, anyone for tea and biscuits?
