These Kids Rock Tool’s “46 & 2” Harder Than Most Bands Ever Possibly Could

Fact: I’ve actually been playing guitar longer than I’ve been a Tool fan. I started guitar lessons when I was 13 and I only started getting into Tool when I was 16 when a friend of mine bought me a copy of Aenima for my birthday. I don’t know if that has anything to do with the fact that a bunch of kids rocked out the band’s song “46 & 2” with near perfection, but I felt like sharing (and sharing, as well know, is caring).

Below you can watch a video of students of Aaron O’Keefe, who come from various age ranges, rocking out the track. Pay particular attention to the bassist and drummer as they pretty much lose their shit. It’s inspiring to see the younger generation really dive into their instruments and have such a good time. Gives me a wee bit of hope that the music in the coming years won’t be as terrible as history would suggest.

    That was awesome. A lot of times when you hear a young singer, it sounds just like that, an adolescent singing(not that there is anything wrong with that) but that girl had a voice that was beyond her years. Reminded me of Flyleaf’s first singer. The whole band was tight.

      They’re all definitely talented. It’s great to nurture that talent and not just let the kids play simple, generic stuff that doesn’t challenge them and push their musical boundaries.

    Very impressive, and I agree Jonathan its awesome seeing kids challenging themselves. Tool isn’t exactly the easiest band to cover. I almost thought the singer was going to crack a few times, but she held her shit together. 5 stars from me…

    The drummer pulls a Lars at the end!
