See 6-Year-Old Boy Cover Korn's "Here to Stay" With Kid Band

O'Keefe Music Foundation students crush nu-metal classic

Korn are certainly not the first band that comes to mind in a list of metal groups who are easy to cover. Between bassist Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu's complicated slap-bass lines, James "Munky" Shaffer's off-kilter guitar licks and, most of all, Jonathan Davis' emotionally erratic and uniquely nasally vocal wails, the nu-metal giants aren't exactly karaoke mainstays.

However, one six-year-old boy named Michael Dalhover and his band of fellow youngsters make it look easy. In a new video created by the O'Keefe Music Foundation, Dalhover gets behind the mic and crushes an absolutely spot-on (for a six-year-old, that is) cover of "Here to Stay," the lead single from Korn's 2002 opus, Untouchables.

Alongside four other musicians whose ages range from nine to 18, the first-grade-aged metalhead manages to nail Davis' complex vocal inflections, and he even carries the rising-and-falling melody with impressive ease. He genuinely sounds like someone whose spent a lot of time listening to Korn — and as it turns out, he has!

According to the video description, Dalhover's parents are huge Korn fans who've been taking their son to see the nu-metal band for years, so it's no wonder his performance sounded like a second-nature showing. This might be Dalhover's big break into the metal world, but from the sounds of it, it seems like he's ... here to stay (please clap).
