10-Year-Old Covers Rage Against The Machine In Support Of Black Lives Matter

Child rock prodigy Nandi Bushell has covered Rage Against The Machine’s “Guerrilla Radio” in support of Black Lives Matter.

The 10-year old drummer played the lead single from the band’s 1999 album The Battle of Los Angeles, rocking out on the drum set and strumming the electric guitar and bass as well.

“Solidarity in the Fight to End Racism! #fightracism #blacklivesmatter #enoughisenough,” Bushell’s parents wrote in the song’s description on YouTube. “This song is one of [Nandi’s] favourite songs. Nandi has loved @rageagainstthemachine since she was a baby.”

In a follow-up tweet, Bushell’s parents shut down replies to the cover using “All Lives Matter,” tweeting, “With Love and Respect to all, it’s #BlackLivesMatter. All life is equally beautiful and important. Replying with ‘All Lives Matter’ disregards the message and IS the problem. Acknowledge #BlackLivesMatter.”

Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello retweeted the performance with the caption, “Well now we are on the right track.”

Bushell, who is a native of Ipswich, Suffolk, had posted drumming covers of Queens of the Stone Age‘s “No One Knows,” Nirvana‘s “In Bloom” and even took to the stage with Lenny Kravitz ahead of his June 2019 gig at London’s O2 arena.
