Just when you think there's no possible way Dave Grohl and Nandi Bushell's drum battle could get any better, it does. Every time. The battle began in August, when the 10-year-old prodigy drummed a cover of "Everlong" and challenged Grohl. He accepted, and played Them Crooked Vultures' "Dead End Friends."
The young viral sensation answered with her own rendition of the song — going so far as to dress like the Foo Fighters frontman. And then he wrote a theme song for her! After understandably freaking out, Bushell went back to work and recorded an original song of her own, dedicated to the rockstar. She aptly called it "Rock and Grohl, The Epic Battle."
"Mr Grohl. The song you wrote for me was truly, truly EPIC! You really are LEGENDARY!" Bushell wrote in a YouTube description. "I wrote a song for you to say THANK YOU! I made up and played all the instrument parts myself, just like you! It’s called ‘ROCK and GROHL, The EPIC Battle’! I hope you love my song, as much as I love your song for me! Whoever wins this round, it’s been an HONOUR to battle you. The Rock Gods of old are happy!"
The future rockstar also revealed that she recorded her song at Metropolis Studio. "I got to work with 2 awesome producers Josh Wilkinson and Joe Rubel who taught me how to record instruments and make my song sound EPIC," she exclaimed. "Being in the studio was one of the best experiences of my life. I loved it!"
