Our grandparents love The Beach Boys or Sam Cooke. If they’re really cool they still reminisce about their Jimi Hendrix days or the time they caught Led Zeppelin in concert. It’s only natural to wonder how ‘cool’ we will be when we’re wearing diapers, driving down the highway at 29 miles per hour. I’ve always thought, “I’m going to be the grandpa who still jams out to Nirvana and Linkin Park.”

It looks like one grandpa has beat me to the hard rock punch, with literally a hard rock punch.

Check out possibly the coolest old man/rocker in the universe, slowly driving in his car, windows rolled down, going absolutely berserk to this Metallica song, conjuring the call to Ktulu all by himself, and he don’t care who sees it!

Seek and destroy, gramps. Because nothing else matters. Not when you’re at that age, folks. So remember, live everyday like it’s your last on that crazy as all hell planet.
