That kicked ass... That song can struggle without the drums, bass behind it. Plus you have two "children" essentially, going accoustic, with a big twist with her voice and it rocked. They didn`t get any `pity` that`s for sure.

@tipxs or you know their parents are really musical and their kids took an interest in their parents passion and learned a really good song that they and their parents probably really enjoy together

Looked like a potentially tough crowd too. Personally I liked the fret buzz, made it that little bit more raw :)

Wow - that entire performance gave me waves of chills down my back; especially during the opening lines of the verses. Anyone else?

mithraela have you ever even heard the original Everlong? Or any song played by an actual guitarist? The "buzzing" is part of the song.

@mithraela, that`s kind of a b*tchy thing to say, isn`t it? You`re going to find lazy people everywhere you go. Those kids are inexperienced, not lazy.

Her balloon belt adds some strangeness to it for sure. A Japanese kid could`ve played that guitar without it buzzing. American children are lazy, even when doing the things they enjoy.

Pretty sweet! The guitar doesnt need to be tuned... And its not that hes hitting the chords the wrong way lol o_O
His fingers arent strong enough yet to hold it all top E all the way down. Making the rattling.

well for me the whole charm of this was that they are inexperienced, flawed, unpolished, spontaneous, quirky and a bit odd - and damned ninja gutsy :-)

theres a lot of people hating on this, guys there are famous bands/artists without half as much talent as these kids, they have a slight lack of experience... but theyre kids!! for their ages this is amazing!

its not that the guitar needs to be tuned but the kid isn`t hitting the chords on the right spot, so theres rattling but its still way better than how i played guitar at his age.

"eh gutiar needs to be tuned"

yeah, just a little bit. Some of the older guitars I own just sound like crap. The one in the video looks pretty beat up.

Nice effort from the kids but bad choice of music. Personally, I hate foo fighters. Singing softly and suddenly screaming really loud doesn`t equal good music. IMHO.

The girls voice was annoying. Many will say she just needs to mature however if you listen to a young Christina Aguilara you could still hear her powerhouse voice even when she was very young. The kid played a good cover of the song. It would be cool if David Grohl gave him a guitar or something.The fact these two kids had the guts to get up there and perform is really what matters here.

Jesus, when her voice matures she is going to be freaking amazing. The other kid is pretty amazing too!

Well I was impressed! I couldn`t play a musical instrument if my life depended on it and if I sing it sounds like someone`s killing a beagle with a spork. But these kids sounded damn fine!

"The boy is going to be knee deep in tail pretty much any day now."

Yes, not to be graphic, but girls will love him. He fingers the guitar very well.

Is this burning man?

He can play. She can sing (her range is limited, however).

The kids were great, guitarist rocked. Her voice will mature as she hits puberty for sure but that performance was just grating on my brain. It hurt to listen once she started singing actually had to turn the volume down just to continue.

i love that it looks like the little girl got to dress herself and do her own makeup, suggests that this was something she really wanted to do and wasn`t just forced into it

Way to go to these kids. The kid playing guitar did other songs as well. I found Good Riddance. He apparently is in a band. I am impressed cause it can make ya pretty nervous playing and singing in front of a crowd of strangers
