68-Year-Old Hardcore Singer Known As 'The Grindmother' Is The Internet's Latest Crush

Grindcore is a pretty extreme genre of music that surfaced in the mid-1980s. If you took hardcore punk, thrash metal, crust punk, industrial, and noise rock, and threw them all in the oldest, rattly blender you had, you’d get grindcore. It’s definitely an acquired taste, and not one that you would think a 68-year-old grandma would not only rock out to, but thrive in.

When you take age gap into consideration, music is one of the first major differences that come to mind. If I turn the radio on nowadays, I often catch myself turning the steering wheel into the opposing lane at the same time just to make it stop. Grindmother has definitely bridged that gap and then some.

It all started when she went to her son’s recording studio to provide backup vocals (read: screams) for his band, Corrupt Leaders. It became clear that she had a knack for it, which led to her starting her own band with her son and releasing the single History Repeats that has been seen millions of times worldwide, earning her fans all over the world, which includes a huge following in Japan.

Check out their live rehearsal video below:

She caught the attention of many celebrities, one of which was Ozzy Osbourne, who tweeted her video last year.

Her popularity has risen steadily, and she and her band are now preparing to go on tour. Her friends don’t quite appreciate the music as much as she does, but it sounds like they’re supportive of her rise to fame.

She even did an interview recently on Canadian television. When she’s not screaming her lungs out, she sounds like any other grandma does. Who knows what hidden talents they’re all hiding from us.

The appreciation isn’t one way, either. She’s very thankful that her fans have accepted and encouraged her music.

5th Grade Girl Wrote A Hilarious Warning Note To A Boy Who Had A Crush On Her

Growing up is amazing. It’s a wonderful time in a person’s life when your mind is opening up and you’re making your transition from childhood to grown-up land. It’s intense, weird, and strangely beautiful.

And one of the best things about being a child is not having a filter — you feel compelled to say and do whatever you need to do in any situation. There’s an honesty in childhood that kind of gets lost on most people when they become adults.

But with that honesty comes a lot of brutal/hilarious situations.

Like this note a 5th grade teacher found one of her students, Zoe, wrote to a boy who likes her, Noah. And it’s a doozy.

It’s amazing to see that a child is capable of so much shade. Here are her full rules below:

  1. Do not touch my shoulder.

  2. Do not get behind me with all that playing + foolishness. (Don’t get behind me at all.)

  3. Do not speak to me unless it is a greeting, which will be never.

  4. Stop playing with me on the bus.

  5. I have a short temper with people and you ruin my day because you play 2 much. 

  6. Reread 500 times 

  7. You like me (as a gf) but I don’t like you (as a bf) I’m 2 young!

If you break any of these rules I’m calling my dad, my mom’s friend, my fake mom, and a janitor I know!

Shade level: infinity.
