When you were a kid, did your parents ever force you to practice your band instruments? Like, literally locked you in a room to make sure you got 30 minutes of playing time in? Well, Gavin Martin, a 10 year old from St Louis, Missouri doesn’t look like he really minds rocking out on his drums. Plus, he’s totally killing his rendition of “Still Into You” by Paramore and it’s cool to watch him work.


And no way was this kid forced to practice. With that big smile on his face, and of course his rhythm, shows how much he just enjoys this. There’s a track behind him for guitar and vocals, but his drum part is right on point with the original. Plus he’s so into it, he’s truly a performer. According to Gavin Martin’s YouTube page, he’s been playing for three years in hopes to do this professionally one day. Plus, he loves to jam out to 90's grunge, which you might have been able to guess by the posters behind him (Nirvana, Good Charlotte, etc.). Also most of his covers on the channel are from that pop-punk-rock sector. The page also states that he “lives with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)“ and that they “hope these videos are a testament to the amazing talents kids on the Spectrum can posses.” They certainly are, and Paramore would definitely be impressed.
