Watch 8-Year-Old Girl Sing Slipknot’s ‘Before I Forget’ in Neighborhood-Destroying Video
At Loudwire, nothing is more heartwarming than kids playing Slipknot's music — even if you're a five-year-old seated on dad's shoulders, air-drumming perfectly at a 'Knot show. Today's proof that maybe everything in this world is going to be okay is the latest video from the O'Keefe Music Foundation, where a group of kids, fronted by an eight-year-old girl, perform "Before I Forget" and get involved in some residential chaos.
No, the kids don't throw an insane house part like Slipknot did in their music video for their Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses) hit, "Duality," but a chainsaw, battering ram and the destruction of a toilet, all of which are prominently featured here, should offer more than enough intrigue for those in pursuit of vicarious carnage.
One important note: this video was filmed in 2019, prior to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, which is why nobody is seen wearing a mask.
