Cover Story: ‘Nothing Else Matters’

Where would Indian indie be without covers? Back playing ‘Mustang Sally’ every August? Oh, wait. Indiecision scours the interweb to find you great (and sucky) covers performed by Indian indie artists during live performances, studio sessions and whenever the urge to bust out ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ hits them. Presenting, Cover Story.

Song: ‘Nothing Else Matters’
Original Artist: Metallica
Cover Artist: Abhinav School Choir

Every once in a while you comes across a sparkling jewel of live entertainment (or like, a YouTube video of Chaw-lee); the kind you never thought you’d see, the kind that seems like it’s from some warped dream from a scarred childhood or the kind that will, well, just make your jaw drop!

Because, to be honest, which respectable school teacher would make his students sing a legendary metal anthem like ‘Nothing Else Matters’ at the age of seven… in a choir… at a singing competition?

However, as it turns out, these kids at Abhinav School aren’t that bad after all. Not that we’ve seen children choirs belting out metchul epicness (just yet) or anything, but hey, they’re all in height order,and not one of them lets go of their tightly clasped hands, and they’re all so perfectly in sync with the padre conductor up front and the little girl beating the cymbals. Plus, they hit quite a high note towards the end.

It’d be a real pity if they didn’t win, these br00tal kids.
(Also, their kvlt quotient is going to skyrocket to ginormous proportions when they grow older, listen to Metallica and then accidently tell their fellow metalheads, “Hey, I sang this with my school choir!”)
