Nandi Bushell is a 10-year-old musician known for her covers of various alternative bands like Rage Against The Machine, Green Day, Nirvana, Foo Fighters and more. Recently, on August 17th, Nandi Bushell posted a video of her covering Foo Fighters’ “Everlong” on drums. Except this time at the end of her cover, she challenged Dave Grohl himself to a drum battle.

Dave Grohl accepted her challenge and responded this week with a video.

“I havn’t played that song since the day I recorded it in 1997. Our drummer Taylor Hawkins plays that song Everlong for us every night, but Nandi in the last week I’ve gotten at least 100 texts from people all over the world saying this girl is challenging you to a drum off, what are you gonna do?”

It looks like this challenge might have a bit of back and forth to it, as Dave Grohl challenged Nandi to learn another song. He continued their drum battle by playing “Dead End Friends” by Them Crooked Vultures. That band is a supergroup, formed back in 2009 with Dave Grohl, John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin and Josh Homme from Queens of the Stone Age.

Not long after Grohl’s video was uploaded, Nandi Bushell posted her reaction video to the challenge. You can watch it below.

Well, Nandi had some practice time and has now responded to Dave with a crushing cover of Them Crooked Vultures! She ever mirrors Dave’s mannerisms!
