The most adorable musical feud ever just went up a notch. Again.

One of the most heartwarming music stories of the year has been the interplay between 10-year-old musical prodigy Nandi Bushell and Dave Grohl. They started going back and forth with drum battles before Dave wrote her a song. She’s now returned the favour by writing and performing a song in tribute to Dave. And just like Dave, she played all the instruments herself. I quote:

“Mr Grohl, the song you wrote for me was truly, truly EPIC! You really are LEGENDARY!” wrote Bushell. “I wrote a song for you to say THANK YOU! I made up and played all the instrument parts myself, just like you! It’s called ‘ROCK and GROHL, The EPIC Battle’! I hope you love my song, as much as I love your song for me! Whoever wins this round, it’s been an HONOUR to battle you. The Rock Gods of old are happy!”

“Rock and Grohl” was recorded in a real studio with two producers. The lyrics go: Rock’n’roll is my love/Rock’n’roll is my soul/Rock and Grohl will help me change the world!”

I really like this kid. What will she do when she grows up?
