These senior citizens singing rock songs will make your day

They call themselves Young@Heart, a singing collective founded by a bunch of senior citizens in 1982 at their old-age home in western Massachusetts. Members range from 75 to 92 with various incarnations touring the world and appearing on national TV.

Their motto? “It’s possible to grow old without growing boring.”

They tackle music from everyone from Madonna and John Lennon to Cake and Green Day. I want this to be me in the future. (Thanks to Tom for the link.)
