Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl pens theme song for 10-year-old Ipswich drummer Nandi Bushell in round two of rock battle




A famous artist has written a theme song for a 'superhero' young drummer from Suffolk in the second round of their 'epic' online rock battle.

Dave Grohl, of Foo Fighters and Nirvana, penned the song for 10-year-old Nandi Bushell, of Ipswich , after she won the first round of their battle with her performance of Dead End Friends by Them Crooked Vultures – another of Grohl's bands – last month.

And for the second round Grohl took to social media yesterday saying he had something "special" up his sleeve for round two.

Sharing his performance of the song online – which has since received millions of views – Grohl said: "Every superhero needs a theme song."

The song, which Grohl said he put together off the top of his head, describes Nandi as the "best drummer in the world" who "can play any song".

Nandi, who has become an internet sensation for her impressive drumming skills in recent years, has appeared on a number of TV shows, including the Ellen Show last year, adverts and has previously jammed with Lenny Kravitz.

She regularly posts drumming videos to her YouTube channel, which now has more than 160,000 subscribers.

We can expect to see more from their rock battle, after Nandi accepted Grohl's latest challenge.

Responding to Grohl's second round efforts, Nandi said: "I think it's the best song EVER, in the WORLD, EVER!!!

"Thank you so much Dave. You have raised the stakes to all instruments!"
