ICYMI: FFDP’s “Heavy Metal Grandma” Is Our New Favorite Metal Head

Five Finger Death Punch showed it does indeed have fans of all ages over the weekend.

The group was joined on Saturday (November 18) in Norway by a "Special Guest 'Heavy metal Grandma,'" a 70-year-old woman the group members spotted in the first row. The group invited her on stage for "Jekyll & Hyde," during which she jumped around and played air guitar while the band performed the song.

The group posted a video of the performance on Twitter, writing that "She is more metal than you."
