Entire Neighborhood Gathers To Jam Out To Kids Band Covering This Cranberries Classic

One local kid band brought their whole community together with their incredible cover of a favorite 1990s classic. These talented children really rocked out while playing “Zombie” by The Cranberries. Judging by the rapt attention they received from their audience, the song seems to have gone over pretty well. Now that they’ve posted a video of their performance to social media, these musicians have amassed quite a few fans online!

This impressive kid band is called The Basement, and you can follow them on X. According to their bio, these four musicians are from Omaha, Nebraska. They’ve been together for less than a year, but you’d never be able to tell based on their playing. It sounds like they’ve been jamming together for ages!

Commenters loved seeing this neighborhood come together to support this amazing kid band. It’s safe to say that these young musicians really killed it with their rendition of “Zombie” by The Cranberries.

“I wish I had their number while planning my 6 year old’s bday party,” joked one user. “I’d be the ‘cool mom’ for sure. Every preschooler remembers their first moshpit.”

“Shout out to young rock bands, we need more like The Basement to keep rock alive!” another added.

These kids are rocking out to all the old hits!

In another video on YouTube, The Basement shared footage of a live peformance at an actual venue! This kid band played the Candlelight Lounge in February, and they absolutely crushed their setlist filled with old and new favorites. Songs included “Blitzkrieg Bop” by The Ramones, “All the Small Things” by Blink-182, and, of course, “Zombie” by The Cranberries!

Once again, commenters were dazzled by these fantastic musicians! Some adults were especially thrilled to see these children performing the songs they grew up with. This kid band really knows their music history!

“Amazing seeing young people of today playing the music from my youth,” one user said. “Amazing covers guys. You should all be proud!”

We hope The Basement keeps on jamming, because they clearly have tons of talent!
