Add Linkin Park to the list of Nandi Bushell‘s many big-name fans.

The 11-year-old viral musical prodigy released a drum cover of LP’s single “Numb” over the weekend, noting that she just recently started listening to the band.

“So many great songs! So this is #numetal!” Bushell tweeted. “I like the keyboards and the DJ scratching. [Chester Bennington] had such an incredible voice. He sang with real #power.”

Upon seeing Bushell’s typically exuberant rendition of “Numb,” Linkin Park retweeted her video, along with the caption, “Wow, this is awesome,” plus an applauding and fire emoji.

“This is amazing!!!” Bushell replied. “Thank you so much! Your music is so so so good!”

Bushell previously made headlines last year for her drum battle with Dave Grohl. Her covers have also earned her fans including Rage Against the Machine‘s Tom Morello, Muse‘s Matt Bellamy and Metallica‘s Kirk Hammett.
