Whatever boys can do, girls can do better... Alright, so maybe not better, but just as well. At least that's what's being said of three sisters from Monterrey, Mexico whose metal band "The Warning" has been gaining well-deserved attention.
The Villarreal girls, whose range in age from 10 to 15, play their own material as well as solid - if surprising - covers of songs like Metallica's "Enter Sandman."

Their riffs are impressive as their hard work ethic. In between school work and hanging out with friends, the girls practice for three hours every day. Three hours. What started as a fun hobby has naturally evolved into dreams of stardom.
A GoFundMe campaign has been set up to help the sisters afford tuition and travel costs of around $30K that would allow them to attend Boston's Berklee College of Music's esteemed summer program.
Of course not everyone has been so supportive of their musical style.
What are sweet-looking girls doing playing electric guitars when they should wearing pink lipgloss and flaunting their midriffs like Britney and Miley before them?
“Sometimes people think it’s kind of impossible we play rock because we are girls and we are young,” said Daniela, the eldest Villarreal sister.
But one listen is enough to convert even the most hardened skeptic. There's no denying these girls have got "it."
“Rock is for everyone. Music is for everyone,” said middle child and drummer, Paulina. “Girls have the same ability as boys do.”
And even if Metallica's isn't your bag (personally, I would have preferred the Pixies), seeing these girls break the mould—and then stomp all over it with talent and panache—has got this mama head-banging and fist-pumping in her kitchen.
