82-Year-Old Man Slays Drowning Pool’s ‘Bodies’ At America’s Got Talent, Is More Metal Than You

Written by Emmy Mack on June 8, 2016

Wrinkles? Arthritis? Bed pans? Watching reruns of The Bill?

There are few things more brutal than old age.

Which is why witnessing 82-year-old John Hetlinger screech Drowning Pool‘s metal classic Bodies is pretty much the most brutal thing you will ever see.

This grandpappy may wear his pants way up high, but he’s not afraid to get down and dirty.

The retiree went on America’s Got Talent to perform a rendition of the Texan rifflords’ savage fightclub banger, and needless to say, judge Simon Cowell probably should have borrowed one of old mate’s adult diapers before the audition kicked off.

And as if Hetlinger wasn’t already enough of a hardkent already, he also revealed that his pre-metal karaoke years were spent as a Navy pilot and program manager for an instrument that helped repair the Hubble Space Telescope.

UPDATE 09/06/16: Drowning Pool have invited the 82 year-old metal legend to join them on stage.
