Meet the Three Mexican Sisters Whose Viral Videos Just Got Them a Record Deal
It's not often that the lead guitarist of Metallica says a drummer with a bow in her hair "kicks maximum ass." But that's what Kirk Hammett tweeted about 13-year-old Paulina when he saw a video of her and her sisters playing a cover of Metallica's "Enter Sandman." But Hammett was wrong about one thing — all three, who make up the band the Warning, kick maximum ass.
That "Enter Sandman" video, which has nearly 5 million views, was one of several covers the Warning uploaded to YouTube that have since gone viral. The band also covered Twisted Sister, AC/DC and Guns 'N Roses, and in the process they've become an Internet phenomenon. On Tuesday, the band took a big step away from being only Internet famous. They released their debut original EP, Escape the Mind, and with it gained some real attention. All of a sudden, their basement dreams might just be coming true.
