Rock On, Grandma!

Lonely girls, kittens, and kids dancing to "Jai Ho" have all had their days in the YouTube sun. Now, someone at Funk Jelly is making the case for metal grannies, complete with a top-6 list. These grandmas rock at clubs and festivals, not on porches. I'm not sure it's going to catch fire, but it's weirdly perfect timing for TOTN, because we're wrapping up our show today with members of the metal group Anvil. They've been slogging out the rock-n-roll lifestyle for 30 years... Wonder if they're popular with the over-60 crowd?
