Elementary boys hit the big times as a rock band

LOS ANGELES (KNBC/NBC) - A group of young rockers from Pacifica, CA are now known as the youngest rock band in the world and although they're only in elementary school, they've already made it big.

The group is made up of five boys, ages 10 to 11, who prefer rock legends over Justin Bieber. The group was influenced so much they decided to call their band "Haunted by Heroes."

The band is made up of Getty, Charlie, Brandon and twins Chris and Nick.

Together they're known as the youngest rock band in the world and are making waves in Los Angeles, playing at venues they normally wouldn't be old enough to enter. Later this month they'll be on the same bill as Motley Crue at the Sunset Strip Music Festival.

The boys started rocking not long after they were rocked in the cradle and first met at day care. That's when they were only toddlers and drumming on toys.

Then they moved onto video games, something they all agreed has helped them be better musicians.

Haunted by Heroes mostly performs their own material, written by Nick.
