Jaxon Smith is an adorable six year old with one unbelievable talent. The little drummer is pretty much ready to join the Foo Fighters, if the above video of him rocking along to their song "Pretender" is to any indication.

According to the video's description, Jaxon was born in 2005 and weighed just one pound. He's grown up to be quite a rocker, performing songs by Rush, The Who, Heart (yep, "Barracuda"), the Silversun Pickups, Tool, Rage Against the Machine and more. For more of Jackson's amazing drumming, head over to the profile of YouTube user U2RUSHFAN.

Even more incredible? Jackson is described as self-taught. In his most recent video (featuring an upgraded, digital drum kit), Jackson drums along to The Who's "The Real Me."

Our favorite part of Jaxon's "Pretender" performance comes around 3:23, when he jumps back at the kid-size drum set after the bridge. All things considered, he looks pretty calm.
