Jaxon Smith wasn't even alive when Soundgarden's song 'Jesus Christ Pose' first hit airwaves in 1991, but that hasn't stopped him from learning how to play it on drums. And amazingly well at that.

The 8-year-old from Canada has become a YouTube sensation known as Jaxon Drums. The boy drummer, who is completely self-taught, received national recognition when he appeared on The Today Show to showcase his considerable chops.

The YouTube video that put him on the Internet map, a cover of Foo Fighters' 'Pretender,' is now closing in on the one million views mark.
