If you aren't familiar with Babymetal, they're a three-piece J-pop-influenced metal band. Their lead singer, Suzuka "Su-Metal" Nakamoto, is only 18 years old. The other two singers, Moa "Moametal" Kikuchi and Yui "Yuimetal" Mizuno, are just 16 years old.

And the commenters were upset that Rob Zombie was posing with a band like Babymetal, whom people were calling an embarrassment to "real" metal bands. Except Rob Zombie didn't have any time for that nonsense.

You can check out Babymetal's single "Karate" off their newest album Metal Resistance below. By the way, their first album was certified gold and their newest album peaked at No. 2 on the U.S. hard rock charts.
