At 13, Matty Healy was pulled onstage by Green Day, an experience the future the 1975 singer later called his “defining moment” in becoming a musician.
“Mike Dirnt was f*cking there,” Healy says to Spin. “I jumped up, and he put his bass on me…10,000 people in f*cking Newcastle Arena!”
There’s no doubt joining your favorite band onstage at a young age is life-changing. There’s also no doubt it’s absolutely adorable for everyone watching. That being said, we’ve rounded up 10 times kids joined bands onstage, and it was simply the cutest.
1. Green Day
This tiny kid now-famously shreds through two-thirds of Green Day’s nine-minute epic “Jesus Of Suburbia,” deservingly amassing over 2.5 million views on YouTube since the concert in 2009.
2. Twenty One Pilots
If you need something to brighten your day, look no further. Tyler Joseph was joined by this adorable little fellow onstage at what looks to be a stripped-down Twenty One Pilots performance. Be prepared: As soon as Joseph plops the toddler on his shoulders, your heart will melt.
During soundcheck, this 13-year-old destroyed drums on Blink-182’s lead California single, “Bored To Death.”
He did so well that Blink-182 brought him onstage again later that night—after the crowd literally wouldn’t leave when the concert finished.

This unbearably cute Warped Tour story broke last weekend. Knocked Loose invited 7-year-old future rock star Luna onstage for guest vocals on “Counting Worms.”
