TikTok: 5x Famous Rockstar accounts you should follow
TikTok is one of the most used social media apps on the planet and it has become even more popular over the last two years. At first it were mainly kids and teenagers that filmed themselves dancing, singing and lip-synch songs. They had their 30 seconds of fame as the short silly video loops became a viral thing.
Well, now it’s not a kids thing anymore. We see grandpa’s and grandma’s, moms and dads, cats and dogs and even actors, musicians and influencers doing crazy TikTok. It didn’t take long for TikTok finding its way into the rock and metal scene.
Indeed, famous rockers and headbangers like Metallica, AC/DC, Powerwolf, Sabaton, Mötley Crüe, Nikki Sixx, Guns ‘N Roses guitarist Slash, ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons, Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine, but also Lacuna Coil singer Cristina Scabbia for instance, started up an account. And of course there are more rock ‘n rollers (soon to be) out there in the labyrinth of video loops.
