A group of Japanese schoolchildren join a bear for some heavy metal-style 'headbanging' in this aww-inducing call-and-response video.

We're not sure what caused the bear to start acting like a furry Ozzy Osbourne. Maybe the zoo was piping Slayer over the PA system. Or perhaps he's one of those rock-and-roll bears from the Country Bears Jamboree.

Watch this rocking bear in action below. For more awesome heavy metal animals, head over to Loudwire.
