Basically anyone with a wifi signal knows that the kids from Stranger Things are just about the cutest, cleverest little dudes since Shirley Temple. Maybe you even know that they've been kicking butt since before Stranger Things. For instance, Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin) played Gavroche, the junior revolutionary in Les Miserables on Broadway.

But Matarazzo isn't the only musical maven of the bunch. Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas) appeared on Last Week Tonight with John Oliver back in August, 2015 as part of the rousing chorus of kiddos, singing all about how Washington DC deserves to have fair representation in Congress (and gun laws! and weed!).

Remember when Caleb was too embarrassed to swear on Jimmy Fallon?

Looks like he didn't have that problem for John Oliver last year!

Sing out, Caleb!

He's always been a smart kid.

Bravo, Caleb! Can't wait to see what you come up with next!


McLaughlin isn't the only precocious, potty-mouthed pre-teen in the group. Check out Millie Bobbie Brown (Eleven) rapping all the lyrics to Nicki Minaj's verse in "Monster" with such accuracy it would make all of Minaj's alter-egos blush.
