We all like to think and hope that when we're ancient we'll be able to have a good laugh and joke without turning into a full on fossil.

Two elderly men in Germany have reportedly escaped from the nursing home where they resided in order to high-tail it across town to attend a giant metal festival over the weekend.

Unfortunately, the home soon realised they were missing and alerted the police.

They were found "disoriented and dazed" at 3am at Wacken Open Air, the world's biggest heavy metal festival.

"They obviously liked the metal festival", Neufeld said.

While it's not known which bands the two men were keen on checking out, it appears that they weren't too happy about being forced to leave the festival grounds, and had to be escorted out with the help of a taxi and police patrol auto.

Sure, it wasn't the outcome they were hoping for, but getting a police escort back to a nursing home is pretty badarse.

According to Deutsche Welle, the world-renowned festival sold out with an expected attendance of 75,000 people. And potentially getting involved with a mosh pit or two.

Headline acts this year include Danzig, Judas Priest, Hatebreed, In Flames, Running Wild, Arch Enemy, In Extremo and Eskimo Callboy. One thing is for sure, these two elderly gentlemen are GOALS.
