In one punch of an anarchists fist, favored punk classics such as “White Riot,” “Sheena Is A Punk Rocker,” “Sex And Drugs And Rock ‘N’ Roll,” and “Smash It Up” could easily replace old-school lullaby standards as quickly and painlessly as the above-mentioned anarchist is willing to lay down. Not saying that yawn-fests like “Ba Ba Blacksheep” or the annoyingly inquisitive nature of “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” will fall by the wayside, but they’ll definitely be a tad tame in comparison to the songs that your little one could soon adopt as their own.
From the big ol’ brains of the good-doers and music lovers over at punkrockbaby.com comes a completely lullibied version of punks most recognizable gems. Your little thrasherdoodle is guaranteed to drift into sleep’s proverbial arms with the songs that ebbed and flowed with our own weird-and-often-chaotic teenage years, which some of us may not have shaken quite yet (raises hand) and perhaps aren’t desiring to do so anytime soon (raises hand again). Never have you heard the ferocity of rebellion from bands like The Damned, The Ramones, The Sex Pistols, and The Clash as light and twinkle-twankly as you do on this CD of nighttime, punk rock lullabies. If the image of Johnny Rotten angered at the lullaby genre’s blatant thievary of his music doesn’t put a cheshire grin on your face, perhaps the somewhat-subtle irony of this CD will: that punk, written and sung in the hopes that people would wake up to the serious social and political issues of the time, is the same kind of music that is now making them go to sleep. OH THE HUMOR! OH THE AWESOMENESS!
