“Hush little baby, don’t say a word, and never mind that noise you heard, it’s just the beast under your bed, in your closet, IN YOUR HEAD!!! (Enter well-known Kirk Hammett guitar riff.) EXIT LIGHT…..ENTER NIGHT…..TAKE MY HAND….OFF TO NEVER NEVER LAND!!!!!”
Of course an “Enter Sandman” reference right off the bat is appropriate here. This is a Metallica lullaby CD, and if ever a Metallica song was created that lent itself to lullabyes it was this one. Just like the Pixies version of this get-to-sleep-quick remedy, this CD has 11 instrumental lullaby renditions of well-known Metallica songs for the moments before your little baby goes to sleep. Now you probably never thought you might someday buy a CD of Metallica kids lullabies 20 years ago when you blasted …And Justice For All in your parents’ garage. But we’re here to tell you it’s OK, and that it won’t detract from your metal cred regardless of what your high school self might have thought about it.
The Rockabye Baby! Lullaby Renditions of Metallica CD contains tracks from you and your mini-metal lover’s favorite albums including “One,” “Wherever I May Roam,” “Fade To Black,” “Nothing Else Matters,” “Master of Puppets,” and “…And Justice for All.” Sound pretty freakin’ cool? It sure does. No baby metalhead should ever lay down their widdle brains for a long sleep without falling asleep to Metallica and that Napster-loving, son-of-a tennis-player, Lars Ulrich.
On that note, we found this animated little parody about the Metallica/Napster situation to be somewhat entertaining, but we must WARN you that it has language which might not be appropriate for the little ones or an uptight co worker:
