AC/DC is the World’s Perfect Rock Band. It’s a scientifically-proven fact, and if you don’t believe me… well, I bet that there’s a study out there somewhere that can back that up.

Whether scientific or subjective, I do believe that there is not, nor will there ever be a hard rock band with as much “right” as AC/DC.

My daughter seems to agree.

acdcaddieAsk Addie (3 and a half as of this writing) “What’s your favorite AC/DC song?” and she will proudly answer “Back in Black.” Chalk it up to good parenting, as I think that’s a fine sign that we’re doing something right. 

History has shown that AC/DC is the perfect band for getting people moving. Rockers or not, when an AC/DC song comes on the radio, the P.A. at a sporting event, or in one of the countless movie trailers that seem to think “Shoot to Thrill” is the band’s only song, you will see feet stomping and heads bobbing.

It’s the simplicity and power of the riff that compels, but the melodies that transcend the ages.

Is it weird to love “Highway to Hell” performed as a Lullaby?

I didn’t think so.

Sure, they've been lullabied before, but the folks at Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star (Roma Music Group) have just released a new collection of AC/DC lullabies. Check out the tracklisting and cover art below...
