It is my duty to warn you that the video that I am about to share is most certainly not-family-friendly, and also probably not-safe-for-work, unless you work somewhere really cool. What just happened is that GWAR frontman Oderus Urungus (who may have Dave Brockie in his belly) recently sat down at the offices of Loudwire in Manhattan for a reading of Margaret Wise Brown's classic children's book, GOODNIGHT MOON. Now, being that this site is called "The Rock Father," you should understand the significance of why I'm posting this... It's the singer of GWAR reading a book that I, as a parent, have read to my children countless times. If you've read it, and understand the mighty power of GWAR, you will appreciate this video. If you do not understand the metal majesty of Anarctica's finest band, I urge you to read a different article, right now (this one is good). You have been warned.

As I sit here on a Monday night, my office windows open to let in the cool Fall breeze, sipping a pumpkin spice coffee as I nurse myself back from a cold... I'm listening to some perfect music for the season - a song made famous by THE MISFITS. Now, I'm not listening to the original version, but to a lullaby version of one of their most lyrically-inappropriate songs for this site: "Last Caress."  Like many of my generation, the song first hit my ears via the 1987 METALLICA cover on THE $5.98 E.P.: GARAGE DAYS RE-REVISITED.  Now, you can introduce the early music of Glenn Danzig and Jerry Only to the youngest member of your family, with LULLABY VERSIONS OF THE MISFITS, the latest collection from the Roma Music Group and their TWINKLE TWINKLE LITTLE ROCK STAR collection. Set for release on October 1 (perfect for Halloween), the set just went live on iTunes for Pre-Orders, with "Last Caress" as an instant download. Check out a preview below...
