The crew at Roma Music Group just sent over a preview of their latest Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star collection, LULLABY VERSIONS OF BLINK-182, which will hit digital retailers on September 24, and that song is on it. It's also available as an instant download if you pre-order the album on iTunes.

People are always asking me about "punk rock for kids," in which case I direct them toward Chicago's very own purveyors of Kindie Punk, THE BOOGERS. But what about punk rock for babies? That's always tricky, but a good place to start is in the lullaby realm, and after dipping their toes into the punk rock waters with collections based on GREEN DAY, DROPKICK MURPHYS, and SOCIAL DISTORTION, the crew at Roma Music Group are getting ready to release LULLABY VERSIONS OF THE CLASH (out 9/10), a collection perfectly-timed with the release of a major CLASH retrospective. Check out the Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star version of "Should I Stay or Should I Go," and if you dig it - pre-order on iTunes now to get the track as an immediate download.

While Seattle might currently be a hotbed for Kids and Family Music, with The Not-Its!, Caspar Babypants, Johnny Bregar, The Board of Education, The Harmonica Pocket, and Recess Monkey being recognized as "The Kindiependent Collective," I can't help but think that it was nearly 21 years ago already that Cameron Crowe's SINGLES came out, rockin' a killer soundtrack that represented a harsher side of Seattle, featuring (among others), ALICE IN CHAINS, who also made an appearance in the film. Now, here I am a parent, and LULLABY VERSIONS OF ALICE IN CHAINS is being released, transforming songs like "Would?" into nursery-friendly jams for the youngest rockers on the planet. The crew at Roma Music Group hit The Rock Father with the full details on their upcoming release, due on August 27th as part of their Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star series. Check out the lullaby version of "Man in the Box" below, along with the clever cover art and tracklisting.
