If your baby is 555 then you're 666, right? Worlds are colliding here folks, as the crew at Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star have announced LULLABY VERSIONS OF SLIPKNOT for a July 2, 2013 digital release. They've unleashed a preview stream of the lullaby version of "Before I Forget" (hear it on The Rock Father below), and if you pre-order the 12-song collection now via iTunes, you'll get that track right away. Corey Taylor and M. Shawn Crahan are both certified "Rock Fathers" in their own right, and the late Paul Gray had a little one as well.
If you love rock and roll, there's a good chance that you love SOCIAL DISTORTION. I do, and I fully expect that my little ones will as well.

On June 25th, LULLABY VERSIONS OF SOCIAL DISTORTION will hit digital retailers, but if you want a preview - The Rock Father has one for you right now.

Summer in America - time to break out the Red, White and Blue, get outside and enjoy the great outdoors, and have some fun with the family in the pursuit of happiness. In the spirit of summer, I've once again teamed up with my bum-covering friends at gDiapers - the makers of adorable cloth diaper covers with disposable, biodegradable (in home composts) inserts - for another giveaway. This time around, we're giving you a chance to score the all-new Grandstand Stripe gPants for your little rocker!
A lot of you know this already, but I love the DROPKICK MURPHYS. If you read The Rock Father regularly, you also know that I'm a big fan of the lullaby collections released by Roma Music Group under their Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star line. Well, on June 18, two worlds collide when LULLABY VERSIONS OF DROPKICK MURPHYS hits the streets... and your baby's nursery. The TTLRS crew was kind enough to let me be the first to share the full details on the new album, along with the cover art, tracklisting, and a preview stream of "I'm Shipping Up to Boston." And, if you pre-order it now on iTunes, you'll get the track right away as an instant download!
ALANIS MORISSETTE is one of my wife's favorite artists. Years ago, I even took her to see the former YOU CAN'T DO THAT ON TELEVISION! actress and DOGMA God live in concert... a gesture of possible reciprication for the MR. BUNGLE concert I once brought her along for. All this said, she was pretty happy when I informed her that the folks at Roma Music Group are releasing LULLABY VERSIONS OF ALANIS MORISSETTE under their popular Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star line. This new collection is up for pre-order on iTunes right now, and is set to bring a dozen of Morissette's biggest hits to your baby's nursery on June 11, 2013. Get a preview of "Ironic" along with the whole tracklisting below.
On June 4, the folks at Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star will release LULLABY VERSIONS OF JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE, a twelve-track collection of songs that span the pop icon's full career - all reworked into "lush instrumental versions" perfect for your baby's nursery. Available for pre-order on iTunes as of today, the track selection runs the gamut from JT's solo work to his collaboration with Madonna, and some hits by *NSYNC. Check out the full tracklisting and cover art below, along with a track stream of "Mirrors" right now. Yeah, I may be "The Rock Father," but I won't lie - I've got JUSTIFIED and FUTURESEX/LOVESOUNDS in my collection here at Rock Father HQ (haven't picked up 20/20 yet).
