Geetle and Pookie prefer kid music.  Sesame Street, Clifford, Mickey Mouse.  They like riding in my car because of Sirius 116 Kids Stuff.

We are slowly exposing them to other kinds of music.  They do well with most classical music because it reminds them of Baby Einstein.  They like some Elvis and older rock.

But, how do you get them to listen to the good stuff.  Led Zepellin, Dr. Dre, Metallica.  That stuff is too heavy for little kids, right?

Well, somebody has finally decided to do something about it.  There is a CD full of Metallica songs that have been tamed for the timid child.   Rockabye Baby! Lullaby Renditions of Metallicatakes the metal, angst, and passion of one of the kings of metal and reinterprets it using the “soothing sounds of the glockenspiel, vibraphone, melltoron and other instruments will lull your baby into a sweet slumber.”

What could possibly be better than that?  Possible side effects include head banging (make sure you pad the walls of the crib), matress burning (even babies must hold up a lighter for the classics), cravings for black t-shirts, and sneaking beer into the milk bottles.
