It’s sort of like cannibalized, only it involves the ruin of classic metal tunes as they’re converted into music appropriate for little, still-developing ears.
Fuck that shit. If you can’t play Warrant’s actual material for your newborn’s feeble cochleas, then there’s something wrong with you.
Coming soon to a record store near you is Little Headbangers: Hair Metal Goes Lullaby Vol. 2, which includes “soothing, peaceful and comforting” covers of some classic 1980s metal tracks.
I couldn’t get passed the first song…a cover of “18 and Life” by Skid Row.
You can try for yourself at the end of this post, where all the songs are streaming.
Other songs mangled and lullabalized? Ozzy Osbourne’s “Shot in the Dark,” Dokken’s “Into The Fire,” Cinderella’s “Heartbreak Station,” Def Leppard’s “Hysteria” and Warrant’s “Sometimes She Cries.”
Shameless shit, this is.
