Tonight, I was looking at the latest crop of recommendations for me on Amazon when I came across this CD: Rockabye Baby: Lullaby Renditions of Tool.

Yes, you got that right; Lullaby Renditions of Tool. It turns out that there's a whole line of covers of rock classics with titles of the formula "Rockabye Baby: Lullaby Renditions of X". The arrangers redo the originals as slowed-down instrumentals featuring gentle instruments such as glockenspiel and vibraphone, and market the results to rock-loving new parents as infant lullabies.

I started looking up some of the other covers after finding the Tool lullaby remake. I wasn't surprised to find the Beatles in the list. But Led Zeppelin? U2? Metallica? Pink Floyd? Some of the songs were still pretty good, even with the Stepford Lullaby treatment, while others were unrecognizable. The cover art on all of these has to be seen to be believed. Just chase the links.

The Nine Inch Nails one was still disturbing, despite the lullaby treatment. (Yes, oh yes, they had one for Nine Inch Nails. It's right here.)

Good grief. Is nothing sacred anymore?
