Indoctrinating the sprog. It’s part of the reasons we have kids, isn’t it? To fill their tiny brains with the “proper” sort of education.

You’ve probably heard of this lot by now, even if you don’t have spawn: they make “lullaby-style” covers of rock songs, turning even the most noisy Metallica track and turning it into a pretty blend of tinkles and chimes.
Here’s one of my favourite purchases: their version of the appropriately-named Lullaby by The Cure.
