VOLBEAT Gets Lullabied! Baby-Friendly Collection Hits the Streets...

VOLBEAT is one of those bands that has an interesting level of crossover appeal among rock and metal fans. You always run across people you wouldn't expect to dig 'em, yet they're all over 'em. Then again, I've run across several people that I figured would love some VOLBEAT, and they absolutely can't stand 'em. Me? I'm in the middle and find them to be overrated and overplayed around these parts (particularly their latest album), but I really like 2010's BEYOND HELL/ABOVE HEAVEN. If you dig 'em and want to introduce your baby to their music, the folks at Roma Music Group have a new collection out this week to help you do just that. Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star: LULLABY VERSIONS OF VOLBEAT hit iTunes today. Check out "Lola Montez" below, along with the full tracklisting and cover art.
