The Ramones Get Reinvented For Kids

Published: 2006-12-15
Not one, but two separate albums can appeal to a new and much younger generation of Ramones fans.

According to Go-Kart Records, on Brats On The Beat: Ramones For Kids the Gabba Gabba Hey Singers have "kidified" 12 classics. All the songs feature kids singing background as well as various punk vocalists on lead. A portion of the proceeds will go to St. Jude Children's Hospital.

And if parents are looking to soothe their babies and the traditional lullabies just aren't cutting it, there is another Ramones option out there. Rockabye Baby! Lullaby Renditions of The Ramones is a more soothing option of Ramones hits. Put out by Baby Rock Records, the label notes, "The Ramones sang about brats, babysitters, and believing in miracles. Is there any doubt the band didn't want to grow up?"

Here is the tracklist for Brats On The Beat:

1. Blitzkrieg Bop - Jim Lindberg (Pennywise)
2. Rock 'N' Roll High School - Matt Skiba (Alkaline Trio)
