MP3 Rockosaurus Rex - The Big Bang!

Rockosaurus Rex plays true hard rock/metal versions of classic children''s songs, complete with wailing guitar solos and pounding drums.

21 MP3 Songs
KIDS/FAMILY: Children''s Pop, ROCK: Hard Rock

Ridiculously heavy-metal interpretations of children''s music standards like "This Old Man" and "Itsy Bitsy Spider" prove that loud, in-your-face rock is not extinct. Rockosaurus Rex holds nothing back here - with this explosion of sound, the album title is well-deserved. There are a lot of tracks (21!), so the constant barrage of metal might get tiring after 15 or so songs. Luckily, there are some well-placed, softer interludes to get you through the album.

HELL YES!!! Tired of hearing toy piano versions of your favorite Toddler Time classics? Prepare your preschoolers to have their faces rocked off by "Wheels On the Bus"; "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes"; and "This Old Man" as performed by our favorite prehistoric metal gods, Rockosaurus Rex!

-- WARREN TRUITT, Head Children’s Librarian at The New York Public Library, from his blog, "Children’s Music that Rocks"
My children are mercifully out of their Wheels On The Bus / Itsy Bitsy Spider years, but the whole household is in danger of reverting thanks to Rockosaurus Rex''s radical reinterpretation. Hear me, brothers and sisters! The timeworn standards that have brought generations of parents to their knees are no longer fodder for lobotomy!

If you looking for a completely different take on Twinkle, Twinkle, This Old Man, Itsy Bitsy Spider and others there is a new CD out called The Big Bang! It''s by Rockosaurus Rex. This rock/heavy metal CD hits the spot, getting the balance absolutely right. If you prefer the traditional way they are sung then this is probably not for you. But I liked this version; it gives it a new edge. Twinkle, Twinkle with drums and electric guitar may freak you out at first, it''s rough, loud and hard rock. My favourites were Six Little Ducks and the Ants Go Marching. Having spent years working in nursery schools the sound of tape recordings of these songs/rhymes is all too familiar. When children sing them they are always great but it is sometimes fun to experiment and try it in a different way. It is sure to have you singing, dancing and jumping around.
dinosaur dancesThis will be loved by everyone but perhaps not granny, although it does depend how cool your granny is.
