NEW COLLECTION INCLUDES LULLABY VERSIONS OF CHOP SUEY! B.Y.O.B., AERIALS, TOXICITY AND MORE…

_______________________________________________

(Los Angeles)  The Grammy Award winning hard rock band, SYSTEM OF A DOWN, gets the much anticipated Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star Lullaby treatment this week, album being released October 22nd.  The collection highlights some of this cutting-edge band’s most memorable rock songs, such as “Chop Suey!”, “Aerials”, “Toxicity” and the “B.Y.O.B”. SOAD remains one of the most requested bands that Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star fans have asked the label to release.

SOAD emerged onto the scene in the late ‘90’s and quickly gained a large fan base with their unique mix of innovative riffs, hard rock instrumentals and lyrics that blend a style of socio-political commentary and cultural quirkiness.  Over the last 15 years in the business, SOAD has been nominated for four Grammy Awards, winning in 2006 for Best Hard Rock performance for their song “B.Y.O.B”.

Chop Suey!  From Lullaby Versions of System of a Down:

Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star was born for the parent that wants to pass along their biggest passion to their child, music. Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star transforms popular music into instrumental lullabies perfect for babies, yoga or just relaxation.  Now, parents can enjoy the music from Lady GaGa to Metallica in soothing lullaby style.  With over 135 titles to choose from, Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star is the largest line of pop, rock, metal and jamband music lullabies in the world.

These aren’t novelty recordings.  They are cute, they are soft but these are serious recordings.  Roma Music Group, which releases Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star, is run by two music industry veterans who put the fidelity of these recording at the top of the priority list.  Let’s face it, much like the brand name clothes you buy for your infant, this music is really for you.  Whether you are raising a metal baby, rocker or hippie baby, Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star has your music transformed from arena anthems into nursery classics.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star.  This is where the cool kids start.

SCARS ON BROADWAY – “THEY SAY” 2008 7″ PICTURE DISC SINGLE & VIDEO I’D LIKE TO SHOW YA’

SCARS ON BROADWAY. Daron Malakian, (guitar, bass guitar, keyboards, organs and vocalist) and John Dolmayan, (drums), need no formal introduction, due to their legendary careers with System of a Down. The debut and self titled album Scars On Broadway was released back on July 29, 2008. The single from their debut album – They Say was also released as a 7″ picture disc back in 2008. My picture disc version of They Say, is shown below – both sides. (There is a U.K. version that is limited to 2,000 pressings, with a different image as well) (My picture disc version of They Say has no exact number to it’s limited pressing, to the best of my Metal knowledge). This picture disc was released by Velvethammer with the song licensed to Interscope Records.

As for the song itself… great song! I simply get into this song like there is no tomorrow! The lyrics of They Say basically speaks exactly how I feel about the nightly news and all the depressing information and disinformation, that is fed into the minds of people, on a constant, daily basis. Through the lyrics of They Say, Daron Malakian is honestly stating that the world’s news isn’t all peaches and cream. Lyrical reality about society can and does exist in Metal and Hard Rock songs. When expressed in matter of fact language, such as They Say, the points are driven home and are related quite easily for my interpretation. Sure, They Say Rocks hard and gets me psyched out… yet it also makes me stop to think – about the reality of the world we live in. In my Metal opinion, this song is riveting.

Check out, if you so choose, the still music video for They Say below. It is a still video, showing the debut/self titled album cover – Scars On Broadway, with this great song being played with NO lyrics being edited… crank it LOUD!

Here is what my 7″ picture disc looks like, Scars On Broadway – They Say:

Daron Malakian is pictured on the left, John Dolmayan is pictured on the right of this picture disc photo.

*This picture disc version contains They Say on both sides.

I bought this picture disc sometime back in 2008… guess where? Hot Topic. If you guessed Office Depot or Walgreens Pharmacy… you were way off.
