Nirvana gets lullaby tribute

On album designed for kids

The current NME cover stars are the focus of ’Rockabye Baby! Lullaby Renditions of Nirvana’.

In a statement on the album is described as : “Lullaby renditions of Nirvana’s best-loved songs turn the volume way down, while turning up the dreaminess of their pop hooks.


“In many ways, this album echoes the simple pleasures and innocence of infancy and childhood. Childish tra-la-la’s tempered the distortion of Nirvana’s own songs. Chimes, glockenspiels and other gentle instruments temper Nirvana’s wild spirit for your little one. ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’? Smells like nap time.”

‘In Bloom’

‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’


‘Something In The Way’


‘About A Girl’

‘On A Plain’

‘Heart Shaped Box’

‘All Apologies’
