One of the most influential hard rock bands of all time, Black Sabbath is almost singularly responsible for the inception of heavy metal and dozens of its extreme sub genres.

Rockers of all persuasions have emulated, copied and/or paid tribute to Sabbath over the past five decades. But the latest tribute to our heavy metal forefathers is intended not for the mosh pit but for the cradle.

The Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star project has compiled a full-length album of Black Sabbath's greatest songs, reimagined in instrumental lullaby form. The music is perfect for anyone in search of something familiar but subdued, gentle but not irritating.

Listen to the arrangement of "Paranoid" via the player above.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star has amassed more than 135 pop, rock and metal songs rearranged with respect and care in the same fashion.
