What's this? Orange County's favorite adopted ska-punk band Sublime (yup, Long Beach is our favorite adopted LA 'burb) finally got Rockabyed? About time, we say. While Rockabye Baby has been infantilizing your favorite bands' music since 2006 with all the xylophones and bells your baby could need, but never with one this close to our hearts.
Now that Sublime's self-titled breakthrough album is almost 20 years old, everyone who smoked joints to "Santeria" and "Wrong Way" is probably way past the baby-making age. Luckily, our resident baby, Ziggy Bose, is around to judge whether or not the album lives up to its promise.
Ziggy tested it on a road trip from Garden Grove to Long Beach during rush hour and gave us her input, song by song. for the whole hour. She's all of eight weeks old, so not only was Ziggy reviewing the album for its sweet melodies and soothing vibes, but also for its intended effect. Did these Rockaby Baby CDs really put babies to sleep? She was about to find out.

Xylophones, bells, accessory sounds ... I like this! Passing gas to this song. Maybe a few mustard-colored poops, too.
