So Alan Flores created an adult heavy metal band for kids, Thunderlords, which just released its debut album, Noisy Songs For Noisy Kids.
The bands look has a Viking theme but the kid-friendly songs are based on more universal topics with titles like I Like Dirt, and Ice Cream Headache.
Flores the father of two young kids says his kids love Metallica and AC/DC but admits there are some tunes hed rather they not hear.
So he modeled his band on The Wiggles a group he says writes music that kids and adults can appreciate but made it loud and squealy.
Now, Flores is planning a stage show that he figures will make the preschool set bang their heads and their metal-mad parents happy.
He does admit theres a potential downside to making metal for young uns: They might rebel when theyre older and start listening to really mellow music.
