In what will be perhaps the final blow to his rock cred, Poison frontman Bret Michaels will be appearing on the newest "Kidz Bop" album singing the classic hit "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" alongside his daughters Raine and Jorja Michaels.

The track will be the first song on the newest installment in the "Kidz Bop" series, titled "Kidz Bop Sings Monster Ballads". The music is aimed at young children, and consists of a chorus of kids singing cover versions of popular tunes. "Kidz Bop Sings Monsters Ballads" will feature children singing 80s power ballads and hair metal hits, including Guns N' Roses' "Patience", Scorpions' "Wind Of Change" and Motley Crue's "Home Sweet Home".

A portion of the album's proceeds will benefit Bret's Juvenile Diabates Foundation, and will be used to send several deserving children to camp this summer. "The most awesome jobs I've ever had are being a rock star, Donald Trump's 'Celebrity Apprentice' winner, raising money for kids with diabetes and, most importantly, being a good father, so rerecording 'Every Rose has Its Thorn' with Raine and Jorja for 'Kidz Bop Sings Monster Ballads' was, by far, one of the coolest ways ever to combine my love for music and family: Not only do I get to rock out with my two favorite girls, but a portion of the proceeds will go to the American Diabetes Association and Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. It's a great track for a great cause, Michaels said.

Kidz Bop appeals mainly to kids under 12, which begs the question: do kids that young even know, or care, who Bret Michaels is? As people who probably don't even remember the late 90s, let alone the 80s, will this CD appeal to young children? Past sales of Kidz Bop seem to indicate yes, but time will tell. The album releases in the U.S. on May 17th.

    Hey, if your wife let you go off and screw 60+ 20-30 year old models, while starring in your own television show and making millions of dollars off it in the process, more power to you.

    That was Poison for me. In all seriousness though, any 'rock cred' he may have had is long gone.

    They're putting a Scorpions song on this!!? Jesus!! And I also thought he looked liked a chick, or a barbie....with a goatee! But seriously, someone kill the person who thought this would be a good idea! It's not just this kidz bop cd, it's all of them. They're all ridiculously horrible and want to make me rip my ears off & eat them, while sacrificing a panda bear! Good lord! /rant over

    It's not KIDZ Bop if there is an adult in it. It should be called "Kidz and One Adult Bop" or "Kidz Bopping with an Adult", or even "Kidz Bopping Under Adult Supervision, While Said Adult is Bopping with Them". Also, thank God they do not have a "Kidz Bop: Thrash Metal". Imagine these "kidz" singing NFL by Anthrax... hehehe.

    From looking at the picture I thought that it was one of his daughters, with a goatee drawn on their face...
