A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that "Everything Is AWESOME!!!" is an upbeat tune from The LEGO Movie written by Devo frontman Mark Mothersbaugh and performed by indie duo Tegan and Sara featuring The Lonely Island. There's nothing iffy to worry about in the song's undeniably catchy lyrics or music video, but be warned: It's likely to get stuck in your head!

What's the story?
Though it starts off as the most popular but mindless track for the LEGO people of Bricksburg, EVERYTHING IS AWESOME!!! transforms into an anthem for teamwork as the Lego people use their creative ideas to fight Lord Business. The entertaining music video -- which includes scenes from The LEGO Movie -- was created with the help of a 6-year-old named Markus Jolly and features singing LEGO versions of Tegan and Sara and The Lonely Island.
Is it any good?
It's hard to resist dancing to this incredibly addicting, electro-pop track and The Lonely Island's dubstep rap breakdown adds to the fun. Kids will be amused by their random rhyming list of awesome things such as "dogs and fleas, allergies, a book of Greek antiquities" and will enjoy Jolly's hand-drawn interpretations of the song's lyrics combined with the stop-motion LEGO sequences. The fact that a 6-year-old helped create this unique music video shows how imaginative kids can be with their LEGOs.
