Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the Naked Brothers are real-life brothers who also have a TV show on Nickelodeon. The title of this track says it all: These kids would rather have fun with their friends than sit in a classroom. The message might not be the best idea to plant in kids' heads, but it's a fun song that unfortunately rings true.
What's the story?
Just as Alice Cooper's \"School's Out\" became an anthem for fun-searching kids everywhere back in the '70s, today's \"I Don't' Want to go to School\" speaks to kids who'd rather be hanging with friends than sitting at a desk at school. It's cute and catchy and fine for tweens.
Is it any good?
The Naked Brothers Band is comprised of a bunch of kids, but they display more talent -- both vocally and instrumentally -- than most tween rockers. With a twinge of old-school rock (think a more family-friendly ACDC) and an inviting and tween-appropriate approach, they combine youthful lyrics ("And I tell you teachers I've got a confession/All the kids want to do is have some fun/ but the work, the work, is never done") with a sound that's surprisingly mature beyond their young years. You and your kids will be singing along in no time.
Families can talk about...
Families can talk about how The Naked Brothers has become a brand name. How does having a TV movie, TV series, and a CD help boost their popularity? Do they all feed off each other?
