A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What 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.
