A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this music.

Positive Messages

Upbeat, self-esteem-boosting lyrics, like, "…come as you are/ you're a superstar/ the world's in your pocket and you know it" and "We're finding our voice/followin' our dreams."

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff

This is a song from the Disney movie Camp Rock which like other Disney movies, promises to have a huge marketing push behind it.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this spirited song about the power of music to help you be who you are is from the Disney movie Camp Rock. In the spirit of High School Musical, the song, music video, and movie are all big, bold, and theatrical -- and very tween friendly. The music video, a montage of the movie's scenes, promotes the movie, with lots of flashy clips and dance numbers.

What's the story?

Fresh off the soundtrack to the new Disney musical Camp Rock (airing June 2008), "WE ROCK" is a tour de force ensemble song featuring the fabulously popular Jonas Brothers and the movie's star, Demi Lovato. The Cinderella-meets-Fame movie, set of course at a rock camp, is a fun, sentimental movie that incorporates all the successful conventions of High School Musical. "We Rock" does the same musically.

Is it any good?

The song doesn't break any new ground lyrically: It's all about having a dream and going for it -- an idea that Disney has almost managed to trademark. But what the song does create is a fun, feel-good moment that's not so easy to forget. And the Jonas Brothers and Lovato play their roles appealingly in both the vocals and the music video. With this much enthusiasm, it's hard not to feel even a little inspired to get out and rock on.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the message behind the track. How does a song about finding your voice and going after your dreams hold universal appeal for kids? Also, why are stars like the Jonas Brothers so popular with tweens? Is it their music, their looks, or their entire marketing package?
