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?

QUALITY

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.

Families can talk 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?

Nice song from Camp Rock

It's a pretty good song. I'm not a big fan of the movie, but the song's catchy (and Demi is great at singing). It has uplifting messages about accepting yourself. 3.5 stars

this girl over acts, over smiles and is arrogant. she doesn't want to sing for disney - she wants to be famous. Disney needs to look somewhere else
