My brother loves this show, and he watches it a lot when I babysit him. It is definitely NOT a favorite of mine, but I admit it is very funny sometimes. I DO NOT like the messages in some episodes, however. In one episode the band is teaching a group of kids to be "rock stars", and by doing that, they say the kids must learn to be rebellious. There's a boy in the group of kids who likes classical music, but they try to teach him to be a rebel (basically sending out the message that classical music was for losers). I did NOT like that at ALL! I am only 12 and I prefer showtunes and classical music and opera to most of the music today, and that does NOT mean I am a loser. What's worse is that if young kids watching this see that in order to be a famous rock star, you need to rebel against your parents, they'll believe it. I would, though, like to clarify one thing: some of the reviews here that I read mention that the show said "dumb a**" in one episode. I saw that one, and actually, he said something like: "For once, they wrote a song called "Dumb Ash" and it wasn't about me!", seeing as the character's name is Ash and he's very dumb - that's the joke. Young kids probably won't catch that the song was actually supposed to be called "Dumb a**", that he's just being his usual nutty self--though parents may not want their kids hearing that. Other than these things, it's okay for kids 9+.
