Album Notes
A cross between "South Park" and "School House Rock", the award winning animated comedy web series "Meet The LadyBugs" follows The LadyBugs on their journey toward rock and roll stardom performing educational children's music about grown up topics. With songs like "Daddy, Please Don't Drink and Drive", "Ritalin is a Gateway Drug," and "Sugar is Poison" this debut album by The LadyBugs is like nothing you've ever heard before.

In the words of veteran music journalist from Mossy Stone Magazine, Derv McMelbis, "I have just heard the future of childrens' music and they call themselves The LadyBugs!"

A must-have for all the wrong reasons
The LadyBugs are an animated group dedicated to singing and writing children's music. Their goal is to help adults talk to children about difficult subjects like child abduction, pedophilia, sex, and healthy eating. Unfortunately, these songs come across as so absolutely ridiculous that it is impossible to believe the group is actually serious about what they are singing.

To clarify my meaning, some of their song lyrics are: "Suicide is worse than cancer."; "Stay away from the creepy man. He has no friends. He's supposed to stay 500 yards away from children." Of course, younger children won't notice how ludicrous these lyrics are, but I suppose my main concern in using this album for its original purpose--the education of children--is whether the views expressed in the songs are really what parents want their children to learn. The group resorts to scare tactics in 'Safety First' in which they attempt to "educate" kids about sex by repeatedly referencing AIDS and other STDs. The group also denounces Ritalin as a gateway drug in an effort to encourage kids to "be on your best behavior for all your teachers because grownups can be very mysterious creatures. They think you're adorable when they can persuade you, but if you rub them the wrong way then they'll try to sedate you." The group claims to be trying to make their music fun, but no self-respecting parent should want their children listening to songs that warn them their parents will drug them for misbehavior. Even if parents could get past the music being horrifying, 'Don't Commit Suicide' uses profanity.

Despite the band's best inentions, I cannot in good conscience recommend this album for children. However, I would recommend to anyone who wants to laugh themselves silly. The LadyBugs don't really work as a group singing children's music, but they kill as a comedy act. Once you get past the guilt at laughing over songs about such serious subject matter from a group that is trying so very hard, this album really is hysterical.


Catchy songs, great messages for kids. Just the right dose of humor and attitude. Can't praise this album enough. Can't wait for the next one!

They Rock
The ladybugs rock... All their songs are professionally crafted, The lyrics are mature and very thought provoking... I eagerly await their full length movie release on DVD ;-)


Better than listening to grim nursery rhymes
This album is instructive and positive compared to most children's nursery rhymes if you listen closely to the lyrics of Alouette, London Bridge, Peter Pumpkin eater, 3 Blind Mice, Georgie Porgie, Jack and Jill, Rock-a-bye-baby, Old Woman who lived in a shoe, or Ring-around-a-rosie and many others.
