Spun: High School Musical

Publication YearIssue Date 

Parental advisory warnings adorn albums that contain lyrics not suitable for children. There should also be an inverse system to designate albums for children that are so obnoxious that anyone over the age of 12 would search frantically for a chopstick to pierce their own eardrums. This label would be firmly affixed to the cover of High School Musical.

Poignant lyrics such as "Pop like a mop/Scoot around the corner," in Bop to the Top leave the listener pondering important questions like "how does one 'pop like a mop'? How can 'scooting around the corner' improve my life? and Good god Jesus Christ what the fuck?!"

To top it off, both of the female singers sound like the Chipmunks on amphetamines--if they were trapped in Tron. It's horrifically grating, and it could quite possibly cause seizures and anal leakage.

It's the album only a masochist could love. If not the additional advisory label, it at least needs one that reads "destroy immediately."

i don't know what your problem is i am sixteen i have seen high school musical and i think it's pretty cool it has a possitive message and its not like other programs with teens where everyone is having sex and drinking it shows people my age in a good light to younger kids.
and i think ashley and vanessa have very good voices

There is nothing wrong with High School Musical. Its a great movie for the whole family and the message is very possitive and I am a HUGE fan. I love the movie!!!

...Correct me if I'm wrong, but last time I checked, "has good family values" isn't a synonym for "has artistic quality".

Also note, it's reviewing the soundtrack, not the movie itself. A movie can suck miserably and have an awesome soundtrack (See: "The One" with Jet Li), and vice-versa.

Please note, however, that I am in no way, shape, or form advocating watching "High School Musical". The name alone turns me off to it...

If I remember correctly, the One's soundtrack featured Drowning Pool. I think that alone pretty much condemns a compilation to the burn bin.

Say what you will, Killing in the Name of... is a great track. Although I think that was their only hit.

"Bodies" was a HUGE hit...until radio & TV stations refused to play it following September 11th. That basically sunk Drowning Pool.

I thought their lead singer dying pretty much sunk Drowning Pool.

high school musical rocks! zac efron(troy bolton) and vanessa anne hudgens(gabriella montez) r a gr8 team and couple. i think high school musical has a gr8 message the messages r: be what u want to be no matter what anyone else says. 2. follow ur heart and dreams. the stars made us belive what was happening in the movie important. this movie has a gr8 influence on insparation.
