The Roots on Yo Gabba Gabba

I can’t get this song out of my head, it’s so damn catchy. Children’s shows weren’t this cool when I was a kid. My daughter is 10 months old and actually starts dancing when this song comes on. It’s pretty amazing.

It may be a kids show but it has some major appeal. Apparently Jack Black’s wife actually wrote into the show begging them to let him make an appearance, which he eventually did.

The YO GABBA GABBA! album was ranked by the Los Angeles Examiner as one of the top 10 albums of the year, among albums from artists including GNR, The Roots, RTX, J.D. Souther, The Clash, Marah, The Knux, Q-Tip and My Morning Jacket.

“5. Yo Gabba Gabba – Soundtrack – They say it’s for kids, but this is a show that aging punks, soon to be hockey Moms and Little Mr. and Ms all love in equal measure. How good? So good. It’s not a question of how much fun this Nick Jr. release is, it is really a question of how much fun you can take.”
