AllMusic Review by

Drew's Famous Kids Rock collects re-recorded versions of kid-friendly rock, rap, and pop hits like "Get the Party Started," "So Yesterday," "Men in Black," and "Get Ready for This." While most of these new renditions of these songs can't hold a candle to the originals (and the versions of "Soak Up the Sun," "Walk Like an Egyptian," and "See You Later, Alligator" are especially limp), the covers of "I Can't Wait [Lizzie McGuire Version]," "Kung Fu Fighting," and "MMM Bop" are passable (although none of them will be mistaken for the real deals anytime soon). The original songs on the album, "Kids Rock" and "Can't Beat It," aren't great, but they're not much worse than a lot of the music on your average Disney teen pop collection. This isn't an outright dreadful collection, but a similarly themed compilation with original tracks would probably better suit the needs of most listeners.
