They're a critically acclaimed trio of teenaged Brooklyn girls who sing punk rock anthems to baby animals.  And in their new video, Care Bears on Fire have a few choice words for America's favorite fashion icon, Barbie.

As the girls chase her down through the pages of a fashion magazine,  they hector the ubersvelte doll queen who's "got no brains, but she's got style" to "eat a sandwich, give it a try!"  It's a carbs and cheese-friendly message to women -- and women to be -- everywhere that's strong, funny, and most of all, it rocks.
