As a general — and generally very reliable — rule, songs about environmental issues are cringeworthy. Plenty of bands and artists may walk the green talk, but they generally don’t sing it.

How refreshing, then, to hear the group They Might Be Giants geek out about clean tech vehicles in its catchy pop song for kids (and — who are we kidding? — the rest of us) by the name of “Electric Car.”

Not diesel, steam, or gasoline
Let’s take a ride in an electric car
Happiness resides in an electric car
You can even drive an electric car
Won’t you take a ride with me?
