* DarkerAndEdgier: Once upon a time, Kidz Bop would not lay their hands on any PG-13 rated song. Nowadays, having a huge pop hit and being passed over by Kidz Bop is seen as the music industry's equivalent of dodging a bullet. Proof of Kidz Bop's increasingly liberal approach to song selection can be seen in its track record of covering ''Hot 100'' number-one singles. For example, out of 18 #1 singles in 2000, only seven ("Smooth", "What A Girl Wants", "Amazed", "Try Again", "Be with You", "Everything You Want", and "Come On Over Baby") appeared on a Kidz Bop album. Flash-forward to 2015, and "Cheerleader" is the ''thirteenth'' consecutive Hot 100 #1 single to have made it onto a Kidz Bop album.[[note]]Let's count: "Timber", "Dark Horse", "Happy" and "All of Me" on ''26'', "Fancy", "Rude", "Shake It Off", and "All About That Bass" on ''27'', "Blank Space" and "Uptown Funk" on ''28'', "See You Again" on ''29'', and "Bad Blood" and "Cheerleader" on ''30''. The streak was finally broken when neither "Can't Feel My Face" nor "The Hills", The Weeknd's #1 hits, appeared on any Kidz Bop album, for the The Weeknd himself is often seen drunk or high, and "The Hills" is highly inappropriate for kids. However, the remaining #1 hits of the year, "What Do You Mean?", "Hello", and "Sorry", the first #1 of 2016, made it onto ''31'' with hardly any issues. "Work" (surprisingly enough), "Love Yourself", and "One Dance" (but not "Pillowtalk" or "Panda") made it onto ''32''. "Can't Stop the Feeling!" and "Cheap Thrills" made it onto ''33''. "Closer" made ''34'', but "Black Beatles" and "Starboy" didn't. "That's What I Like" made ''35'', but "Bad and Boujee", "Humble", and (most surprisingly) "Shape of You" didn't; "Despacito" will probably be on ''36'', while "I'm the One" has a 50/50 chance. [[/note]] This is inverted with "Locked Away", which is inexplicably absent from the series despite being a perfectly clean and massive hit.

Proof of Kidz Bop's increasingly liberal approach to song selection can be seen in its track record of covering ''Hot 100'' number-one singles. For example, out of 18 #1 singles in 2000, only seven ("Smooth", "What A Girl Wants", "Amazed", "Try Again", "Be with You", "Everything You Want", and "Come On Over Baby") appeared on a Kidz Bop album. Flash-forward to 2015, and "Cheerleader" is the ''thirteenth'' consecutive Hot 100 #1 single to have made it onto a Kidz Bop album.[[note]]Let's count: "Timber", "Dark Horse", "Happy" and "All of Me" on ''26'', "Fancy", "Rude", "Shake It Off", and "All About That Bass" on ''27'', "Blank Space" and "Uptown Funk" on ''28'', "See You Again" on ''29'', and "Bad Blood" and "Cheerleader" on ''30''. The streak was finally broken when neither "Can't Feel My Face" nor "The Hills", The Weeknd's #1 hits, appeared on any Kidz Bop album, for the The Weeknd himself is often seen drunk or high, and "The Hills" is highly inappropriate for kids. However, the remaining #1 hits of the year, "What Do You Mean?", "Hello", and "Sorry", the first #1 of 2016, made it onto ''31'' with hardly any issues. "Work" (surprisingly enough), "Love Yourself", and "One Dance" (but not "Pillowtalk" or "Panda") made it onto ''32''. "Can't Stop the Feeling!" and "Cheap Thrills" made it onto ''33''. "Closer" made ''34'', but "Black Beatles" and "Starboy" didn't, and are highly unlikely to make it at this point. "Shape of You" and "That's What I Like" will most likely make ''35'', but "Bad and Boujee" and "Humble" will almost certainly be excluded.[[/note]] This is inverted with "Locked Away", which is inexplicably absent from the series despite being a perfectly clean and massive hit.

* DarkerAndEdgier: Once upon a time, Kidz Bop would not lay their hands on any PG-13 rated song. Nowadays, having a huge pop hit and being passed over by Kidz Bop is seen as the music industry's equivalent of dodging a bullet.

* {{Bowdlerize}}: Kidz Bop does this to songs that originally have profanity or anything relating to substance abuse, alcohol, violence or sex in their lyrics in order to make them more kid-friendly. [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids This makes their song choices interesting, to say the least.]] Even lyrics of more innocent forms of love are edited in more than a few situations.
** The rules are inconsistent. In "Jealous" from ''28'', "protective or possessive" was changed to "possessive or obsessive", but "call me obsessed" was changed to "call me a mess". On ''24'', "Can't Hold Us" changes "fight 'till it's over" to "dance 'till it's over", even though the reference is metaphorical, but on ''25'', "Brave"'s reference to a weapon which was ''not'' metaphorical was kept in, along with "Bad Blood" and "Fight Song"'s titles and some of the references, like "Did you have to hurt me?" and "The wrecking balls inside my brain", both from ''30''. All of the GettingCrapPastTheRadar examples count as well.
