To "get retarded" is another term for getting drunk and having careless fun (basically what the expression "get turned up" became), [[OrphanedReference hence the line]] "Let's get ig'nant, let's get hectic." It's safe to assume [[ValuesDissonance why the band isn't too bothered by this version being forgotten]].

In 2002, they were joined by a fourth member, Fergie. By the time ''Elephunk'' and ''[[NewSoundAlbum Monkey Business]]'' were released in 2003 and 2005, the group had changed entirely, moving towards a pop sound with Fergie placed front and center, and much simpler lyrical content. Their new style earned them numerous #1 hit singles and multi-platinum sales, to the point where some people didn't know they did anything pre-''Elephunk''.
