** Better yet, the ''fucking creepy'' [[https://remixographs.files.wordpress.com/2010/10/bep_theend.jpg cover for ''The E.N.D.'']] hits this UpToEleven. Makes it even more creepy when it appeared in "Boom Boom Pow".

* ValuesDissonance: "Let's Get Retarded" was just about acceptable enough in the early 00s that although it had no chance of getting on radio, it didn't get too much backlash after they changed the title. If a band had released a song with that title these days, their career would die overnight.

Added DiffLines:

* BetterThanCanon: In addition to the better instrumentation, "Let's Get It Started" is significantly more popular than "Let's Get Retarded" for removing the lyrics that [[ValuesDissonance use mental illness as a metaphor for getting drunk and partying]] (the title and "Bop your head like epilepsy" to "...like me, Apl.de").

* NeverLiveItDown: The SuperBowl halftime show performance, widely considered the worst yet. May be a factor in why they went on hiatus...



* TheScrappy: Fergie. Not just in Black Eyed Peas, but arguably hip hop as a whole.

* HypeBacklash: They experienced this '''hard''' as their 2011 Super Bowl performance was panned by critics and viewers alike; in the matter of two weeks their massive popularity was almost completely destroyed.
** The relentless hype/advertising for their halftime show during that year's NFL playoffs probably contributed a lot to how it got so badly savaged.

* DorkAge: Two critically panned albums and one unsuccessful album later, they'll probably be stuck in one for a while. Even better, they went on hiatus.

* AlasPoorScrappy: In retrospect, the super bowl performance was such a disaster it's not difficult kind of feeling bad for them.
** Hell, [=2011=] was ''not'' a good year for the Peas. Aside from the aforementioned Super Bowl performance, "The Beginning" became their lowest selling and most critically panned album in their career, ''The Black Eyed Peas Experience'' was not well received at all, hatred of them was from all sides (even from some of their own fans) and to top it off, they announced they were going on hiatus, which is still ongoing. Damn.

** Really, most of their singles from ''The E.N.D.'' onward could qualify (see SnarkBait).
