''Kidz Bop'' is a CD series of pop song covers performed by kids. Currently on the [[{{Long Runner}} 31st CD]] of their main series, Kidz Bop has also released several special collection [=CDs=].

!!Tropez Bop:

* AgeInappropriateArt: A list of songs that have been featured within that make you go "What the ''hell'' were they thinking, putting that in there?!":
** Music/GoodCharlotte's "The Anthem"
** Trapt's "Headstrong"
** Music/{{LMFAO}}'s "Party Rock Anthem". A song about drinking, sex, and [[APartyAlsoKnownAsAnOrgy hardcore partying]] isn't really "Kidz" fare.
** Hoobastank's "The Reason"
** Music/SimplePlan's "Welcome to My Life," a song about the most angst-ridden teen alive.
** Music/BritneySpears' "Toxic." At best, it's a song about substance abuse. At worst, it's a song that uses substance abuse as a metaphor for sex. Not a single lyric was changed.
** Music/{{Usher}}'s "Burn"
** Music/FloRida's "Club Can't Handle Me", "Wild Ones", "I Cry" and "GDFR"
** Music/GreenDay's "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" and "Wake Me Up When September Ends," the latter of which is about Billie Joe Armstrong's deceased father. [[UnfortunateImplications Oops...]]
** Music/{{Evanescence}}'s "Bring Me to Life" and "My Immortal"
** Music/FranzFerdinand's "Take Me Out" is generally thought of as being about a sniper about to shoot his target. While "Take Me Out" could mean "take me out on a date" in theory, the rest of the lyrics ("I'm just a crosshair / I'm just a shot then we can die" is clearly about an assassination.
** Music/{{Pink}}'s "Who Knew", "So What" and "Perfect" (which has a positive message, but the explicit version and the music videoÖ). Heck, most P!nk songs are just not appropriate for kids. The worst offenders: "Funhouse", "Fingers", "Stupid Girl" (though it does have a very good Aesop that today's girls need to use their brains instead of their bodies to get ahead in life and that fame whores like Paris Hilton aren't good role models for young girls to emulate) and [[ADateWithRosiePalms "U and UR Hand"]].
** Music/EdSheeran's "Sing" made "26". It may be due to Ed Sheeran's status as a TeenIdol towards girls, [[SarcasmMode but doesn't it scream "kid-friendly" like a song about consuming copious amounts of alcohol and tobacco?]]
** Bastille's "Pompeii": Hey kids, here's a song about a historical disaster that killed more than 10,000 people!
** Music/IggyAzalea's "Fancy". The alcoholism in the song makes "Sing" look tame in comparison.
** Music/JustinTimberlake's "Suit & Tie" is on "24", but that's not nearly as shocking as the fact that the very first song on the album is "Thrift Shop". Yes, ''[[Music/{{Macklemore}} that]]'' "Thrift Shop." No, we're not kidding. [[http://www.musicspace.com/product.aspx?productcode=MS9338 Take a look for yourself.]] Also, we've got Icona Pop's "I Love It." [[SarcasmMode Because there is nothing as kid-friendly as a song about crashing a car into a bridge and letting it burn.]]
** Music/LanaDelRey's "Summertime Sadness" made "25". [[SarcasmMode Yeah, dirges about suicide are for kids indeed]].
** Music/FloridaGeorgiaLine's "Cruise (remix)": "Yeah, when I first saw that bikini top on 'er/ she poppin' right out of the South Georgia water/ And oh, good Lord she had them long tanned legsÖ" [[SarcasmMode Yep. Definitely appropriate for Kidz Bop.]] Strangely, they change the lyrics that aren't dirty. They change "Let's get this thing stuck" to "Let's get this song stuck".[[note]]The lyric does not mean running out of gas and having sex like Kidz Bop may have thought, but literally getting the truck stuck in some mud.[[/note]]
** Music/SamSmith's "I'm Not the Only One" is on "28". Hey kids, here's a song about sadness and infidelity, your two favorite things!
** Also in 28 is Music/ArianaGrande's "Love Me Harder", which has lyrics like "can you feel the pressure between your hips", which means [[IntercourseWithYou exactly what one would think it means]].
** Music/MyChemicalRomance's "Sing" was a Target exclusive song. Kids love being the voice to show all the injustice in the world, right?
** Music/{{Gorillaz}}'s "Feel Good Inc.", which includes lyrics such as "Melancholy town where we never smile" that they DO NOT CHANGE.
** From ''29'', Music/EllieGoulding's "Love Me Like You Do". Because a song that cannot reasonably be interpreted nonsexually is obviously for kids (at least "[[Music/TheWeeknd Earned It]]" got spared).
** Jason Derulo's "Want to Want Me": Yet another in a long list of obvious IntercourseWithYou songs covered by ''Kidz Bop''.
** Rihanna, Kanye West, and Paul [=McCartney=]'s "[=FourFiveSeconds=]": The second line is "I might get a little drunk," and the song gets even more questionable from there.
** Andy Grammer's "Honey, I'm Good.": Because a song about trying not to cheat on your significant other when you're drunk is just what kids needed.
** Wiz Khalifa's "See You Again." Yup, Kidz Bop singing about death. Just what we needed.
** David Guetta's "Hey Mama" and Fifth Harmony's "Worth It" are on ''30'', adding to Kidz Bop's long list of sexually-charged covers (and The Weeknd ''really'' dodged a bullet this time around, with "Can't Feel My Face" potentially becoming the first #1 to not be covered since "The Monster").
** ''30'' also brought down the famous "Gives You Hell" rule (where an objectionable word in a title can hurt an otherwise-clean song's chances), with the inclusion of "Bad ''Blood''" and "''Fight'' Song" (the former is rather objectionable in its own right, but the latter ranks with "Photograph" and "Watch Me" as among the cleanest songs on the album). There's also a Kidz Bop rule were they usually change the word "man" to either "guy" or "boy" (as well as "woman" and "lady" to "girl"), which is why they didn't cover the otherwise relatively clean "When I Was Your Man" because of its obstacle being the title.
** Neon Trees' "Animal." It doesn't TECHNICALLY have bad language in it, but it's still [[LyricalDissonance a peppy song]] about drugs, unrequited love, [[MindScrew and (metaphorical?) cannibalism.]] Plus, the song builds to the screamed-out line ''[[IntercourseWithYou "And I won't be denied by you, the animal inside of you"]]'' and has the constant refrain of "No, I won't sleep tonight," which can easily be interpreted sexually.
** Music/{{Drake}}'s "Hotline Bling" is on ''31''. Because a song about a booty call is obviously for kids!
* AgeInappropriateDress: Maybe not to the extremes of some mainstream little-girl groups like Play, but to some extent the outfits the preteen girls wear in the dance-along videos border on too revealing.
* {{Bowdlerize}}: Kidz Bop does this to songs that originally have anything relating to substance abuse, alcohol, violence or sex in their lyrics in order to make them more kid friendly. [[{{What Do You Mean Its Not For Kids}} This makes their song choices interesting, to say the least.]] Even lyrics of more innocent forms of love are edited. Many of the songs listed above also mention what was changed.
** Music/{{Adele}}'s "Set Fire To The Rain" changes "Kissed my lips" to "Held my hand."
** Music/BowlingForSoup's "1985" leaves in the Prozac but changes "Shake that ass" to "Shake it fast." (Ironically, this version is less censored than the version Bowling For Soup created specifically for Radio Disney.)
** There is a common joke on how Kidz Bop's rendition of "Hot in Herre" by Nelly would go:
-->''It's getting hot in here''
-->''So put on some cool clothes''
-->''I am getting so hot''
-->''I'm gonna put a fan on''
** As well as how the rendition of "Mama" by My Chemical Romance might go:
-->''Mama, we all go to school''
-->''Mama, we all go to school''
-->''I'm writing this essay 'cause learning is cool''
-->''Mama, we all go to school''
** Their cover of Music/LadyGaga's[[note]]Another pop star whose songs aren't considered child-friendly[[/note]] "Born This Way" is a particularly notable example where they manage to completely strip away the entire meaning of the song by editing out references to the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community, along with references to "being different", which kills the song's themes of standing out in a society that preaches being different, but really wants everyone to be alike.
** The ''only'' change made to Music/{{Psy}}'s "Gangnam Style" (aside from the removal of the first line in each verse) can be heard in the commercial itself. "HEEEEEEEEEY, HEY LADY!" At least they have an actual Korean kid singing the lyrics.
** A bizarre aversion in their version of [[Music/CeeLoGreen Gnarls]] [[Music/BrianBurton Barkley's]] "Crazy". "I can die when I'm done" is left in, but very minor changes, such as "I wanna be like that" becoming "I wanna be just like that" and "it looked like fun" becoming "it seemed like fun", are made.
** Music/{{Kesha}}'s "Tik Tok" changes the bottle of Jack line to "And then I go pack". Also, "Tiiiiiippssssy" gets changed to "siiiiilllly". Not to mention the entire second verse (which has words like "swagger", "junk" and "po-po") is removed.
** Kevin Rudolf's "Let It Rock" changes "Stuck his middle finger to the world" to "Raised his hand & waved it to the world".
** Weezer's "Beverly Hills": "Crap" gets changed to "Junk", but strangely not on their later cover of "50 Ways to Say Goodbye".
** The Pussycat Dolls' "When I Grow Up": "Boys call you sexy" gets changed to "Boys call you crazy" because the word sexy wasn't appropriate for the Kidz Bop Kids.
** Fergie's "Glamorous" from 12: "If you ain't got no money take your broke ass home" gets changed to "If you ain't got no money, take your broke self home"
** Music/ChristinaAguilera's "Not Myself Tonight": "If you don't like it, fuck you!" get changed to "If you don't like it, boo hoo".
** [=will.i.am=] and Britney Spears' "Scream and Shout": "Britney, bitch" gets changed to "Kidz Bop Kids".
** Music/{{Usher}}'s "U Remind Me" from 2: "She was sexing everyone but me" becomes "She was sassing everyone & me".
** Music/KatyPerry's "Hot N Cold" from 15: "Yeah you PMS / Like a bitch, I would know" gets changed to "Yeah you change your mind / Like a girl, I would know". "California Gurls" from 18: "Sippin' gin and juice" gets changed to "Sippin' on a juice", and "Tryína creep a little sneak peek" gets changed to "Tryiní to act a little crazy". Also in this chorus line, "Daisy Dukes, bikinis on top" wasn't appropriate for the Kidz Bop Kids. So they used "Fine, fresh, fierce We got it on lock" two times in the chorus. "Firework" from 19: "Six feet under" gets changed to "Yeah, put under" because they knew "Six feet under" was too inappropriate. "The One That Got Away" from 21: "On my 18th birthday, we got matching tattoos" gets changed to "When it was my birthday, you brought me some balloons". "Dark Horse" from 26: "Make me your Aphrodite" gets changed to "Make me your one and only"
** Pitbull and Kesha's "Timber": The first verse wasn't used just because they knew the words "booty" and "sexy" were not appropriate, and MileyCyrus was mentioned in this song. Also "Order me another round" gets changed to "Dance with me, weíre going round".
** Music/OneDirection's "Live While We're Young" from 23: "Come on and let me sneak you out" gets changed to "Come on and let me take you out". Also this chorus line "Let's go crazy, crazy, crazy 'till we see the sun" gets changed to "Let's go crazy, crazy, crazy dancing in the sun", and "Tonight, let's get some" gets changed to "Tonight let's have fun". "Story of My Life" from 26: "She told me in the morning/She donít feel the same about us in her bones" gets changed to "She told me in the hallway/She donít feel the same about us in her bones".
** Icona Pop's "I Love It": "I threw your shit into a bag" gets changed to "I threw your stuff into a bag", "Youíre from the 70s, but Iím a 90s bitch!" gets changed to "Youíre from the 70s, but Iím a Kidz Bop kid!", "I crashed my car into the bridge" gets changed to "I drove your car across the bridge." The first two edits also appear in the radio edit, while the third is edited to "a 90s chick".
** Macklemore's "Thrift Shop" has changed some words in this song: "I'm gonna pop some tags" gets changed to "I'm gonna rock some tags" because they knew pop was too inappropriate. "This is fucking awesome" gets changed to "This is really awesome", "Walk up to the club like ĎWhat up I got a big cock?í" gets changed to "Walk up to the club like ĎWhat up I got a hit song?í", "Piiisssssss" get changed to "Ewwwwww" and "I'm in this big ass coat" gets changed to "I'm in this real big coat".
** "Can't Hold Us" from 24: "We'll fight 'til it's over" gets changed to "We'll dance 'til it's over" and "But thatís what you get when Wu-Tang raised you" gets changed to "But thatís what you get when Kidz Bop raised you".
** Music/JustinBieber's "As Long As You Love Me" from 23: "Yo, JB!" gets changed to "Yo, KB!" "Beauty and the Beat" from 24: "Baby, do it like you do" gets changed to "Baby, dance it like you do", and "Body rock, girl I feel your body rock" gets changed to "Really rock, girl I can see you really rock"
** Creator/AnnaKendrick's "Cups (Pitch Perfectís When Iím Gone)": "Two bottles of whiskey for the way" gets changed to "I got my memories for the way".
** Capital Cities' "Safe and Sound": "Even if we're six feet underground" gets changed to "Even if we're sofa underground". Once again, they knew "six feet under" was too inappropriate for this.
** Music/SelenaGomez's "Come and Get It" from 24: "This love will be the death of me / But I know Iíll die happily" gets changed to "This love will be the best of me / But I know Iíll live happily"
** Music/MileyCyrus' "We Can't Stop" from 26: And everyone in line for the bathroom / Tryiní to get a line in the bathroom" gets changed to "And everyone in line for the bathroom / Man I really gotta use the bathroom".
** The Lumineers' "Ho Hey": "All the blood that I would bleed" gets changed to "All the love that I would need".
** Alicia Keys' "Girl on Fire" from 24: "Hotter than a fantasy, lonely like a highway" gets changed to "Hotter than a summer day, lonely like a highway"
** Pitbull and ChristinaAguilera's "Feel This Moment": "Meet and greet, nice to meet ya" gets changed to "Kidz Bop Kids, nice to meet ya".
** Music/TaylorSwift's "22" from 24: "To fall in love with strangers" gets changed to "To dance along to Kidz Bop".
** Music/JessieJ's "Domino" from 22: "I'm feeling sexy and free" gets changed to "I'm feeling happy and free", "Dirty dancing in the moonlight, take me down like I'm a domino" gets changed to "Now weíre dancing in the moonlight, knock me down like I'm a domino".
** Music/FloRida's "Wild Ones" from 22: "If I took you home, itíd be a home run" gets changed to "If I took you out, it would be such fun", and "Round up baby tilt the freaky show" gets changed to "Round up baby to the Kidz Bop show".
** Music/LadyGaga's "Paparazzi" from 17: "Snap, snap, to that shit on the radio" gets changed to "Stop, stop, that song on the radio". "Telephone" from 18: "And I cannot text you with my drink in my hand, eh?" gets changed to "And I cannot text you when Iím going to dance, ay", and "Out in the club and I'm sippin that bubb / And you're not gonna reach my telephone" gets changed to "Out in the club and I'm eating that grub / And you're not gonna reach my telephone". "Alejandro" from 18: "Donít want to kiss / Donít want too much / Just smoke my cigarette and hush" gets changed to "Donít want to miss / Donít want too much / Just walk away from me and hush", and "But her boyfriend's like a friend, just like a friend". "Born This Way" from 20: "A different lover is not a sin" gets changed to "A different viewpoint is not a sin".
** Cascada's "Evacuate The Dancefloor": "'Cause it feels like a overdose" gets changed to "'Cause it feels like itís really close", and "This beat is killing me" gets changed to "This beat is moving me".
** Music/BrunoMars' "Just the Way You Are" from 19: "I can kiss her all day if she lets me" gets changed to "I can watch her all day if she lets me". "The Lazy Song" from 20: "Meet a really nice girl/Have some really nice sex/And she's going to scream out, 'This is great, oh my God, this is great." gets changed to "Meet a really nice girl, send a really nice text. And she's gonna write back, You're so great OMG you're so great!" Uptown Funk on 28: "I'm too hot, hot damn" gets changed to "Im too hot, hot yeah", "Fill my cup, pour some liquor in it" changed to "fill my cup, pour some water in it." and "Uptown funk you up" is changed to "Uptown funk it up" and "If you freaky then own it." is changed to "If you can dance than own it."
** LMFAO's "Party Rock Anthem": "SHAKE THAT!" gets changed to "DANCE THAT!"
** Train's "Hey, Soul Sister" from 18: "Like a Virgin, youíre Madonna" gets changed to "Like a popstar, youíre Madonna". "Drive By" from 22: "Oh but that one night, Was more than just right" gets changed to "Oh but that one day, Was more than OK".
** Bastille's "Pompeii": "The rubble or our sins?" gets changed to "The rubble or our wins?"
** JustinTimberlake's "Not a Bad Thing" from 26: "When someone cuts your heart open with a knife/Now youíre bleeding" gets changed to "When someone breaks your heart open with a lot[?]/Now youíre hurting".
** John Legend's "All of Me": "Love your curves and all your edges" gets changed to "Love your words and all your edges", thus stripping away a reference to loving women no matter what their shapes or sizes are.
** Paramore's "Ain't it Fun" from 26: "You can ring anybodyís bell to get what you want" gets changed to "You can ring anybodyís cell to get what you want". What, was [[TechnologyMarchesOn "bell" not modern enough]]?[[invoked]]
** Lorde's "Team" from 26: "So all the cups got broke" gets changed to "So the dishes got broke". Also "blood stains" gets changed to "grass stains". And "Grey Goose" gets changed to "Gold Goose".
** Music/OneRepublic's "All the Right Moves" from 18: "Over the world is death" gets changed to "Over the world that's lead". "Counting Stars" from 26: "I feel something so right by doing the wrong thing" gets changed to "I feel something so right by doing the right thing".
** Music/EdSheeran's "Sing" from 26: "And then she handed me a bottle of water with tequila" gets changed to "And then she handed me a bottle of water, said Ďnice to meet yaí".
** Beyonce's "Single Ladies" from 18: "Iím up on him, he up on me / Donít pay him any attention Ö Donít be mad once you see that he want it" gets changed to "Iím into him, heís into me / Donít pay him any attention Ö Donít be mad once you see that heís into it".

** Music/CalvinHarris and Music/EllieGoulding's "I Need Your Love" from 25: "I feel so high" gets changed to "I feel so good".
** Music/IggyAzalea's "Fancy" from 27: "And my flow retarded" gets changed to "And my flow just started", "I-G-G-Y" get changed to "K-I-D-Z" as well as the omission of the "Lets get drunk at the minibar" verse and the first verse.
** Pete Wentz of Music/FallOutBoy actually called them on this, preventing "Dance, Dance" from being used for ''Kidz Bop 10'' due to its sexual undertones.
** Hinder's "Lips of an Angel" and Buckcherry's "Sorry" have really strong lyrics. Music/PanicAtTheDisco is lucky that "I Write Sins Not Tragedies" wasn't on ''Kidz Bop 11''.
** Music/BrunoMars should be counting his blessings that Kidz Bop 20 passed over "Grenade". His first hit, "Just The Way You Are," was kid-friendly enough for 19 and was a near-lock for the album the whole time. "The Lazy Song" did make it in, but instead of using the media-friendly version that skips over the entire line about him having sex with some girl he just met, they change it to him sending her text messages and her writing back. "Locked Out of Heaven" made it into 23, though "Sex" was changed to "Love". "When I Was Your Man" seemed all but certain to make it onto 24, but surprisingly, it got snubbed. Thankfully 26 skipped "Young Girls".
-->Meet a really nice girl send her some really nice texts\\
And she's gonna write back "you're so great" (OMG you're so great) Yea-aah
** Music/NickiMinaj's "Fly" was on "21", and "Starships" was on "22". The latter song starts off immediately with "Have a ''thing'', clink. Have a good night." "Higher than a motherfucker" gets changed to "We're Kidz Bop and we're taking over." (They could have used the Glee version, "Higher than any other," but they knew the word "higher" was too inappropriate for it.)
** "Moves Like Jagger" by Maroon 5 might actually be worse [[http://www.cracked.com/blog/5-inappropriate-childrens-versions-famous-hit-songs/ after being Bowdlerized]].
** "All About That Bass" by Meghan Trainor appeared on 27, and all references of "booty" were scrubbed out. Here's an example: whereas in the original, Trainor claimed to bring "booty back," the Kidz are "bringin' ''it all'' back".
** Ariana Grande & Iggy Azalea's "Problem" from 27: "I gotta have it" gets changed to "I gotta have you"; "Every time you touch me" gets changed to "Every time you see me"; "I shouldn't want it" gets changed to "I shouldn't like you"; "Iggy Iggy" gets changed to "KB KB".
** "Beautiful Girls" by Sean Kingston had "suicidal" replaced with "in denial", and "damn" replaced with "hey", but those Bowdlerizations were not specifically added only in the Kidz Bop version - both those replaced lyrics appear on the "Nickelodeon Mix" of the actual song itself from the ''Series/{{iCarly}}'' soundtrack.

In addition, the "Boys only want love if it's torture..." bridge and third chorus are removed.
** Ariana Grande's "Love Me Harder" from 28: "I'll take the pleasure, take it with the pain" get changed to "I'll take the good times, take it with the bad"; "I bite my lip" gets changed to "I think of it"; "Beyond bliss" gets changed to "Beyond this"; "When I get you moaning" gets changed to "When I make you realize"; "Can you feel the pressure between your hips?" gets changed to "Can you hear the songs singing in me heart?"

** One Direction's "Night Changes" from 28: "Her mother doesn't like that kind of dress" gets changed to "Her mother doesn't like the color dress"; "She's showing off" gets changed to "She's searching for"; "Driving too fast" gets changed to "Living too fast"; "He's waiting, hides behind a cigarette" gets changed to "He's waiting, hides behind another but"; "And it doesn't want it to stop"; "Moving too fast" gets changed to "Living too fast"; "Reminds her of the missing piece of innocence she lost" gets changed to "Reminds her of the missing piece of yesterday she lost".
** Mary Lambert's "Secrets" from 28: "I've got bi-polar disorder" gets changed to "I've got my life and disorder"; "My shit's not in order" gets changed to "The rooms not in order"; "I'm overweight" gets changed to "I'm in the way"; "But we have a good time killing each other" get changed to "But we have a good time getting each other"; "I'm so gay" gets changed to "Or in this way"; "I love my butt" gets changed to "I love my life". The third chorus was removed.
** Nico & Vinz's "In Your Arms" from 28: "When I lie down in your arms" gets changed to "When I'm right there in your arms".

* CelebrityStar: Sean Kingston appeared on 14 to sing "Take You There" with the Kidz Bop Kids.
* ChildPopstar: The best known example in 21st century America.
* TheCoverChangesTheMeaning: Many of the bowdlerized versions of the songs have their meaning changed pretty drastically. Especially any songs that are centered around drug use or drinking.
* 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?" and "Hello," made it onto ''31'' with hardly any issues.[[/note]]. This is inverted with "Locked Away", which was inexplicably absent from the series despite being a perfectly clean and massive hit.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar:
** The Kidz Bop edit of Justin Timberlake's "Suit and Tie" is still very suggestive - the chorus includes the promise of "leaving it all on the floor tonight" among other references.
** Their cover of Barenaked Ladies' "One Week" leaves intact the line "Gotta get in tune with ''Manga/SailorMoon'', cause that cartoon has got the boom anime babes [[SomethingElseAlsoRises that make me think the wrong thing]]."
* LongRunner: They've released 31 [=CDs=] since first starting in 2001.
* LyricalDissonance: As the entry for AgeInappropriateArt points out, there are plenty of songs with dark themes that were already LyricalDissonance... and this version winds up even cheerier sounding.
%% * NamesTheSame: Kidz Bop have now covered two songs titled "Sorry": one was a top-10 hit for Music/{{Buckcherry}}, and the other was Music/JustinBieber's #2 hit.
* NeverSayDie: Among other examples, Music/{{Gotye}}'s "Somebody that I Used to Know" had the line "So happy you could die" changed to "So happy you could cry." Also, Music/SelenaGomez's "Come and Get It" had the line "I'll die happily" changed to "I'll live happily". Bizarrely averted with Music/{{Buckcherry}}'s "Sorry" and [[Music/CeeLoGreen Gnarls]] [[Music/BrianBurton Barkely]]'s "Crazy".
