''Kidz Bop'' is a CD series of pop song covers performed by kids. Currently on the [[{{Long Runner}} 32nd CD]] of their main series, Kidz Bop has also released several special collection [=CDs=]. Kidz Bop releases albums every six months; it changed to a quarterly release schedule in 2015 but returned to its traditional biannual release a year later.

!!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?!":
** Pete Wentz of Music/FallOutBoy actually caught on this, preventing "Dance, Dance" from being covered on ''Kidz Bop 10'' due to its sexual undertones.
** Music/{{LMFAO}}'s "Party Rock Anthem". A song about drinking, sex, and [[APartyAlsoKnownAsAnOrgy hardcore partying]] isn't really Kidz fare.
** Music/{{Kesha}}'s "Tik Tok", another song about hardcore partying with heavy references to drinking and sex.
** Music/NickiMinaj's "Starships", which is about drinking, sex, and wasting your rent money.
** Music/{{Maroon 5}}'s "Moves Like Jagger", which uses dancing as an euphemism for sex.
** Hinder's "Lips Of An Angel", which is about having an affair.
** Music/{{Evanescence}}'s "Bring Me To Life", a song about crying for help after suffering from depression.
** Trapt's "Headstrong", which is about stubborn determination.
** 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/FloRida's "Club Can't Handle Me", "Wild Ones", "I Cry", "GDFR" and "My House", which are about sex, alcohol, hardcore partying and (in the case of "I Cry") death.
** Music/GreenDay's "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" and "Wake Me Up When September Ends". The former is about feeling disillusioned with life; the latter is about Billie Joe Armstrong's deceased father. [[UnfortunateImplications OopsÖ]]
** 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") are clearly about an assassination.
** Music/{{Pink}}'s "Who Knew", "So What" and "Perfect" (which feature strong language and deal with subjects such as alcoholism and death).
** 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/BrunoMars's "Locked Out Of Heaven" on 23 and Music/JustinTimberlake's "Suit & Tie" on 24, which are explicitly about IntercourseWithYou.
** Music/LanaDelRey's "Summertime Sadness" made "25". [[SarcasmMode Yeah, dirges about suicide are for kids indeed]].
** Music/SamSmith's "I'm Not the Only One" is on "28". Hey kids, here's a song about sadness and infidelity, [[SarcasmMode your two favorite things!]]
** Also on 28 is Music/ArianaGrande's "Love Me Harder", which is about [[IntercourseWithYou exactly what one would think it's about]].
** Music/MyChemicalRomance's "Sing" was a Target exclusive song. Kids love being the voice to show all the injustice in the world, right?
** From ''29'', Music/EllieGoulding's "Love Me Like You Do". Because a song that cannot reasonably be interpreted nonsexually is obviously for kids. You would think that its association with ''Film/FiftyShadesOfGrey'' would prevent its inclusion, but it didn't, (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''.
** {{Music/Rihanna}}, Kanye West, and Paul [=McCartney=]'s "[=FourFiveSeconds=]": A song about relationship indignation that deals with subjects such as drinking and imprisonment.
** 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.
** 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" 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 even ''that'' is fairly objectionable, mainly making it on because it's a Music/TaylorSwift song. 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"). This is probably why they didn't cover the otherwise relatively clean "[[Music/BrunoMars When I Was Your Man]]" on ''24'', altough it could have been due to avoid the overload of soft ballads.
** Neon Trees' "Animal" 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!
** Music/{{Ellie Goulding}}'s "On My Mind" from ''31'': A song about a one-night stand that involves drinking away your pain.
** Elle King's "Ex's And Oh's" from ''31'', a song about a woman's exes coming back to her for sex.
** DNCE's "Cake By The Ocean" is on 32 despite its strong sexual content. Just because Joe Jonas sings it doesn't mean it's for kids.
** "No" by {{Music/Meghan Trainor}} is also featured. Because a song about strangers hitting on you is obviously kid-friendly.
** Rihanna's "Work" might be the most inappropriate of them all, it's pretty sexual and the sex interpretations are even in the title.
** "How To Love" by {{Music/Lil Wayne}} is a Target-exclusive track on 21. Unless you count "Let It Rock", it's the first and probably last time they'll touch a Lil Wayne song.
* 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 profanity or 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.)
** 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": "Bottle of Jack" gets changed to "And then I go and pack"; "Going out to the parties" gets changed to "Going to birthday parties"; "Tiiiiiippssssy" gets changed to "siiiiilllly"; "I'mma fight till' we see the sunlight" gets changed to "I'm alright till' we see thr sunlight". 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". Lil Wayne's verses are removed.
** Weezer's "Beverly Hills": "Crap" gets changed to "Junk", but strangely not on their later cover of Train's "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.
** 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, 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: "We'd make out in your Mustang to {{Music/Radiohead}}" gets changed to "We'd listen everyday to Radiohead"; "On my 18th birthday, we got matching tattoos" gets changed to "When it was my birthday, you brought me some balloons"; "Used to steal your parents liquor and climb to the roof" gets changed to "Used to eat your favorite ice cream and hang by the pool"; "Someone said you had your tattoo removed" gets changed to "Someone said you had your heartbreak removed".
** "Dark Horse" from 26: "Make me your Aphrodite" gets changed to "Make me your one and only". Juicy J's verse is removed.
** Pitbull and Kesha's "Timber": The first verse wasn't used 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, the 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"; "It seems to me that when I die, these words will be written on my stone" gets changed to "It seems to me that when I go, these words will be written on my own".
** 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 quite some words in this song: Every instance of "hella" is changed to "super". "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"; "I'm so pumped to buy some shit from the thrift shop" gets changed to "I'm so pumped to buy some clothes from the thrift shop"; "So damn frosty" gets changed to "So so frosty"; "Damn! That's a cold ass honky!" gets changed to "Hey! That guy on the Marquee!"; "Probably shoulda' washed this, smells like R. Kelly's sheets" gets changed to "Probably shoulda' washed this, smells like my baseball cleats"; "Piiisssssss" get changed to "Ewwwwww"; "But shit, it was 99 cents!" gets changed to "But hey, it was 99 cents"; "Dookie leather brown jacket" gets changed to "Chocolate leather brown jacket"; "I bought a skeet blanket" gets changed to "I bought an old blanket"; "Hell no" gets changed to "Oh no"; "That motherfucker" gets changed to "Like it's awesome"; "Hella won't" gets changed to "Really won't"; "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".
** Music/JustinBieber's "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.
** 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"
** 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"
** Music/TaylorSwift's "22" from 24: "To fall in love with strangers" gets changed to "To dance along to Kidz Bop".
** Music/FloridaGeorgiaLine's "Cruise (remix)" from 25: "Yeah, when I first saw that bikini top on her" gets changed to "Yeah, when I first saw that pretty smile on her"; "She's poppin' right out of the South Georgia water" gets changed to "She's dancin' right out of the South Georgia water"; "Thought oh good Lord, she had them long tanned legs" gets changed to "Thought oh good Lord, she had them cool dance moves"; "This brand new Chevy with a lift kick would look a hell of a lot better with you up in it" gets changed to "This brand new Chevy with a lift kick would look a heck of a lot better with us up in it"; "Let's get this thing stuck" gets changed to "Let's get this song stuck".
** 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".

** 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!"

** LMFAO's "Party Rock Anthem": "SHAKE THAT!" gets changed to "DANCE THAT!". Every other part is omitted except for the Lauren Bennett guest verse.
** 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".

** John Legend's "All of Me" from 26: "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".

** "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/TheScript's "Breakeven" from 18: "Just prayin' to a God that I donít believe in" gets changed to "Just prayiní to a thing that I donít believe in".
** B.o.B. and BrunoMars' "Nothin' on You" from 18: "And you wild when you ainít got nothiní on / haha" gets changed to "And you out when you ainít got anyone".
** "Airplanes" from 19: The word "smashin" gets changed to "cashin"; "Rapping for the hell of it" gets changed to "Rapping for the thrill of it"; "Started this shit" gets changed to "Started this hit".
** {{Music/Buckcherry}}'s "Sorry" from 14: "I love how you kiss, I love all your sounds" gets changed to "I love how you sing, I love how it sounds". Their cover bizzarely averts the NeverSayDie trope (see below).
** P!nk's: "So What" from 15: "And you're a tool" gets changed to "And you're a fool".
** Music/KellyClarkson's "Never Again" from 12: "I hope when youíre in bed with her, you think of me" gets changed to "I hope when youíre out with her, you think of me."
** "Stronger" from 22: "You know the bed feels warmer sleeping here alone" gets changed to "You know the light feels better sitting here alone".
** Music/CarlyRaeJepsen's "Call Me Maybe" from 22: "I beg and borrow and steal" gets changed by "I beg and borrow and feel".
** Hot Chelle Rae's "Tonight, Tonight" from 20: "I woke up with a strange tattoo" gets changed to "I woke up with a strange hairdo".
** Music/{{Fun}}'s "Some Nights": "Oh, Lord, I'm still not sure what I stand for" gets changed to "Oh no, I'm still not sure what I stand for", and "Who the fuck wants to die alone all dried up in the desert sun?" gets changed to "Who the heck wants to be alone all dried up in the desert sun?"
** Taylor Swift's "I Knew You Were Trouble" from 24: "You got me alone" gets changed to "You saw me alone". The word "drowning" is replaced with "falling".
** 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". The "Let's get drunk at the minibar" verse is omitted, as well as the first and last verses.
** 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 "Starships" from "22": "Have a drink, clink, have a Bud Light" gets changed to "Have a ''thing'', clink, have a good night"; "Bad bitches like me is hard to come by" gets changed to "Great people like me are hard to come by"; "I'mma blow all my money and I don't give two shits" gets changed to "I'mma blow all my money and I don't give of it"; "Fuck who you want, and fuck who you like" gets changed to "Dance with who you want, and dance with who you like"; "Higher than a motherfucker" gets changed to "We're Kidz Bop and we're taking over."
** "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]].
** Meghan Trainor's "All About That Bass" on 27: "I got that boom boom that all the boys chase" gets changed to "I got them dance moves that all the boys chase"; "All the right junk in all the right places" gets changed to "All the right moves in all the right places"; "We know that shit ain't real" gets changed to "We know that it ain't real"; "Boys like a little my booty to hold at night" gets changed to "Don't let it keep you at home in your room at night"; "Silicone Barbie doll" gets changed to "Fake plastic Barbie doll"; "I'm bringin' booty back" gets changed to "I'm bringin' it all back"; "Skinny bitches" gets changed to "Skinny ladies".

** "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 is removed.

* 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. A most recent example is their cover of DNCE's "Cake By The Ocean", which in the original version uses cake as a metaphor for sex, whereas the Kidz Bop version is about eating literal cake.
* 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," and "Sorry", the first #1 of 2016, made it onto ''31'' with hardly any issues, "Work", "Love Yourself", and "One Dance" (but not "Pillowtalk" or "Panda") made it onto 32. Will "Can't Stop The Feeling!", "Cheap Thrills" and "Closer" make 33? Stay tuned[[/note]]. This is inverted with "Locked Away", which is inexplicably absent from the series despite being a perfectly clean and massive hit. So far in 2016, the only Top 10 omissions are "Roses", "Hands To Myself", "Summer Sixteen", "Me, Myself & I", "Piece By Piece", "I Took A Pill In Ibiza", "Dangerous Woman", "Work From Home", "Panda", "Formation" and two Prince songs. Aside from "Piece By Piece" (which fell off very quickly) and the Prince songs (which were already more than 30 years old when they returned to the Top 10), these are all explicit to varying degrees.
* 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]]."
** Their cover of Elle King's "Ex's And Oh's" doesn't change the line "Like ghosts they want me to make them O" which is an interpretation for an orgasm.
** They literally get "crap" past the radar in their cover of Train's "50 Ways To Say Goodbye" by leaving the "crappy purple Scion" line intact.
** In their cover of Flo Rida's "Wild Ones", every alcoholic beverage reference is removed, but a bizzare aversion is the word "vodka" in the line "Gotta move over like too much vodka".[[note]]The original lyric is "Got a hangover like too much vodka", and given that the term "hangover" wouldn't be appropriate in a Kidz Bop cover, it makes sense for the word to be changed, and being asked to "move over" after excessive vodka consumption also makes sense in context, but the mystery that remains is why the reference to vodka is left intact (whereas every other drinking reference is modified)[[/note]].
** In their cover of Music/BrunoMars's "Uptown Funk!", the term "white gold", which is a street term for cocaine, remains intact.
* LongRunner: They've released 32 [=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.
* 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". There are ocassionally bizarre aversions, such as Music/{{Buckcherry}}'s "Sorry", [[Music/CeeLoGreen Gnarls]] [[Music/BrianBurton Barkely]]'s "Crazy", and Music/ZaraLarsson & MNEK's "Never Forget You".
* XtremeKoolLetterz: The usage of Z instead of S in the title.
