YMMV / Kidz Bop

  • Accidental Innuendo: Their take on Cascada's "Evacuate the Dancefloor" changes "Can't stop 'cause it feels like an overdose" to "Can't stop 'cause it feels like it's getting close". If anything, the latter is dirtier.
  • Critic-Proof: The internet reviles the albums although most of them have peaked in the top ten of the Billboard 200 (and nine of the first ten are certified Gold by the RIAA).
  • Ear Worm: Many of the original songs that are covered. It's probably why Kidz Bop exists in the first place.
  • Narm: Many of the altered lyrics. The ones linked to all came from Kidz Bop 18 alone.
  • Older Than They Think: Sadly, this isn't the first time music aimed at kids has covered child-unfriendly material. The Alvin and the Chipmunks country album had "Coward of the County" - a song with a rape scene.
  • Periphery Hatedom: People over the age of 10 are known to criticize them to no end. Despite their generally positive album ratings and reviews, those are mostly from parents who buy the albums for their kids.
    • The hatedom could especially be due to the fact that the ads for the albums play all the time during Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon commercial breaks.
  • Poor Man's Substitute:
    • Kidz Bop has numerous imitators, one of which included a cover of Fall Out Boy's "Thnks fr th Mmrs", which seems ironic due to Pete Wentz's reaction to "Dance, Dance" being considered a candidate for Kidz Bop 10, and the fact that "Thnks fr th Mmrs" is even more inappropriate (it's about having sex with someone just to fulfill your needs).
    • There's also a Canadian Kidz Bop imitation group out there called Mini Pop Kidsnote . Songs that weren't appropriate enough for Kidz Bop were surprisingly included in their franchise, for example: Pitbull's "Give Me Everything", Daft Punk's "Get Lucky", P!nk's "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)", and Jessie J's "Bang Bang" to name a few.
  • Snark Bait: Especially among people ages 10 and up.
  • Tastes Like Diabetes: Often in stark contrast to the originals.
  • Unfortunate Implications: Some of the attempts to clean up the songs unwittingly makes them sound darker. This article goes into some of the specifics, along with the issues of the whole "kids singing songs that are clearly about sex".
