Worst Kidz Bop Lyric Changes

Cartoonfan202
Kidz bop sucks, it just sucks. One reason is because they mess up the lyrics to make it kid friendly but fail.

The Top Ten

1 "Higher than a motherf***er" to "We're Kidz Bop and we're taking over!" - Starships by Nicki Minaj

I mean Kidz Bop was fine in the first few albums but now it's just ugh! How many of them do they have now 87? Because I still have the first album of Kidz Bop ever (that I never use) weirdly enough. - Anonymousxcxc

Taking out that lyric did nothing to change the meaning of the song. - Cartoonfan202

Isn't it suppose to be changing inappropriate lyrics? - DynastiSugarPop

No, the only thing you’re taking over is the contest for least talented music artist!

2 "The boys, break their necks, (and done) try'na creep a little sneak peek, at us!" to "Boys break their necks, tryn’ to act a little crazy" - California Gurls by Katy Perry

This one is just stupid. And they also took out the Snoop Dogg rap - Cartoonfan202

I hate Kids Bop, you losers!

How is that changed? Is it inappropriate?

Its practically the same - AnnieCallie

3 "But it broke his heart, so he stuck his middle finger to the world, to the world, to the world." to "But it broke his heart, so he raised his hand and waved it to the world, to the world, to the world." - Let it Rock by Kevin Rudolf

This one is ridiculous. Why would you wave to the world that broke your heart? - Cartoonfan202

Uh... - AnnieCallie

4 "I beg and borrow and steal" to "I beg and borrow and feel" - Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen

Did this one need to be changed? At all? They censor that but allow lyrics about giving your number to strange guys. - Cartoonfan202

Feel what? This sounds kind of creepier then steal. - NikoX

That's worse than steAl - AnnieCallie

Um, I don’t think stealing is as bad as...

5 "A different lover is not a sin" to "A different viewpoint is not a sin" - Born This Way by Lady Gaga

Not just censoring those things, but cutting the entire verse about those races and different viewpoints, IN THIS SONG WHERE IT IS THE ENTIRE PURPOSE OF THE SONG! Plus they now have "sin" censored.

Says the company that's censors queens, blacks, whites, etc. - Cartoonfan202

No - AnnieCallie

6 "And you're a tool" to "And you're a fool" - So What by Pink.

No one replaces "fool" with "tool". Sort of like with Call Me Maybe, they censor the word fool but allow lyrics about starting fights and death threats. - Cartoonfan202

7 "I hope when you’re in bed with her, you think of me" to "I hope when you’re out with her, you think of me" - Never Again by Kelly Clarkson

"So no one saw anything wrong with a little girl singing a song from the perspective of a scorned lover? Glad they changed this lyric. I mean, I'm fine with an 8 year old being bitter and vindictive as long as there's no bed action." -Smosh - Cartoonfan202

8 "Like my father's come to pass." to "Like the time has come to pass." - Boulevard of Broken Dreams by Green Day

There NEEDS to be a no Green Day rule. This is just a disgrace to the music industry. - railfan99

CORRECTION: This is from Wake me up When September Ends, not Boulevard of Broken Dreams. - railfan99

9 Uma Thurman - Fall Out Boy says: Bury me til' I confess! Kidz Bop says: Talk to me til' I confess!

Why?!

10 "Before I leave, brush my teeth with a bottle of Jack. 'Cause when I leave for the night, I ain't coming back" to "Before I leave, brush my teeth and then I go and pack. 'Cause when I leave for the night, I ain't coming back" - Tik Tok by Ke$ha

Why bother with this one. - Cartoonfan202

Why are you packing to go to a party?

Jack? What's this? Alcohol? - DynastiSugarPop

The Contenders

11 "Hand you another drink. Drink it if you can." to "Hand you another dance. Dance it if you can." - Glad You Came by The Wanted

This one is stupid. - Cartoonfan202

What if it was a milkshake? Or SPARKLING WATER? - AnnieCallie

This one is beyond sarcastic commentary.

This one doesn't even make sense!

12 "And if you don't like it, f**k you" to "And if you don't like it, boo hoo" - Not Myself Tonight by Christina Aguilera

This one is just cringey. - Cartoonfan202

13 "You're drowning" to "You're falling" in I Knew You Were Trouble by Taylor Swift

Seriously, Kidz Bop? What's wrong with the original lyric? This is one of THE most unnecessary lyric changes in the history of music.

They are both actions that can harm you.

14 "Oh but that one night was more than just right." to "Oh but that one day was more than okay." -Drive By by Train

A lyric change wasn't needed for this line. This one is just stupid! - EastZombie

15 "We just wanna see ya... shake that!" to "We just wanna see ya... dance that!" - Party Rock Anthem by LMFAO
16 "Out in the club. And I'm sipping that bubb." to "Out in the club And I'm eatin' that grub." - Telephone by Lady Gaga and Beyonce

Everybody knows what you do at the club. Why even bother with this change?

17 "Hey! Sexy lady!" To "Hey! Hey lady!" -Gangnam Style by Psy
18 "My love for you went viral" to "My love for you went wild." - Drive By by Train

"My love for you went wild" actually sounds way more sexual than the original lyric... - Martin_Canine

19 "Like you said you were so happy you could die" to "Like you said you were so happy you could cry" - Somebody That I Used To Know by Gotye and Kimbra
20 "If I took you home, we would be wearing hats" to "If I took you home, we would play on the mat" - Take You Home by Hoodie Ow

Because HATS. There is so much shop in that song. Why do that song, Kidz Bop?

21 "I was choking in the crowd" to "I was lost there in a crowd" - Believer by Imagine Dragons
22 "You're a real-life fantasy, you're a real-life fantasy" to "It's a life that's meant to be, it's a life that's meant to be" - Cake By The Ocean by DNCE

What’s so bad about the original?
