Worst Kidz Bop Lyric Changes

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

What has humanity come to? My parents let me listen to explicit songs when I was 6,and now we have kids bop? Their lyrics don't even fit! - JoPro

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

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

Doesn't make sense

2 "Like my father's come to pass." to "Like the time has come to pass." - Wake Me Up When September Ends by Green Day

Green Day is amazing and this is from Wake Me Up When September Ends. It is such a shame Kidz Bop did this to a great song lmao

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

3 "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.

They literally just took the song and stripped it of all meaning.

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

4 "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

For my animated YouTube series Android the Phone, I'm gonna cover this and make it family-friendly albeit not lazy like Kidz Bop's. - QueenieAG

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

How is that changed? Is it inappropriate?

Its practically the same

5 "Bury me til' I confess!" to "Talk to me til' I confess!" - Uma Thurman by Fall Out Boy

Kidz Bop, should Kidz Stop making songs.


6 "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

What if it was a milkshake? Or SPARKLING WATER?

This one is stupid.

This one is beyond sarcastic commentary.

Is it an alcohol or a drink of water? - DynastiSugarPop

7 "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?

I totally agree. Kids bop need to know the lyrics their changing. - JoPro


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

God forbid a child hears the word steal

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

That's worse than steAl

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

9 "You're drowning" to "You're falling" - I Knew You Were Trouble by Taylor Swift

Either way you die at the end

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.

10 "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

The Contenders

11 "We just wanna see ya... shake that!" to "We just wanna see ya... dance that!" - Party Rock Anthem by LMFAO

That was unnecessary

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

Why are singing about death threats?

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.

13 "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

Where are you going? - BlazingParasol

Why bother with this one.

Jack? What's this? Alcohol? - DynastiSugarPop

Why are you packing to go to a party?

14 "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

15 "Hey! Sexy lady!" To "Hey! Hey lady!" - Gangnam Style by Psy

I agree

I understand why saying "sexy" may be problematic, but "hey" isn't the same amount of syllables, so it just comes across as really awkward. Why didn't they just go with "pretty lady"? That would've fit perfectly! - SquipCrow

16 "My love for you went viral" to "My love for you went wild." - Drive By by Train

What's the difference? If anything,kids bops one is a bit more...suggestive - JoPro

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

"Wild" suggests it has become more passionate (and therefore probably sexual), "viral" just says it has become bigger. - Martin_Canine

Oh my god, that's grissly! - Doglover2007

17 "This woman's my destiny" to "This girl, she is my destiny" - Shut Up and Dance by Walk the Moon

Kids are girls/boys. Adults are women/men.

18 "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?

19 "Don't pull up at 6am to cuddle with me" to "Don't pull up at 6am to talk here with me" - God's Plan by Drake

A horrible cover of an already horrible song.
- TheDuttyGyal

20 "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.

21 "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

Kidz Bop changes every shop/ball pit/sisterhood reference in songs but keeps “flip your hair” in What Makes You Beautiful?

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

22 "I was choking in the crowd" to "I was lost there in a crowd" - Believer by Imagine Dragons
23 “This is going to be the best dip of my life” to “This is going to be the best day of my life” - Best Dip of My Life by Oinkfloinkan Dippers

Kids dip in ballpits, why change that?

This song used to be about ballpits, but the kidz changed it to a song about partying. What is it with Kidz Bop and ball pits?

24 "I didn't know that I was starving till I tasted you" to "I didn't know that I was starving till I looked at you" - Starving by Hailee Steinfeld
25 "Drunk and alone" to "Sad and alone" - New Rules by Dua Lipa

I misheard is as “dead and alone”
