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

I bet these kids are just payed by entitled parents who think everything is bad.

Just put all their songs on the list. Because there all terrible

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

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

Kidz Bop is an efficient way to torture people you know.

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

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

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

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

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.

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

Its practically the same

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

How is that bad. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

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

Kidz Bop, should Kidz Stop making songs.


6 "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


7 "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...

8 "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?

I have no idea what they’re singing about in the Kidz Bop version

This one is beyond sarcastic commentary.

This one is stupid.

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

Either way you die at the end

They are both actions that can harm you.

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

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

That was unnecessary

The Newcomers

? "Drunk and alone" to "sad and alone" New rules by Dua Lipa

The Contenders

11 "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.

12 "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 are you packing to go to a party?

Why bother with this one.

Jack? What's this? Alcohol? - DynastiSugarPop

1 Comment
13 "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

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 "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.

17 "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?

18 "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

19 Changed "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 They change references to owls, ballpits, hair flipping, and other perfectly OK things for kids

I don’t understand it! It’s dumb.

26 They changed the word “tattoos” to “balloons.”
27 "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


It’s about exes, things kids shouldn’t be knowing about until they’re older.

28 "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?

29 “Boys like a little more booty to hold at night” to “don’t let it keep it at home in your room all night” from Megan trainer’s all about the bass

Kidz Bop just stop with this.

30 “Don’t wanna know, what kind of dress you’re wearing tonight” to “don’t wanna know, what kind of look you’re wearing tonight” in ‘We Don’t Talk Anymore’ by Charlie Puth
31 They changed the name of “Hey Owl Sista” by Ballpit

Kidz bop doesn’t allow references to owls.

32 “Can’t stop the feeling! When you flip your hair” to “Can’t stop the feeling! When you dance, dance, dance” - Can’t Stop The Feeling

The original was bad enough.

33 They changed “Today I feel like just doing dipping/Just wanna take a dip in ball pit” to “Today I don’t feel like doing anything/I just wanna lay in my bed”
34 "I rent this sh*t like cardio" to " I rent this song like cardio" I Like It by Cardi B
35 In Young blood by 5 Seconds of Summer, they changed "remember the words you told me love me'til the day I die" to "remember the words you told me love you'til the day I fly"

So you wont love them anymore after you go on an airplane?

So,love you till the day I go in a plane or air balloon? - JoPro

36 “I drank too much and that’s an issue but I’m OK” to “I talked too much and that’s an issue but I’m OK“ - Closer by the Chainsmokers
