Worst Kidz Bop Songs

I was browsing the interwebz when I came across Kidz Bop. I am awaiting nightmares for the next year or two.

The Top Ten

1 Thrift Shop

It was made, and it was frighteningly terrible. "Rock some tags" and "This is really awesome" basically sum it up.

P.S. they lie... It's not "really awesome"

We are just lucky they hadn't covered other great songs from other great musicians of this generation like Eminem or from Music Legends such as Led Zeppelin or Queen (If they did, then I'm happy to say music just died)

This isn't just the worst Kidz Bop cover of all time, it's up there with Friday and Baby as one of the worst songs of all time. I feel sorry for anyone who has had to listen to this mess.

Why would parents waste their money on this excuse of an "age appropriate" music group. KidzBop is technically old if you think about it. All of the little kids and toddlers are listening to bands they see in their favorite shows today, not this kind of ripoff music. - SavageLG

2 Feel Good Inc.

The original which is made actually by Gorillaz is one of my favorite songs. But this, this just makes me cry in a corner.

What an insult to Gorillaz!

The gorillaz are actually one of my favorite bands, but this cover was an abomination.

How, how did these kids manage to ruin Gorillaz for me. - Catacorn

3 Bring Me to Life

The original by Evanescence is great, but this is probably the worst of them, beating their Toxic and Jenny From the Block covers.

The thing that makes this absolutely inferior to the actual thing is the chorus. The original one has an epic metal part that's fast and amazing, and fits. This, however, replaces the guy who did the epic "WAKE ME UP" man with a terrible one who sounds me he cannot sing AT ALL. Yes, he's that bad. Also, they are off-key with the autotune.

At least Amy Lee sang better than the pre-teen kids in this song. Another good song ruined by young kids who think they can "sing".

One of the best songs of all time destroyed by Kidz Bop. The problems that the kids can't relate the story Amy Lee is telling. She said in an interview about a tough relationship and she provides flawless and incredibly emotional vocals. The emotion is 100% there. These kids CANNOT RELATE TO THE SONG so they SUCK at trying to mimic it. - DCfnaf

The original was awesome. We don't need a bunch of little kids singing a metal song and completely ruining it. Besides the kid yelling made my ears bleed.

No! Why! I swear to God, if they do one Nazareth song like this, I am ranting

4 My Immortal

You know, with Kidz Bop covering songs like this, they might as well cover Goner by Twenty One Pilots, What a Catch, Donnie by Fall Out Boy, and Adam's Song by Blink-182 if they're going down the depression path... *sigh* These kids have no clue what they're even singing...

These bunch of posers are ruined one of the most beautiful songs. Evanescence kicks their butts... - 05yusuf09

This is an outrageous disrespect

5 Let It Rock

Let it rock how bout Let It Rot

I actually love the original Let it Rock, but the Kidz Bop version sucks eggs.

One of Lil Wayne's only good songs from 2007+, ruined by Kidz Bop. It was inevitable. - WonkeyDude98

"Raised his hand and waved it to the world"

6 In the End

Linkin Park is a really great band. Kidz Bop is not. I swear if they come out with an album called Kidz Bop sings Nirvana, I am going to scream. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

Scream like they all try to do, that's what Kidz Bop did here. They better not have taken Numb.

This probably pissed off Linkin Park fans. - kcianciulli

THEY COVERED THIS its official Kidz Bop is the worst music group of all time behind BOTDF - christangrant

7 Boulevard of Broken Dreams

They ruined my favorite song ever. This is an insult to Green Day

I hope Kidz Bop listens to this and realize that what they make is awful music - christangrant

This song is too dark for Kidz Bop to do a cover of

I Heard Green Day Sued Them. - kcianciulli

8 Gangnam Style

How could this one not make the list? Their attempt at not only rapping, but also doing it in a language COMPLETELY alien to them completely butchers it.

We found a song worse than Gangnam Style. And that song is Gangnam Style

Note to self: don't record myself trying to sing in an alien language to my own. - WonkeyDude98

AAARRGH! PLEASE GET IT OUT OF MY HEAD! The original made my ears bleed. Just imagine what I think of this. - allamassal

This song gives me seizures - VideoGamefan5

Thiz zong stinks bekuz fiyure can't burn.

10 Who Let the Dogs Out

They ruined the song I liked from when I was little.

They ruined my favorite song of all time. Disgraceful. The producer of kids bop disgusts me

I hope the dogs attack them.

They made it worse than the original - BoyGenius234

The Contenders

11 I Love It

Original lyrics: I crashed my car into a bridge, I watched and let it burn! Edited lyrics: You drove your car across the bridge, watched you let it turn! See the dramatic difference?

They sing "I watched as you drived your car across the bridge and let it turn" and "I"m a kidz bop kid"

The positive aspect of the song is that the bad words are removed. The negative is the lyric change

"I threw my KidzBop CD into a fire off a bridge and said let it burn! " - SavageLG

12 So What

What's wrong with "husband"?

I hate this song and I hate the kidzz bop version even more because who is going to go on iTunes and download the brand new kidz bop 60,000? You could not pay me enough to listen to this crap!

13 Ice Cream and Guacamole

Hey guess what I Max Stewart made that comment

I hate who ever made this and newsflash, ice cream and gwokumoley don't go together.

14 All Star

Kidz Bop Just Sucks - VideoGamefan5

Kidz Bop Ain't The Sharpest Tools in The Shed. - kcianciulli

15 Party Rock Anthem

"The Kids Bop crew is horrible at making so called 'good songs' better", saying from Max Stewart.

Why did they change shake that to dance that? Is there really a difference? Shaking could be part of dancing! - railfan99

Oh no now they ruined a perfectly good song like thrift shop - venomouskillingmachine

I love you so much

16 Blue (Da Ba Dee)

No autotune = bad cover

17 All the Small Things

Why isn't this number 1? This is the worst Kidz Bop cover, the Blink-182 members would die of laughter to how bad this is. I can imagine Tom crying of laughter and making fun of the vocals and commenting on how bad the guitar is(he sings the actual song), Mark would try to imitate the vocals to make fun of it, and Travis would comment on how bad the drumming is and laugh of course. There is a creepy old man who probably was 50 years old who sounds like a molestor and Barney on drugs singing this. And the kids sound like gnomes eating. The original had an awesome, fun, summer vibe, this version however ruined the vibe and now it reminds me of a bad live action kids show with some little kids and a Barney wannabe old man in it. It was so bad that I died of laughter, I cannot stop laughing at this, especially the Pedophile Bop thing! - AnimeDrawer

What the hell was that Colin Hayes singing or something? Like actually, this is possibly the worst song I have ever heard and then they were doing an a capella that just sounded like a motor for a lawn mower. YOU ARE PAYING TO LISTEN TO A LAWN MOWER!

How to hell isn't this #1 it sounds like someone swallowing glass and lemon juice while receiving heart surgery all while trying sing

Listen to it. please. it made me want to shoot my brains out.

18 Wake Me Up When September Ends

They changed "Like my father's come to pass" to "Like the time has come to pass" oh my god

Seriously, they disrespected Billie Joe Armstrong with this song. - somelifeonaplanet

Yeah wake me up when this awful cover doesn't exist - christangrant

. Just no. This is just plain disgusting and disrespectful. This song was about Billie's father dying (and the 9/11 attacks). I heard GD sued KidzBop but I can't find any articles/proof so I don't know. They should though

19 Call Me Maybe

How can they kill what's already dead? They still found a way to do it. amazing.

The song already sucks and Kidz Bop successfully made it worst

This song is good, they ruined it. Stupid little brats.

What's so bad about the original song?

20 All You Need is Love

Kids bop is horrible. Even when they are messing around with the beatles and other people.

MY ears my poor ears why, why, why! Why must they kill songs! - MJfan119

The worst Kidz Bop song of all time. - InsertNameHere

'All you need' is to stop playing the beeetels

21 Gotta Be Somebody

Butchered a Good song form Nickelback - christangrant

I like Nickelback. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

22 Hot 'N' Cold

This was an ok song. They just made it a gazzilion time worst. they shamed Katy Perry.

Original lyrics: "You, PMS, like a b*tch I would know." Reversed lyrics: "You change your mind, like a girl, I dunno."

23 Look What You Made Me Do - Kidz Bop Look What You Made Me Do - Kidz Bop

They sound like creepy twins from horror movies

This isn’t coming out until January 19, but better early than never. This is going to suck! - railfan99

24 Float On

Nope. not even gonna listen to it.

25 Set Fire to the Rain

Someone must've never been to Great Aunt Ruth's house, or Grandma's house... That's what happens there. Kissing on the lips

I love that song but "kissed my lips" gets turned to "held me hand".

One of Adele's best songs from 25, ruined by Kidz Bop. - Swellow

26 Uptown Funk

They changed Liquor to Water. Ok, I'm 14, probably still young enough to join kidz bop (which I'm not). I sing with every word that may be inappropriate with my age. It was also like that since I was younger

27 Kryptonite

Oh my god what were they thinking?

28 I'm in Love Wit the Coco
29 Stereo Hearts

This is SO BAD. I used to listen to Kidz Bop practically every day in middle school and I’d always avoid this song, that’s how bad it is. - railfan99

30 How to Save a Life

How to save a life: Don't listen to Kidz Bop. - railfan99

31 Watch Me Whip and Nae Nae

They messed up the lyrics, but I don't care since the original is crap. Those crazy dance moves are just pathetic.

Worse than the original.

The original sucked hard

Hate both. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

I love Rihanna but when I heard it...it sounds like Sammy Classic Sonic Fan had a hangover - spodermanfan1000

34 Juju on that Beat (TZ Anthem)

This version was completely out of tune.

Newsflash, this stinks on ice covered gwokumole


I love this song but kidzbop sings it better than the original artist.

38 Because of You
39 What Makes You Beautiful

They make One Direction look bad?

That's it, I officially hate Kidz Bop more.

As if One Direction was crappy enough. - ItsPisces

Like the original wasn't bad enough... - railfan99

They really went this far didn't they?...

Both versions are awful - christangrant

42 Scooby Doo, Where are You?

Kidz Bop should just do songs like this instead of ordinary chart songs.

43 I Kissed a Girl

I am a big Kidz bop fan and a Katy Perry fan. However this song is not a good message for kids. Kidz bop usually makes songs more kid friendly however this can't be more kid friendly because the message of the song is innapropriate. I will always be a Katy Perry fan but I know that this not good especially for the young kids who listen to it.

Katy perry kisses a girl and makes a song about, kidz Bop kisses her ass and covers her track. Why?

This person speaks the truth!

44 Whenever, Wherever
45 Jenny from the Block

Despite the fact they kept the good beat, it doesn't make up for the fact they ruined the song itself.

Jennifer Lopez Sang This Because she wanted to sing about her life. But Kidz Bop Had to Ruin it.

The song title has the original artist's name in it. Do Those Kidz Bop Idiots know that?

46 ... Ready for It?
47 Photograph

I thought there was an artist that was kids bop free


48 Shake It Off
49 I'm Real
50 Bad Day

All the kids do in this song is yell "YEAH! " after every line. It makes no sense with the song. It just sucks away all the meaning about the song. Its supposed to be sad and the kids are so happy. Like what.
