Censorship

Kidz Bop is a line of compilation albums produced by Razor & Tie. The albums feature a cover band composed of children, the "Kidz Bop Kids", covering popular songs, often with heavy modifications made to make the lyrics suitable for children.

Despite popular belief that Kidz Bop has always been censor-heavy, earlier installments of the series often left some suggestive/mature content intact, which led to parental complaints and an increase in censorship for later installments. Some edits are also done for time rather then content.
