My best idea ever

Okay, you know those irritating, awful Kidz Bop CDs? And how they're full of chirping little cherubs singing songs that are grossly inappropriate for little kid voices to be singing? Seriously, here's an example of stuff just from their latest CD:
  • "What Goes Around"--Justin Timberlake (You cheated on me, so suck it. Awesome for little ones!)
  • "Never Again"--Kelly Clarkson (See above comment.)
  • "Makes Me Wonder"--Maroon 5 (We have fabulous sex, but I think our relationship might be bad. Sorry, Elmo.) (PS--"It really makes me wonder if I ever gave a thought about you." Well played Kidz Bop. Well Played.)
  • "How to Save a Life"--The Fray (Great, because that song's not overplayed enough.)

Okay, so if they're going to make these ridiculous CDs, don't you think the least they could do is put out an incredibly inappropriate CD? I do. Here are some of my suggestions:

  • "Closer"--Nine Inch Nails
  • "Crazy Bitch"--Buck Cherry
  • "Me and a Gun"--Tori Amos
  • "We Didn't Start the Fire" or "End of the World as We Know It"--Billy Joel or REM. (Would it not be awesome hearing those kids trying to chuck those lyrics out?)
  • "Manifest Destiny"--Guster
  • Anything by Jefferson Airplane

I had more, but of course I can't remember them now. Any suggestions from the peanut gallery?

"Creep" by Radiohead. I would love to hear 8 year olds singing that.
