Some mature themes -- but lots of positivity, too.

A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this music.

Positive Messages

Though Pink's rebellious side makes for a few questionable messages about "punching" people, the majority of the messages are positive -- emphasizing that it's OK to be yourself and live honestly.

Positive Role Models & Representations

Overall, Pink is solid role model for teens -- dressing and acting in a way that feels comfortable to her while working hard to establish a successful career and family life.


Some mention of fighting: "I'm gonna get in trouble, I wanna start a fight."


Nothing extremely graphic, but a few sexual references, such as: "I'm not here for your entertainment ... It's just u + ur hand tonight."


The occasional f- and s-word, as well as some crass terms like "d--khead."


A little bit of name-dropping, like Mercedes Benz and Fred Segal.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

A fair amount of allusions to substance use. For example, "I'm lyin' here on the floor where you left me / Think I took too much ... I swear, you're just like a pill / Instead of making me better, you're making me ill."

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this album is a good sampling of the types of songs that have made Pink famous. Most of these tracks have a fun, carefree feel; though there are some references to substances, sex, and fighting that make them too mature for younger audiences, none of the tunes are too graphic. There is some moderate profanity, including the f-word.

Great album with a mixture of styles of pop/rock. not too many uses of language but its not offensive in any way

What's the story?

GREATEST HITS...SO FAR!!! is the first greatest hits collection (though apparently not the last) from one of the coolest rock chicks around -- Pink. The compilation features 18 tracks spanning the singer's ten-year career to date, including everything from early hits like "Get the Party Started" to more recent singles such as "Raise Your Glass." As a whole, the songs demonstrate Pink's tendency to tell it like it is while trying to be herself and have some fun while she's at it. Parents should note that this approach occasionally includes references to substances, sex, and fighting, as well as some profanity.

Is it any good?

Pink has never had the vocal chops of contemporaries like Christina Aguilera, but she's far from a vocal slouch, either. Her respectably strong pipes shine through on several of these songs, with "Glitter in the Air" and "Dear Mr. President" (her collaboration with the Indigo Girls) standing out as special highlights. Plus, the girl knows a catchy hook when she hears it -- a talent that helped to make most of these tracks into huge radio hits.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about how to be yourself in situations where all of the "popular" kids fit a certain mold. Why do some kids follow the crowd -- even when they don't want to?

  • How can you feel good about who you are without letting potential teasing get you down?

  • Is Pink a good role model? Why or why not?
