What's the story?
Is it any good?
The most objectionable lyrics from original versions are bleeped or faded. Messages range from dark to light. The Nirvana-inspired Harvey Danger's "Flagpole Sitta" laments "They cut off my legs now I'm an amputee ... I wanna pierce my tongue." The Earth Wind and Fire classic "Shining Star" updated by Ruben Studdard is uplifting.
The CD, including DVD, is marketed with a variety of cover art. While the one with ghoulish images might make a parent have second thoughts, the version with the clean-cut cast looks innocent enough for a younger child. The music inside each version is the same and not meant for young children.
