Boom Boom

From Jim Metrock:

Parents may not like the music of the Black Eyed Peas coming out of their middle schooler’s bus radio, but that’s what’s happening.

This group is known for their explicit lyrics and two of their members, Will.I.Am and Fergie, also have solo careers based on vulgar lyrics.

Here is a YouTube video made by a fan of the Black Eyed Peas. Fans will often make their own unofficial music video of a song they like. I’m posting this video because you can hear the original song – the song many young people will ultimately download after hearing it on BusRadio – and you can read the lyrics.


BusRadio would never play such a song on its middle school show. BusRadio knows that the Black Eyed Peas and other vulgar music acts must be introduced to a younger audience very gradually and gently. Here’s BusRadio’s clean version of the song. Many middle school students may be hearing this group for the first time.
