Our radio jingle is heard on radio stations across the United States and has been since 1999. In that time it has gathered quite a fan base, and an awful lot of people that really really hate it.
But the largest group of listeners we hear from are the multitudes of people who just can’t get our song out of their heads. Something about the simple ditty just burrows it’s way deep into the far recesses of listeners’ craniums.
As a public service we’ve put together this list of 10 extremely catchy songs that will knock the Kars4Kids song right out of your head.
1) Radioactive by Imagine Dragons
2) Call Me Maybe – Carly Rae Jepsen
3) LMFAO – Party Rock Anthem
4) I Like To Move It
5) Gangam Style
6) Rebecca Black – Friday
7) Ylvis – The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?)
8) Gnarls Barkley – Crazy
9) Bon Jovi – Livin’ On A Prayer
10) Queen – ‘We Are The Champions’
And one more for extra credit:
11) It’s Peanut Butter Jelly Time!!!

Here at Kars4Kids we are quite well known for our radio jingle. Many love it, many hate it, and some really truly ABSOLUTELY hate it. However we have never done TV advertising.
Very soon we will be unveiling the first Kars4Kids TV spot, and we are so very excited about that.
Take a look at this behind the scenes sneak peek:
Seriously though these kids may be some of the most talented kids ever! We look forward to seeing a very bright future for every single one of them.
Here are a few pics of the instruments used in the spot:
And here is what they looked like in the middle of the painting process:
So look out for our new ad, and be sure to let us know what you think of it!
The awesome kids in our TheZone camp recorded an awesome version of Old McDonald.
We may be a bit biased though, you see, it’s all about Kars4Kids!
Well, you be the judge!
People always want to know; “How do you spell Kars4Kids?”
Is it Kars with a “K” with the word “for”?
Or maybe Kars with a “K” and the number 4.
Or maybe cars with a “C” and the number 4.
Or cars with a “C” with the word “for”.
Or any of those with or without a space between the words.
Kars4Kids, Kars 4 Kids, Kars for kids, Karsforkids, cars4kids, cars 4 kids, cars for kids, carsforkids… Arghh!
It can make your head spin.
We spell it “Kars4Kids”. But you can spell it however you like.
Or the way John Zuchelli @tvzuke did; in Latin :-)
Today we found the cutest comic strip, albeit one that doesn’t really love our ubiquitous radio jingle.
It’s by the really funny Playoff Beard folks and you can read the original on the Kars For Kids page.
Do you feel this way about the Kars for kids song? Or do you love it?

When Twitter user @larmt10 a.k.a Lenny Armenti asked us to sing our Kars for Kids song at his wedding
we decided to record this version just for him:
Congrats Lenny and Jillian (@jilld711)!
Hope you walk down the aisle to this song :)
We often get asked, tongue in cheek, if we will trade one of our cars for a kid. We have addressed this in the past with our Kars For Kids what do you think we do post on Pinterest.
Today on Twitter users @CounterVulture, @WhatJohnThinks, and @RicardoMarano all tried to give us their kids. So we were inspired to post this voicemail that was left for us recently.
We got a real kick out of it, enjoy!
Imagine our surprise when we saw Robin Williams, yes THE Robin Williams, singing our famous jingle. If this is not pure awesome then what is?
Puddin’ describes themselves as follows;
“The setup is simple. Guy sits in an office break room eating a pudding cup. Eddie Pepitone enters, or is already there. He does something. You react by laughing, wincing, asking for your 20 seconds back, or watching over and over. Easy.”
We are watching it over and over and over again…
Here at Kars4Kids we are not deaf to the fact that, while there are many fans of our radio song, there is also a substantial number of people out there to whom it is worse than nails on a chalkboard. For those of you whose skin curdles and whose hair falls out in clumps at the first note of our song, we present this definitive list of ten things more annoying than the Kars4Kids song:
- Dial up internet
- Root canals
- Hearing the Kars 4 Kids ad, switching the station, and hearing it again
- A test of the emergency broadcast system
- Your wife’s friends husband
- The elevator gets stuck in between floors, and the Kars4Kids ad is playing
- Rebecca Black
- The fax machine noise
* Post will be continuously amended as residents complain :)
Feel free to add your own in the comments.
After the original limited roll out of our new song a few weeks ago, the incredibly positive response has prompted us to release it to a whole host of new stations:
- San Francisco
- Los Angeles
If you are a listener of one of these stations we would love to know if you’ve heard it and what you think. If you’d like to hear the new Kars4Kids song check out our song page.
