Wild Barts Can't Be Broken

] The musical argument between kids, adults and seniors is a parody of "Kids" from the play "Bye Bye Birdie". When Lisa is flipping through the radio channels, President Franklin D. Roosevelt's Infamy Speech speech can be heard. In the Springfield Elementary School shower-room Homer, Moe, Lenny, and Carl sing Queen's hit song "We Are The Champions". When Cyndi Lauper sings The Star Spangled Banner it is to the tune of her hit song Girls Just Wanna Have Fun. When Lisa changes the frequency of the radio, one of the radio stations plays a speech by Franklin Roosevelt about the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor.

Neither the opening with The Isotopes nor the finale with the rather dire song help this one at all, and frankly, if it wasn't for the superb parody of "Village of the Damned", and the kids' revenge by revealing their family's secrets, it'd sink without trace."cite web|url=http://www.bbc.co.uk/cult/simpsons/episodeguide/season10/page10.shtml|title=Secrets of Springfield uncovered.|accessdate=2008-08-23|author=Martyn, Warren; Wood, Adrian|publisher=British Broadcasting Corporation]
