Like many songs that achieved extreme popularity, this song has experienced somewhat of a backlash against its once ubiquitous airplay. Delone Catholic High School in McSherrystown, Pennsylvania, for example, held a student-created fundraiser for victims of Hurricane Katrina called "Stop the Bop."

The playing of this song was only stopped when the school raised $3,000 for hurricane relief and the school thereby "stopped the bop." [2] After the fundraising had concluded, Hanson responded by matching the students' donation as well as sending a copy of their 2004 album Underneath for every student in the school.
