Don't you remember their best songs of the 2000s list? Crazy In Love, My Love and Ignition (Remix) were all way up there.

Re: the shitty hip-hop on P4k's list, I can't decide if Bandz A Make Her Dance or Beez in the Trap is worse. I'm going with the latter because Lil Wayne's verse in Bands is one of the funniest/most awful things I've ever heard and when I hear that song for the 4th time on our local rap station every day, I usually wait for that part before I turn it.

Waaz ya rreeaaalll naayyymee
Aannnd not ya strippah naaayymeee

I could write a whole post about all the shitty hip-hop I've heard on the radio this year between Frank Ocean, Kendrick Lamar, Miguel and random Cruel Summer tracks, but I'll save you guys the trouble. Suffice it to say that "She got a big booty/So I call her Big Booty" is an actual line in a song now.
i'm really glad i don't listen to the radio. i'm pretty happy thinking that the "good" hip-hop is the worst hip-hop out there.

Sure. That's part of it. Did I say that it wasn't?

I was just tossing it on to LM's list of big, dump pop songs (a la Call Me Maybe) that made pitchfork's list.

The bigger curiosity for me is why they keep tossing Nicki Minaj on their lists? I've really grown to hate that woman's music and stage persona. She's fucking exhausting.

You did, I thought you were implying that p4k and the like also think it's something else, though.

It's a great song, and the only time I will ever say that about outkast.

There is some truly horrible shit out there. I cannot stand that superficial form of southern hip-hop that's popped up recently (Waka Fucka Flame) and I cannot even remotely understand why critics who hold themselves up to standards get behind it. Starting to seem like any 16-year-old with access to half-decent recording equipment, a synthesiser and a blog can get a solid review.

I have to admit this little bit from Mercy

Drop it to the floor make that ass shake
Make the ground move that's an ass-quake
Build a house up on that ass that's an ass-state
Roll my weed on it that's an ass-tray


Makes me smile every fucking time. I guess heavy Kanye and Hit-Boy around makes it forgivable for me.

Shit, something like Hey Ya is as much of a goofy, sugary confection as some of those we've listed and it's revered. And rightfully so. Song kicks ass.
I'm not surprised Crazy in Love, Ignition Remix and Umbrella were on there. They're all songs by artists who've enjoyed a lot of love from critics and the public alike. I'm being all snobby again.... but artists like Carly Rae, Britney, Katy Perry, etc, I file away into a category of lightweight mainstream manufactured pop radio. I was surprised Since U Been Gone made that list. Call Me Maybe, Toxic, Since U Been Gone, Firework, these are all songs that I casually enjoy hearing on the radio or in a shop or something every few weeks, but I'd never ever so much as illegally download them to put on my iPod, whereas tracks like Crazy in Love, Hey Ya, Ignition Remix I actually buy. But this is all getting a bit snobby so I better stop before GAF and 212 combine to have my account shut down

I love her verse on Monster and I thought Superbass was pretty rad. But everything else has made me hate her too. Beez in the Trap is seriously one of the worst tracks I've heard this year. It's an insult to the other songs on the list that have had even five minutes of thought put into them.

hey ya and umbrella are the only songs there that i know, other than ted leo's version of since u been gone. like i said before, hey ya is great. umbrella still ranks as one of my top however many most hated songs in the world (and i wanted to cause some harm to the kid in the t station in boston last month who was doing a shitty acoustic cover of it, fortunatly for him he was on the opposite platform and my train showed up not too far into the song). but i have no idea who any of those other songs are. probably because i don't watch glee anymore.

That's like Laz saying he's never heard an LMFAO song. Those two songs were very hard to avoid when they came out.

Yep.

Though I am unashamedly a fan of Party Rock Anthem.

I kinda like "Sexy and I Know It". It's so stupid that it makes me laugh. Kind of like "I'm Too Sexy" by Right Said Fred does.

Also, I don't mind "Call Me Maybe", and "Crazy in Love" and "Hey Ya!" are great songs.

I'm not sure that I have.

I never listen to the radio or see TV commercials.

I wouldn't know it if I had. No idea who they are.

I saw them perform with Madonna at the Super Bowl a couple years ago.


Does that count?

At least you know who they are then. To not know who they are means you must live in the wildernes in some sort of religious compound without electricty or running water. In NSW's case I am assuming he lives in a giant douche-bunker underground constructed out of solid gold.
