5. Vanilla Ice - Ice Ice Baby
4. Limp Bizkit - Rollin
3. Wang Chung - Everybody have fun tonight
2. Billy Ray Cyrus - Achy Breaky heart
1. Starship - We built this city

Hmm. Five for Fighting's "100 years" should be on the list too. John Ondrasik could then join Paul McCartney as the only songwriters with two entries on the list.

Oh, wait. Most of Ricky Martin's catalog should be on the list as well.

I disagree with the inclusion of "We Didn't Start The Fire". I recall the Blender editors saying something to the effect that it was ridiculous to place the cola wars alongside the Tiananmen Square massacre as monumental events in modern history. But if you consider Pepsi and Coke as representatives of the scourge that is modern advertising, it's not so ridiculous.

I don't know why "The Sound Of Silence" is on the list either. That song features some of Simon and Garfunkel's finest vocal harmonies.

I kind of like Spin Doctors' "Two Princes".

"I'll Be Missing You" should be way higher than #25. How did a stalker's obsessive ballad turn into a eulogy for the Notorious B.I.G.?

Kelis's "Milkshake" could also be on the list, just because of her denial that the term carries any sexual connotations.

"The Final Countdown" isn't a terrible song, it's just overplayed at sporting events. (Have you ever heard the whole thing?) The Detroit Pistons first discovered it during the late 80s, and they should have exclusive rights to that song among sports teams.
