“Hollaback Girl” by Gwen Stefani

This is an extremely weird song as well as a bad one, built around an obscure slang term that people are still debating the meaning of ten years later, and with an out-of-nowhere cheerleading chant in the middle loudly proclaiming a totally random word. This song was the work of star producers the Neptunes, who basically recycled the same talky, staccato vocal style they used on the equally annoying “Milkshake” the year before, and when you combine that with the nonsensical lyrics, you get a song utterly devoid of any kind of point.

Verdict: Bad
