"My Humps" takes its lumps

Categories: Music
Slate has joined a growing chorus (that includes Dylan Hicks) in declaring the Black Eyed Peas's "My Humps" possibly one of the worst pop songs ever written, recorded, widely distributed, and frequently downloaded. In the May 2004 issue, Blender Magazine published what it considered the 50 Worst Songs Ever, including such stalwarts as Starship's "We Built This City," Bobby McFerrin's "Don't Worry, Be Happy," and The Beach Boys's "Kokomo." So, does "My Humps" really deserve to be placed in this pantheon of musical poo? Give us your two cents in the comments section, as well as, you guessed it, the pop song you believe to be the worst ever exposed to human ears.
