Nicki Minaj,

10. Nicki Minaj, "Super Bass"

"I mean you're so shy and I'm loving your tie/ You're slicker than the guy with the thing on his eye."

This is a unique kind of compliment in that no-one would ever feel better about themselves after being told this. "The guy with the thing on his eye? That sounds gross, I should hope I'm better looking than that. Also why are you dressed like a slutty baby from the future?"

Sisqo,

9. Sisqo, "Thong Song"

"She had dumps like a truck truck truck/ Thighs like what what what/ Baby move your butt butt butt"

In the space of three lines, Sisqo moves from describing some girl in the creepiest, most overtly sexual way possible, to asking another girl to dance for him, using the word "butt" three times in a row. This one's a keeper.

Black Eyed Peas,

8. Black Eyed Peas, "Boom Boom Pow"

"I'm so 3008, you're so 2000 and late"

The Black Eyed Peas, never ones to be bogged down in miserable details such as "sense" or "quality" really go too far on this one, apparently forgetting how calendars and insults work.

Pitbull,

7. Pitbull, "Give Me Everything"

"Me not working hard? Yeah, right, picture that with a Kodak/ Or better yet got to Times Square, take a picture of me with a Kodak"

We'll be honest, we've sat and stared at these words for hours, and we're still not sure of the point Pitbull wants to make here. Does he want people to take a picture of him while he's holding a camera in some kind of meta-experimental art piece? Did he mean Kodiak? If he did then fair enough, that's kind of cool.

Black Eyed Peas, I Gotta Feeling

6. Black Eyed Peas, I Gotta Feeling

"Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Saturday to Sunday."

Rebecca Black wasn't the first person to exploit America's inability to keep the days of the week straight. But with all their efforts, R. Black and the Black Eyed Peas are still holding out on us. The biggest cliffhanger remains: what happens after Sunday?!
