(Newser) – Every decade has some music we would rather not talk about. You know, the "Achy Breaky Hearts", the "Ice Ice Babies", the "Mmm Bops"—songs that make us look back and ask, “What were we thinking?” The worst of the worst for the 2000s, courtesy of 11Points:

  1. Black Eyed Peas, “My Humps”—Got much of the nation singing about “lovely lady lumps.” It does not get more embarrassing than this, folks.
  2. Baja Men, “Who Let the Dogs Out?”—If it wasn’t a joke from the moment it came out, this might be No. 1.

  1. Lady Gaga, “Poker Face”—If you have even a vague knowledge of how to play poker, this song will drive you insane.
  2. Creed, “With Arms Wide Open”—No lie, this won a Grammy for Best Rock Song.
  3. Gwen Stefani, “Hollaback Girl”—History will remember this as “a weird piercing anthem for…well…no one. Maybe people who like bananas?”
