I keep telling myself they are just trying to get clicks. And I remind myself music critics are mostly idiots, unless I agree with them. And still I get sucked in, on occasion.

Vulture.com put together "The 15 Most Embarrassing Songs from the Early 2000s," Most to all of them are pretty well known, and I'll be there first to say, some of them, to me, yes, to me, a probably garbage. BUT! Who am I or anyone to tell someone the music they like sucks.

Here's the list.


1.  "Drops of Jupiter", Train  (2001)
2.  "Low", Flo Rida featuring T-Pain  (2007)
3.  "The Reason", Hoobastank  (2003)
4.  "Redneck Woman", Gretchen Wilson  (2005)
5.  "Photograph", Nickelback  (2005)
6.  "Hero", Enrique Iglesias  (2001)
7.  "Aaron's Party", Aaron Carter  (2000)
8.  "Don't Cha", Pussycat Dolls featuring Busta Rhymes  (2005)
9.  "Tipsy", J-Kwon  (2004)
10.  "Gives You Hell", All-American Rejects  (2008)
11.  "Ocean Avenue", Yellowcard  (2004)
12.  "Need You Now", Lady Antebellum  (2009)
13.  "Promiscuous", Nelly Furtado featuring Timbaland  (2006)
14.  "A Thousand Miles", Vanessa Carlton  (2001)
15.  "My Humps", Black Eyed Peas  (2005)

Why they chose Drops of Jupiter for #1 is beyond me. It's a nice song. And while I'm at it, I don't get the hate for Nickelback. What is your problem?

"Need You Now" is as relatable a song as there is. We've all been there. And while I may be a bit tired of it now, "The Reason" sure hit a chord within me when I was going through my divorce about the same time it came out.

And some of the songs are just plain fun. What's wrong with fun. (Exhale, they are just going for clicks..ahhhh!)
