This may be an unpopular music opinion: Outkast is a great, great group (Aquemini and ATLiens are two of the best hip-hop albums of all time), but Speakerboxxx/The Love Below is a very overrated album.

well one half of it is anyway.

It's interesting where the songs in this poll fall on Billboard's top songs of the decade.  I had three candidates in mind: In Da Club, Yeah!, and Hot in Herre.  But the 50 Cent and Nelly ranked way lower than I expected; I figured they'd have been top ten.  I knew Mariah's song had major play on the radio and MTV, but I didn't know it was that big.

Britney's I'm a Slave 4 U and Snoop's Beautiful were other ubiquitous tracks.  The Neptunes killed it this decade.

And Yeah! is one of the worst songs I've ever heard in my life.  Can't believe people ate that shit up.

My favorite of theirs is their debut.

One of the most underrated pop songs of the decade? "1 Thing" by Amerie.

Am I crazy to pick "Crazy"?

I heard "I Got A Feelin'" wherever I went during the decade. It pretty much reigned over most of the music mediums I've encountered.

"Umbrella" comes a close second, and Gaga's presence was just as ubiquitous with her "Poker Face".
