13 Hit Songs That Prove 2005 Was The Worst Year For Music

- Page 1

The 2000s were a super interesting time for popular music. Rap was dominating the charts as the most popular genre in North America, rock got a new shot in the arm thanks to everyone's anger at the Bush administration, and pop just seemed to keep getting bigger than ever.

However, you have to take the good with the bad, and 2005 especially seemed to have a LOT of bad. Just take a look at these 13 songs that were absolutely massive hits.

Gwen Stefani - "Hollaback Girl"

We still don't know what a hollaback girl is over 10 years later, but what we do know is this song is obnoxious and frankly kinda stupid.

50 Cent ft. Olivia - "Candy Shop"

Possibly one of the least attractive songs ever, nobody needs to hear about 50 Cent letting some girl "lick the lollypop."

The Black Eyed Peas - "My Humps"

Between its obnoxious beat, the stupid lyrics and Fergie's annoying voice, if we never hear about Will.i.Am's "Milky milky cocoa puff" again it'll be too soon.

Fall Out Boy - "Sugar, We're Goin' Down"

Fall Out Boy went on to have some pretty great hits, but they made a bad first impression when they first landed on the pop charts with this nonsensical bit of stupidity.

Nickelback - "Photograph"

The internet's most-hated band released one of their most-parodied songs, and while the jokes were funny, this song was anything but amusing.

Trust me, the songs only get worse from here...

S Club 7 Singer Calls Out Fellow Band Member For Bullying

Back in the 90s to early 2000s, S Club 7 was one of the hottest musical groups around. From hits like "S Club Party" to "Never Had a Dream Come True," it was practically impossible not to bop your head to the catchy tunes.Their eccentric personalities and one-of-a-kind charm meshed so well together, it seemed like the band members would be inseparable. PASo, it makes it even more disappointing to hear one of the singers has accused his former band member of being a bully.Paul Cattermole, 40, was a member of the British band from 1998 to 2002,
