Trio - Da Da Da (1982)

Is anyone else hungry?

Nena ‎- 99 Red Balloons (1983)

We didn’t understand what Nena was talking about, but we sure did relate.

Alien Ant Farm - Smooth Criminal (2001)

It says a lot about your band when your most famous recording isn’t your own song.

Puddle Of Mud – She Hates Me (2001)

She’s not the only one.

Wheatus – Teenage Dirtbag (2000)

They’re stuck in some sort of puberty Groundhog Day.

Fountains Of Wayne – Stacy’s Mom (2003)

We’re wondering how this one played out.

Chumbawamba - I Get Knocked Down (1997)

Frontman Dunstan Bruce is now 53, so please stop pushing him over.

The Mighty Mighty Bosstones - The Impression That I Get (1997)

1997 was a good year for inspirational rock numbers.

Baha Men - Who Let The Dogs Out (2000)

Hopefully they got the answer before fading into obscurity.

Survivor – Eye Of The Tiger (1983)

The band delivered a song in keeping with their name. While it’s actually a good song, it’s so hard to take it seriously now.

Starland Vocal Band - Afternoon Delight (1976)

Some Starland Vocal Band delight for your afternoon.
