In unsurprising news, the Black Eyed Peas’ 2005 double-platinum hit “My Humps” has been deemed to have the worst dance music lyrics of all time. This is according to a vote conducted by Global Gathering, a dance festival held, ironically enough, in Shakespeare’s hometown of Stratford-upon-Avon.
The festival organizers conducted an online poll to determine the track with “the most ridiculous” lyrics. The Black Eyed Peas beat out German europop group Scooter and their song “Nassaja”; Tinie Tempah’s “Pass Out”; Nicki Minaj’s “Starships”; and Taio Cruz’s “Troublemaker.”
It’s hard to argue with voters, though why stop at the “worst dance music lyrics” category? As you can watch in the lyric video below (as if you need a refresher), “My Humps” could potentially beat any song from any genre. [NME]
