10. BRITNEY SPEARS, "HOLD IT AGAINST ME"
I was stoked when rumors started to surface that she was going dubstep — Brit getting hip to '06! Subversive wobbly noises infiltrating the mainstream and freaking out the squares! But, alas, no squares shall be outfroken — most of the dubstep is cordoned off into a little 30-second playpen at the end, so as not to get the rest of the track too grubby. Elsewhere, this is Britney's dumbshittest single since the teen-pop days, as you could probably tell by the title; the verses are a tuneless waste of time, and the chorus rips off a lame, antique pick-up line (and a lame, antique country song, to boot). Woof.
