The US #1s of the 2000s Rate (Part 1: 2000-2004 - WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER)

    I've been waiting a long time for a moment like this.

    That's right, it's time for your favourite metallic-cranium'd, redundantly-voweled East Anglian to host his very own rate! Aww, baby boy's all gwowed up. And we are rating EVERY US #1 single of the 2000's, 2000-2009, in the spirit of my boo @Laura Vanderbooben . Ain't it a funny decade? The bourgeoisie turned into rebel through its music, we took off all our clothes when it got hot in herre, you could find me in da club with a bottle full of Bub (except I wasn't of legal drinking age, OOPS), and the cookies stayed firmly in the jar. This is the tale of many a smash, from the slow jamz to the bangers that are exactly what a girl wants - all for you guys! 130 singles that are everything you want. Two (not particularly confessional, sadly) parts of five years each. Dear God what kind of dilemma have I got myself into.

    Anyways - on to the first half of the decade! I don't want you to be asking 21 questions about the rules, so listen up. You have to rate all of these songs, and send them in in THE ALPHABETICAL ORDER BELOW, just so my spreadsheet can be so smooth. Rate them on a scale from "Burn (with extreme prejudice)" to "YYYEEEEEAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!" (0 to 10), with half-points (but no other decimals) allowed, cause I'd be foolish not to allow it. And since this rate would be incomplete otherwise, you have at your disposal a single 11 each! Think carefully about which song you'll be embracing with arms wide open. Oh yeah, and feel free to go to Crazy Town with the commentary.

    But y'all don't wanna hear me, y'all just wanna dance. So lose yourself in the music, drop it like it's hot, and dust these songs off and try again. Whether you fall crazy in love with them or just think "meh, doesn't really matter", it'll be interesting to see how they remind you of the previous decade. You have until April 14th, so get busy!

    I was waiting to reply so you could reserve a post for the results!

    I loved your write up and I'm so perched to do this.
  7. This is going to be amazing. So many classics on the list, but it's interesting to clock the ones that fell through the cracks in the UK.

    I'm not prepared for all the men to be punched out early. Specifically Yeah! It's iconic.

    The Hip-Hop/R&B DOMINATION of it all.

    Don't think there's anything objectionable in here - excited!

    You just have skipped over the Nickelback track. At least I hope you did.

    I know 'Crazy in Love' will walk with this most likely but I really really want 'What a Girl Wants' to win.

    I love that song.

  12. I was just waiting for an excuse to post the superior Yeah! version.

  13. I was just thinking how unfortunate it is that we get that crest of alternative rock from the earliest years.

    Murder Inc gonna claim some victims.

    For the first time in a decade.

    2002 to 2005 was such a hard time in music for me. From the 2000 to 2004 list there are only two 10's for me.

    *Actually there is three.

    I had you down as a 50 Cent fan, teeb.

  19. To be honest, Creed's entry here will make you beg to hear "Photograph". (And trust me, I was listening exclusively to rock radio during Nickelback's peak - there is so, so much worse out there in the Land of Post-Grunge.)

    Also never forget:

    Poor Usher.
