Top 300 Songs of the 2000s, #290 - 281

Mike Skinner aka The Streets.

It's the second installment of our biggest countdown yet! In the first edition we heard sweet music from industry heavyweights like Pearl Jam, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Basement Jaxx. What's in store for today's edition? Let's find out...

#290 - A Sorta Fairytale (2002)
by Tori Amos

Things you said that day, up on the 101,
The girl had come undone, I tried to downplay it...

#289 -My Humps (2005)
by Black Eyed Peas

What you gonna do with all that junk?
All that junk inside your trunk?

Yep... not even kidding.

#288 - Fit But You Know It (2004)
by The Streets

I'm not trying to pull you, even though I would like to...

Much like 'My Humps,' I just can't say no to this song. Don't even try to deny your love for it.

#287 - {Explain} (2006)
by Sarah Blasko

I finally found where I'll begin,
It's something I cant even explain.

#286 - Into the Galaxy (2008)
by Midnight Juggernauts

An apparition, of twilight visions,
A final mission, of superstition...

#285 - Danger! High Voltage (2003)
by Electric Six

Don't you want to know how we keep starting fires?

Ah, Electric Six. They seemed so full of potential when they released 'Danger! High Voltage.' Then they released 'Gay Bar' and all that potential was washed away. Shame.

#284 - No Sex For Ben (2008)
by The Rapture

Ben Rama, trash people
No sex, no sex for Ben Rama now...

#283 - The Girl of My Dreams (Is Giving Me Nightmares) (2002)
by Machine Gun Fellatio

She's got style, she's got violent ways about her...

 Speaking of bands that should release something new but probably won't because they broke up in 2005 and it looks like they won't release something new... it's Machine Gun Fellatio!!

#282 - Gravity (2000)
by The Superjesus

I didn't know you before,
More than any other day it's only... gravity.

Speaking of bands that should release something new but probably won't because they haven't released anything new since 2004 and their lead singer has gone in some random 'club-music' direction that's a far cry from the awesomeness she showed as a rock star... it's The Superjesus!

#281 - Science Is Golden (2006)
by The Grates

What's the go with all these new set of rules that you live by?
'fraid you might die? Watch them go by...

Oh, an awesome band that's still making music... ... ... ... ... ... yay!

Quite an Australian heavy group this time... can the Aussie groups keep the momentum going? Stay tuned to find out!


  1. Hell to the Yeah with MGF ... but only #283? Must be greatness to come!

  2. I can neither confirm, nor deny that there will be more MGF... ok, there will be. One more song.

  3. Loving this countdown so far Mr. Bond! Ah you bring back all kinds of memories with these songs. And have to agree with you on The all may deny it but you loved this song when it first hit!

Love it or hate it? Agree or disagree? Let me know what you think!
