    A Du Rag is NOT something to keep sweat out of your eyes!! It’s a hair styling tool. Most commonly used to create waves by compression. The reason you see black men wearing them during the day isn’t because they are making a fashion statement it’s because they are protecting their waves so they look fresh when they go out at night. Do some research before you start spouting nonsense!

    I completely disagree with the Ozzy and Kelly mentioning here. It is a song he wrote about one thing, and through a mutual love of music was able to recreate this song with his daughter. It's tone is base lined for various situations besides its original and I happen to believe that the remake happens to have just as much impact as the original. BACK UP off of Ozzy and Kelly.

    A do rag is not merely something that keeps sweat out of "your" eyes. Its something symbolic of black people, that white people are insulted or attacked for wearing.

    Also, the confederate flag is considered the symbol of the South, not the symbol of slavery.

    As for accidental racist. Where the fuck have YOU been? White peolke today are ALL being blamed for slavery they werent even born yet to see. And are demanded to be apologetic for it and subservient because it happened at all. Also ignoring all times in history when white or any other race were enslaved.

    The problem with the Duff sisters song isn't their singing or the music, but the video. Two sisters playing in soap suds ment purely to be erotic. It's fucking disturbing.

    The problem with a duet with Michael Jackson, is Michael Jackson.

    UMN Mode 27 days ago

    Up to song 7.
    None of the songs are bad cept the Spears one.
    As Africa is rife with racism towards white people, so maybe that's why ebony and ivory was banned.

    This list is MORONIC. "Our lips are sealed" by the Duff sisters sounds like it's for 9 year olds? Maybe because of the fact they were working for Disney at the time?! *facepalm* 🙍‍♀️

  • Michael Jackson Forever

    Sure, it's not the best, but I personally LOVE Whatzupwitu.

  • Zelda Williams

    Our lips are sealed WAS aimed at 9 year olds. Does it deserve a Grammy? Heck no, but it introduced the song to a generation that wasn’t familiar to the original.

    The Duff sisters were just as good as the Go-Go's original. Cruisin should not be on this list. That's just hate for Jen Paltrow she improved it. Imagine if the guy just sang alone. The Ebony & Ivory was a hit so why is it here? This video has a serious problem with artists crossing over to try different things.

Why is the concept of the music video/ title unintangble alien just arrived in a foreign country I mean planet. Let's give you a make over by the earthlings/natives so you can blend in, I mean asimulate. Like really? What category of racism is the wait accidental racist lol thanks.

    There is NO such thing as an accidental racist. Many people are OBLIVIOUS about things which are UNINTENTIONALLY OFFENSIVE, and all people have their own opinions and PREJUDICES; however, RACISM is, by its very nature, pointed and intentional. There is a difference in intent between a white person who sees in the Confederate flag a symbol of rebellion, not recognizing that the flag has a totally different meaning to someone else, and someone who Does understand that it can be a racist symbol and chooses to display it for exactly that reason. IGNORANCE is something which simply exists; RACISM, however, is purposeful and intentional- a racist has chosen his beliefs, and is someone who cannot (and would not want to) claim ignorance for any offense. "Accidental Racist" is a misnomer.

  • Shannon Curtis

    Some really bad music duets are due to the fact of 2 terrible musicians who can't sing or rap
    and on top of that VERY UN-CREATIVE to the point where it's a pain in the ear
    For example Ke$hit and pitbull
    Another is Keshit and 3oh3,
    Another is Perry and 3oh3,
    And another is iggy and XCX,
    And a bad trio is manaj, Jessie J, and grundie.
    Honestly ANYONE can come up with those
    When u put such uncreative musicians together then u know the songs gunner be terrible

    And then there those who songs would of been perfect if they didn't have that one phoney artist in there with them
    For example
    One Chris Brown song,
    One Ne-Yo song,
    One Usher Song,
    One J-Lo Song,
    All would of been perfect for me if they all didn't have that one fake ass rapper who sounds like a elephant
    Named "Pitbull"

    Another is the latest Maroon 5 song
    That would have been fantastic if it didn't have that fake ass rapper
    "Cardi B"
    Killing it
    Same with some new Bruno Mars songs featuring that fake ass chick rapper

    I think I know the reason a lot of people (like me) disliked Ebony and Ivory. Two of the best singer-songwriters of the 20th century get together and THAT is what they came up with? I think we expected too much. For two mere mortal singer-songwriters, it would have been a pretty good song. I almost agree with WatchMojo. The song grates. Still I also can't help liking it, at least a little.

      It's a horrible f'king song; and considering they both had reputations as having been womanisers, it has to be the gayest video for a song ever! I mean, in the video, those two guys are effectively screwing each other with their looks and actions. It's hilarious!

    Maybe I'm in the minority here but I liked Britney & Iggy's duet....the song was catchy and compared to some songs today it's really not bad, lol same goes for "Our Lips are Sealed" by Hilary & Hayley Duff, again the song wasn't bad, they sounded good together. Just curious but who makes these lists??

      @Kelly Thompson - Well, at least you're not alone, 'cause I'm also part of that minority.
      To answer you're last question, the 'Saddos' who make lists like these, are trying to get a 'rise' out of people. By winding folk up about things they like, they're hoping to get lots of replies, so they get lots of cash from the ads.
