#84 – The Bloodhound Gang – “The Bad Touch” – (2000)

Okay, so this album (and single) was released in Europe in 1999 but it didn’t reach American shores until 2000, thus its inclusion on this countdown. And what can you say about it? The chorus: “You and me baby ain’t nothing but mammals, so let’s do it like they do it on the Discovery channel” is fairly famous and hilarious – especially for a pop song that would end up charting at #1 in a handful of countries. It received sizeable airplay in the U.S. (and still gets some). The lyrics are fantastic – I’ve never heard so many double entendres compacted in such a short span. I really don’t know what else to say: electronic beat and almost-rap vocals. Only in 1999/2000 would this song have been a hit. It was a different time.
