The Black Eyed Peas might be on a hiatus at the moment, but they’re still at the top of the charts. Just maybe not the type of chart they’d hoped for.
According to Fuse, when dance music festival Global Gathering asked voters to pick the dance song they thought had “the most ridiculous” lyrics, the four-piece group topped the poll with over 22% of votes for their multi-platinum selling 2006 single “My Humps.”

With such classic lyrics as “Mix your milk with my cocoa puff/ Milky, milky cocoa/ Mix your milk with my cocoa puff/ Milky, milky riiiiiiight,” NewsFeed is inclined to agree.
Piped to the top spot was “Nassaja” by German Europop group Scooter, which features the lines, “It’s not a bird, it’s not a plane/ It must be Dave, who’s on the train.”
In at number three were nineties pop act the Vengaboys with “Up And Down,” whose lyrics are composed almost entirely of the phrase “up and down,” repeated endlessly.
British rapper Tinie Tempah, who bragged, “I got so many clothes I keeps ’em in my aunt’s house” in his 2010 hit “Pass Out”, came fourth. Ironically, he’s one of this year’s headliners at the festival.
