79. David Guetta (feat. Taio Cruz and Ludacris)
“Little Bad Girl”

Though 2011 was a time of strife and division, we’ve got no plans to abandon the communal perversity of the brittle club banger. Guetta, 44, is something of an elder by his culture’s standards — hence, he’s witnessed many progressions (stagnations) in electro-dance music, though “Little Bad Girl” is founded on a Ke$ha-level riff. But the catch is Ludacris, whose entire verse — the best thing he’s done in years — is some kind of ridiculous genius. (His “dollars” line is followed by “ching-ching-ching-ching-ching-ching”… oh right, dollars!) We aren’t getting rid of dumb craziness anytime soon. Why not enjoy the dumbest and craziest?
