Old Shame: "My Humps". The band have apparently, retired the song and will not play it live anymore. Will.i.am said that "it got to the point where we didnít want to play 'My Humps' no more. You know, ícause, ĎI met a girl down at the disco,í I just didnít want to say that no more, lyrically..."
The Pete Best: Kim Hill was the female vocalist when they released their debut album in 1998. By 2000, however, she left and in 2001 she was replaced by Stacy "Fergie" Ferguson. Very few people remember Kim Hill.
What Could Have Been: According to will.i.am on an episode of Behind The Music, when they first decided to go into a more pop-oriented sound (i.e. when they brought in Fergie), they originally offered the lead singer position to Nicole Scherzinger (later of the Pussycat Dolls.) Her boyfriend (Nick Hexum of 311) told her not to, since she wanted to be a solo artist.
